    ravello chukkas arrived today. does this look normal for a brand new pair?

    that's patina getting started for you.

    also when leather is 100% consistent everywhere and a lighter brown in color, it looks totally cheap and fake.

    can anyone tell which last this is?

    it has the flex welt sole. mostly curious if this is lined or not as I'm looking for a summer shoe


    van last. those things wear like slippers. i could not buy them because i felt i would foolish wearing them out of doors. incredibly comfortable

    Is it a tassel loafer?? If so, Aberdeen.

    no, it is a shell captoe derby for Brooks

    Sorry, the code looked like a tassel loafer code, did not realize it was Brooks.

    Models numbers starting with zero in an Alden shoe normally mean they are Alden for Brooks Brothers.

    Which shoe on J.Crew do you think is worth it? Cordovan Chukka Cordovan Captoe boot [both are 2 month waits in my size] Snuff suede boot w/crepe sole Longwing
    If I'd have to pick one it would have to be the Cordovan captoe boot. The cordovan chukka is the 1339 model you can get from most Alden retailers, the snuff suede boot is great for the fall but I wouldn't weat it all year round, and the longwing while nice, is more generic than the captoe boot. I had the longwing at one time but opted to go with the longwing from Winn Perry for the double water lock soles.

    Received my Ultimate Jumper boots today. Absolutely exquisite! And the smell of that leather[​IMG]

    I'll post some pics of them as well as the rest of my collection later. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to sniff my boots.
