I've worn these so many times that the $300 spent on them has been well worth it.
In addition to a pair of Ravello, I will be on the look out for an irregular pair of snuff Chukkas.

It seems pretty well documented that shell whiskey ages darker than the original color.  Can anyone say how ravello ages?  I've heard that it gets somewhat lighter, but I don't think I've ever seen a side by side comparison of new vs. aged ravello.

Thanks, man. A lot of the credit goes out to my coworker who takes the pictures, both candid and posed. Minor credit goes to iPhone and Instagram editing, haha.

The 1494 should be very comfy once broken in.  The absence of a liner leaves the stitching exposed.  By the end of the day it starts to chafe a bit even with socks.  Otherwise, the flex welt has served me well on long trips.

May I ask what part of Baltimore?
