    These are one of my favorite pairs that I own. I'm glad you're enjoying yours! They look great!

    I am not a fan of shell, but OMG, those are nice! I'd have to say that they are the best looking Indy's on earth. Too bad they aren't a regular production model. Anyone with an 8.5D want to unload, please let me know :)

    Are you kidding me? I was there yesterday as well. Actually I just flew from Toronto just to buy my first Alden's (right now I just have some Crockett and jones). I wonder if we bumped. And to top it off I tried those NST too, I bought the dark brown ones in calf. Beautiful shoes. And you're right, Kathleen is so nice and patient. I asked her if she was all alone and she told me that two more guys work there but that they got sick so she had to take care of all of it just herself. But she didn't complain, she was very attentive and managed to pay attention to everybody entering the store. I was there over an hour since I also tried the Indy boot and a cool 8 cordovan oxfords. I leave Monday and I'm thinking if I go back and get the oxfords. In sum, a great place, a great experience and a great person Kathleen is. I'll definitely come back.

    Kathleen = Kathy?

    Kathy from DC is a pleasure to deal with and is extremely helpful.

    Hola gentlemen! I know it's been a while, but I still try to keep up with this thread. The comments, suggestions, and pics continue to make this thread a great resource. Sorry I haven't been able to participate much recently.

    Today I'm sporting my ravello wingtip boots (inspired by @mcarthur 's recent post) and J Crew striped socks in support of the Houston Astros at an MLB viewing party. Hope y'all are well...

    I won an ebay auction today. Something I find increasingly difficult to do. Straight tips on Aberdeen last. My Epaulet alpine grain are the only Aberdeen pair I have and i hope these fit similar to those. Same seller as the Nassau 4x4 a grail shoe @ 2500$ it was tough to pass-up but I have snuff Nassau from Unipair and really this ravello captor is much more versatile for me.

    Yeah - her card says Kathleen. I was a little overwhelmed when I walked in the store, so I only sorta caught it. She was outstanding. Unfortunately she was all by herself...

    These look amazing! It's a great looking color even in the shade. Enjoy them! Lawn's looking good...


    These are great! Enjoy them. They will look good with a ton of different outfits. Excited to see some more shots of them once they come in!



    This is kinda crazy, IMO. I just sold a pair of these worn twice for about half of that and feel really good about it.

    I feel the same way. My advice is often to wait and make calls. You will get the shoe at retail with some effort and quick trigger payment in the right time.

    Those are an excellent looking whiskey pair so popping an extra couple hundred still seems fair game.
