    Anyone have an email address of Alden D.C.? I couldn't find it on any Alden website.

    Appreciate if you could share it here. Thanks!

    I disagree. Those shoes do not look that drastic to me. I think that there are natural occurrences and differences in leather

    If I saw them in person I may disagree

    Br, that's why I wanted to see them in natural light.IMO it isn't as pronounced. Still if they were color 8, calf, etc. I would return them. However I would not be inclined to return ravello. Should you have to accept less than first quality shoes? No, however the market being what it is, I would swallow the bitter pill. Just my .02

    (A) I use separate brushes for black, color 8, cigar, and ravello-whiskey (same brush)
    (B) I MUCH prefer Alden's paste wax for cigar over brown Saphir cordovan cream... Saphir leaves a terrible film that I can't get rid of, regardless of how little/light I go with application. I am going to try and clean them with Reno today unless anyone has any other recommendations. I would appreciate any advice here.

    I use the same brush for my ravello and whiskey with the hope that the whiskey darkens some. However, I have not used any paste wax on any of these shoes just yet.

    do you guys use different brushes for different types of leather, eg 1 for shell 8 and 1 for a burgandy color shoe?

    I didn't think it was that big a deal until I saw these pics. I would be pretty annoyed every time I looked down and saw two different shoes. Good luck with this however you choose to proceed...

    Definitely an interesting idea. I'm not sure I'm willing to risk the uncertain outcome when these are still unworn, however.
    Seems too risky to me. You may not be able to exchange/return at that point.

    That is the correct phone number. Email is washdc -at- aldenshoe.com (replace -at- with @, obviously)
