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.
Remember, I havent heard from Kathy yet. I have spoke to Joe and Chey? is that how you spell it? And they thought those were our best possibilities. Yes, Ravello is basically gone for a long while.
