The watch is really great looking and there are a lot of great pics of them on the Internet. I cannot take good watch pics and have not removed the protective platics yet. Here is a pic somone else took:

new chukkas from NRO......when I ordered these I thought I selected the snuff suede from the drop-down box on their website, but after I opened the box and double checked my original e-mail receipt, apparently I had picked the tan suede instead. I thought I was going to have to send them back and exchange them for the snuff, but after seeing these in person and trying them on I've decided to keep them.

The pictures definitely don't do the color justice, especially since they're a very similar shade to my couch cushions. This is probably the best dumb mistake I've made in a while, and I'll stay on the lookout for the next NRO sale and get the snuff suede next time!

^ spray them with a couple coats of silicon suede protector if you want them to darken up

Snuff suede chukka isn't all that.  I was disappointed when I saw them in store.  The color was lighter than I expected and closer to the tan suede than I liked.  Plus, I swear it has sort of a pinkish hue to it.

 

Anyhow, excellent purchase!  The tan suede is awesome. Wear them in good health.

any more pics of these? i'm considering the natural CXL on the modified last, but having never seen modified last in person, i'm kinda hesitant. everyone says that modified looks bulbous and funny at certain angles.

How does Ravello look in real life? It looks really red in some pictures, and others look more like Whiskey.

It seems to vary by batch more than any other shell. At least that's been my experience with it. My pair of LWB's in ravello are quite reddish brown while others I have seen in person have much more of caramel color. It really depends on the run.
