Sharing a new acquisition: a brand new pair of Ravello LWBs (style 9750) from Alden SF, originally purchased in mid-2012. Production date on these is April 2012.
The color is incredible - the richest Ravello I have ever seen or owned. It blows my other two Ravello LWBs out of the water in terms of richness (a 97504 x Leffot from 2011 and a 97502 x SF from 2010). The last picture in this set is compared with my 97504s (2012 production). My 97502s are currently at Aram's, getting some flexwelt soles, but I will take a family portrait once they are back.
Although I love the antique edge of the 97504, I have to say that the darker edge and welt on the 9750 is very sleek and classy. Super happy with these.

Great Odin's Raven!
I love Ravello with a dark edge. Well played JSO, well played.
