    !!!!!! Truly outstanding, Sir. Congratulations on a collection any of us would be proud to have and wear. Question about the chukkas: are they all Barrie? Is the reverse chamois chukka from J Crew? Also - second from the end: is that a modified last?

    hmmm.. I saw the captoes last week at DC but Kathy said she only had E width.

    might need to get on a D width preorder..

    thanks for the leffot info, might try them too

    Thanks guys, the tankers are super comfortable too. The feel like slippers. I like how the dark the #8 is on these, almost looks like dark cigar.

    I was going to say they looked almost like cigar, but I assumed it was just the lighting/way the pic came out. If that is how they look up close in the flesh, I'm very excited about my pre-order -- assuming they come in looking the same. Enjoy those!

    The photo is pretty accurate, at least on my monitor. In bright sunlight of course the purple tones comes out but inside or in indirect light they look very dark which I like on this style.

    kwhitelaw - Outstanding collection!

    Alden won't change the sole so no need to send them to the US.
    I'd think the Shoe Healer in the UK would be able to handle a resole.

    this latest batch of ravello I grabbed this week (ptb and lwb) may very well satisfy my 'need' for cigar lwb tbh. wasnt expecting it to be so dark, was anticipating more a shade of my day tripper

    Agreed. I had planned on a brown cordovan LWB from another manufacturer but now I don't think I will be

    assuming we are the same page with said other manufacturer... I may employ them for a dark brown shell boot (if I cannot obtain a commando sole brown boot) and then i may every well call it quits on future purchases..

    unless an influx of #4 appears out of nowhere lol. love my #4 wallet
