Which vendor did the ravello wingmonks?
I find that if you don't "prepare" the combination tree by sort of expanding it already, before putting it in, it doesn't tend to fill out the width fully.
It really does.
It's a bit surprising that Alden went from machine-stitching the apron to hand-sewing it. Seems like it would only become more complex and more prone to errors. Anyone know why they changed it?

Those are looking pretty nice. Just wear them and continue to care for them and you will be golden.
I didn't think you were supposed to wear those yet... Tsk Tsk. Looking good bud!
Killer LWBs. Those have a magnificent color to them!
Great chukka! :-)
Nice looking Cigars. The brass hardware looks nice. Though for some reason in the lighting they look like rose gold in color...
The LHS is a great model. Great for Sundays... ;-)
Looking good Zippster!
Good to see those getting out! Congrats on Grad School and best of luck!
Those are looking superb! Snuff said... Yeah, I went there also.

After almost one year of sitting, unworn, in my closet, I decided to take my TSM Ravello WT boots on their maiden voyage today. They looked so pristine sitting there, I just couldn't bring myself to wear them. But after seeing @mdubs pic from earlier this week, I decided today was the day.post #115504 of 1224168/28/15 at 7:27ampost #115505 of 1224168/28/15 at 7:34amQuote:
Thanks, Mike! I only seem to do this with Ravello. I have no problem putting Cigar and Whiskey to work right away. I still have unworn TSM NST Ravello boots sitting in the closet!post #115506 of 1224168/28/15 at 7:43ampost #115507 of 1224168/28/15 at 7:52ampost #115508 of 1224168/28/15 at 7:54amQuote:
You have to make sure the vendor fills out the paperwork correctly, or is willing to. I suggest contacting them first before purchasing.post #115509 of 1224168/28/15 at 8:04amQuote:Originally Posted by MrDV

Beware, unless the brass is treated with a clear coat, it may oxidize and you may get a green hue.post #115510 of 1224168/28/15 at 8:05ampost #115511 of 1224168/28/15 at 8:30ampost #115512 of 1224168/28/15 at 8:32ampost #115513 of 1224168/28/15 at 8:53ampost #115514 of 1224168/28/15 at 9:01ampost #115515 of 1224168/28/15 at 9:12am
