ravello LWB round 2!

 

received these today. .5 smaller than I normally take, but they fit with no socks so I may keep them (jcrew offered an appreciated discount due to my first pair being lost in transit)

would you happen to know if they require full payment up front, or partial for a preorder? 

 

TIA

For me, it really depends on the shoe. I think the snuff and tan suede chukkas both look great, but I ultimately decided that the tan would be more versatile and work with a wider variety of belts. I should note that I went into the store with every intention to purchase the chukkas in snuff.

In the loafers, I much prefer the snuff or dark brown, thinking the tan suede on the loafers looked a bit odd for some reason. I went with snuff in these.

Kind of ridiculous how all of the retailers keep saying that there will be no Ravello for the foreseeable future, and a few months later it starts raining Ravello.

 

I'm not complaining and I am glad to hear that it is popping up occasionally.  I'm sure its not the retailers fault, they are probably just relaying what they are told by Alden, but the pattern is getting kind of old.

then i tried on the tan and it's perfect.

store guy said that snuff was definitely more versatile and you "have to get used to it" but it goes with more colors.  he sells way more of the tan and the dark brown though...which are further on the spectrums.

Interesting, looks like I'll have to go check out both colors in person.
