My understanding from Mike at Epaulet (after a visit to the Alden factory) is that ravello is non-existent at this point and the wait might be up to two years. We have a MTO order in the mix for a ravello "Obscura" boot that we might not see until 2014. So it may make sense to stick with #4 and cigar if that is something Kathy thinks she can more readily get a hold of.
I would definitely be down for this #4 wingtip boot on either grant or plaza last.How about the following:Cigar Tanker Boot on Grant LastGrant LastAntique Edge trimAll eyelet360 flat weltcommando or waterlock sole
Mike, any chance you would be willing to run the Austerity brogue in navy shell on the Alcudia last? I tried these amazing cognac cordovan captoe oxfords on the Alcudia in Carmina's Paris outpost that were allegedly an exclusive (although out of stock in my size) and I thought that last was amazing. Think it would make a fantastic fit with the austerity brogues.
