    I agree. 620 is way more than I'd be willing to spend on Alden Suede. I got my Mocha Kids for 350 during a sale. Probably never would have paid retail for them.
    +1

    It's almost comical. You will have about 9 people in a row to start coming together on the specs, and then a 10th person comes and tries to sway the first 9 in to changing the last from something like Barrie to Plaza or Modified.

    Pebble grain #8 shell. Not common, but not too interesting either (IMHO).

    Went with the color 8 full straps over the suede tassels and went with the BB color 8 wingtips over the color 8 saddles. I needed some single leather sole dressy color 8. Limiting myself to one more Alden this year outside of preorders...

    If you want sizes in BB shoes, call their larger stores, starting with the Madison Avenue flagship. The Chicago stores are large as well. The inventory online is different than store inventory. I just got a size from Madison Avenue that wasn't available online.

    Great boots, just bought a pair and really like them, have an order in for a MTO of a snuff suede pair from J Gilbert. They said the MTO was confirmed.

    Quattro Ravello "vertical" sampling. From unworn to "almost trash". The three worn pairs have been treated with Renovateur, and are just a bit darker than they would be without.

    What's the story with your ravello longwing collection. I agree that ravello longwing on a dark sole is one of Alden's very best models...

    Where are the cigar tassels from?  They look fantastic!

    Thanks for the kudos! Cigar tassel's are from Alden San Francisco, their sister store is Alden Washington DC.

    See Ya,

    MTC2000-very nice Ravello LWB collection. I agree that having multiples of this shoe makes sense. Now if I could find just 1 pair of these in my size would be great!

    See Ya,
    Steve

    Yes, they have. Leffot does not have it now.

    +1. The pebble grain makes it look like normal calf. Wasted horse IMHO.

    This is a great makeup. I have the standard suede tassel and the suede NST. I would like to get a suede loafer in snuff. This look close, but pardon the pun, no cigar.

    Had a great visit to Leffot today. I couldn't resist the captoe #8 boots with antique edge. Pics to come when they arrive next week...

    Yep, the inventories are different. Note: the online folks will do a nationwide search for you of their retail stores. I have found numerous models this way.
