That was my guess. I was figuring beginning of 2016. I preordered a ravelo wingtip boot from AoM in May of 2014, and am supposed to take delivery of a cigar wingtip boot instead in October of 2015. Over a year for delivery and that speaks nothing on the people that opted to wait for the ravelo. Not knocking AoM, they handled very professionally.
Even thou Fok totally cut a promo on how awful the name was, I'm happy the Gandalf is getting made. It took a few bumps along the way but the inspiration is still there. It's a unique leather that will fit nicely into my collection.
