Time to dig in...




Cigar Indy Boot (all eyelets), Ravello CT Boot shaped to the Grant Last - both on commando sole, so I'll actually get some serious use out of them.  I had to compare to the recent Ravello Wingtip Boot...




More pics, but I'll spoiler below! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

















I love the look of the Grant last and I'm excited that it fits much better than a typical Barrie lasted boot.  The Trubalance last/indy boot is surprisingly the most comfortable last for me so far.  It fits extremely well, but just has an insanely large toe box.  The rest of the last is awesome.  They're definitely clunky and casual.  But I'm a huge fan!



10.5 D? By the timing of your arrivals, I must have just missed on the Cigar Indys! Congrats - they are maybe at a better home as I was planning on abusing them!

Not 10.5D. ;-) The Indy box (on left) says 9.5D.

One box was TSM. And if he got them off the website they only had 10 and 10.5D. When Kathy showed me the one Daytripper return I swear she said 10.5D. Hince my prediction. I didn't look at the pic that close though. Guess we would need confirmation. Those were my feeble detective skills smile.gif

Here's my modest collection:

Next up are color 8 tankers and LWB.

That is a terrific looking collection my friend. The 975 is a great and classically timeless model. Happy Hunting!

Ben, it is essentially impossible to get rid of 100% of the creases on an Unstructured, Unlined Dover. Trust me, I tried. ;-)

I had both in my cart. Then dropped the LWB. It was tough, but gonna try to make a MacNeil 2nd a stand in for it though. If it doesn't work I'll wait till the next round.

HaHa. That was their second (latest) voyage. :-)

They are definitely going to be worn here shortly as they have been patiently waiting long enough now for voyage 3. :-)

I see ATLVOLs Cigar Dover posted today. Has there been a Ravello/Whiskey Dover pattern done before?
