Alden “Brassvello” LWB
I wanted to start off my blog by highlighting my favorite pair of Alden’s within my collection to date. That would be what I now call my “Brassvello” LWB. It is essentially the traditional Ravello LWB, but has the addition of the agatine brass eyelets. Between the eyelets, the antique edging, and the amazing Ravello color on this model, it is just one exceptional piece of footwear that I absolutely love!
This particular model was a special make-up for the Ludlow JCrew Shop in New York City and was only made once. I manage to purchase this particular pair from a good friend who managed to get them from the store directly. Alright, enough with the talking, here are some pictures!
Model: Alden Ravello Longwing Blucher with Brass Eyelets
Wow, what a nice friend! They look great !
Thank you Saz! I really love this model. Must have been a really awesome dude, huh?
Congratulations, Mike!! Very nice brassvello!!
Steve! Thank you very much! It is a terrific shoe! I am excited to get another Ravello LWB and do the conversion via my friends at B. Nelson… I will let you all know how that goes when its done!
Great blog, Mike!
A great tool for dudes who haven’t been sucked into the SF vortex!
GK, thanks! Ha, its a very slippery slope! 😀
Spectacular collection, Mike. This particular model is my holy grail of Aldens. If you ever come across a pair in 7.5D, please let me know.
Gil, thank you very much! I really love my Aldens!!! I will definitely let you know if I encounter a 7.5D…
Definitivamente una belleza de zapatos amigo!!!
Lo felicito que tenga esos gustos por ese modelo:
Yo no conocía la marca Alden y lo tengo es en florsheim (Imperial Duality)
Estaré atento cuando me tope con ellos y poder comprarlos.
