Mac-These are really nice whiskey PTB...excellent color! See Ya,Steve
    I agree...Whiskey WT boot is rare.  I was not aware its not been made before.  Maybe it was just MTO, or another brand.  No doubt theres a few members of SF that does not think Whiskey is a good option in WT boot on commando.  The Ravello SW shoe was another rare offer yesterday.  I'm not aware of those being available for a long time too.  I realize odds on getting one of these type of make ups are slim.   See Ya,Steve 
I think a whiskey boot of any type (except chukka) is fairly rare.  I've asked a few shops about the chances of getting a whiskey CT boot, Whiskey NST boot.  None seem interested.  Alden DC seems pretty progressive on some of the rare make-ups and Kathy said not likely.  Since I've been a member this is the first whiskey boot I've seen become available.  With that being said...I've seen a lot of make ups this year go into production we've not seen for a long time.  I think...

Feeling Lucky?  Go ahead make my day! I'm in See Ya,Steve
My Ravello LWB from AOC arrived today.  I'm very pleased with tis shade of Ravello, and the quality of this pair too.  Adam did a great job!  I took some photos next to other Ravello I have,m and across from Ravello is 3 different pairs of Whiskey I have.  I'm no mdubs or Uncle on photos, and the lighting is not perfect but here you go!     See Ya, Steve
