Thanks for replies! The short summary would be; nothing particular, keep wearing and brushing and contact a renowned cobbler if there is a real problem.

Well, based on information I saw previously in this thread, B. Nelson charges $15 per eyelet (or $30 per pair of eyelets) which for a pair of boots which comes out to a pretty significant amount.. If you've already priced it out at $60-80, you found a good deal. But keep in mind that to ship the boots from China to and from the US would probably cost you a pretty significant sum as well. The ~$20 you save on the job still wouldn't be worth it due to shipping cost. For you, shipping to/from China/Taiwan is likely much cheaper in comparison.

For me, none of that hassle is worth it, especially since I'm based in Taipei where Dr. Sole is located. I can drop the boots off myself for service.

Thanks! I knew I had seen it somewhere. Think I'll wait for that one.

Depending on the shade of Ravello, I think it looks really good with the AE Lamar in Tan Dublin, assuming your Ravello has broguing/perfs. There is variation amongst these belts in color too, but I don't adhere to the matchy-matchy belt stuff anyway. As long as it's vaguely similar, it's fine by me.

Looking great Henry! Love them Ravellos! In terms of belts, I just use a medium brown belt that I found years ago. Works well, not sure which AE Belt would go best, but Chili sounds like it would be close.

I use a Medium Brown belt from Johnson & Murphy that is a pretty good match.  I use it for Ravello and Whiskey wears....

Thanks for the feedback guys!

it's funny. I love the Brassvello, but personally would not put the brass on my WT boots. At first I thought it was too busy, but then realized it's essentially the same thing as the LWB. The cobbler did a great job on the conversion though.

The tanker should come in the 88 version at this point!!!

Thank you Chris. Sorry for the late reply. I just took some more photos for you and a side by side photo with the choco tanker and snuff V-tip.









I love the snuff v-tip. Does anyone stock these in the US?

Predicted Tanker sellout time? 5 minutes?

The chamois might stick around for 30 minutes or so. Can't predict demand on those.

Pre-store it. I believe there is an option to.

I'm not gunning for anything today, but I plan on hitting refresh every 5 seconds on Monday for the Greenwich.

3 years ago those tankers could not sell.

I bought my pair weeks after the pre-order.

Now.. good luck if you aren't typing at 80 WPM!

I'm already logged in and have a worksheet so that it's a copy & paste matter. :)

Maybe in a few years, like Nike sneakerheads, we'll have bots for Leffot.

You can use a script, but I'm just too lazy write one.
