Thanks, and yes, I'd rather put the money toward shoes than legal expenses.

I mean, after all, these ARE Ravello!:bounce2:

How about paying to have them re-lasted?  Anybody tried that yet?

 

See Ya,

Didn't you just finish telling me last night to calm down, not impulse buy and only purchase after careful consideration of how you'll actually use the shoe? :stirpot:

 

jk. I thought the same thing as soon as I saw Uncle's post today :cheers:

Haha, I did.

 

I was being facetious.

 

My cigar tassels are actually my favorite pair of Alden shoes, probably favorite shoes, period.  Not sure I need a pair in Ravello though.  Have always wanted a Ravello LHS, but can only do LHS in a C width.  One day...

 

Other than that, I'm just looking for the Thor boot and the Color 8 Naval boot (Will also need to be a C width).  Maybe the straight tip bal in Color 8 and Black if I end up wearing a suit every day again, even though it would be excessive since I already have the Perf Cap toe Bals in both colors, as well as the cigar strait tip.  But hey, if I were wearing a suit 5 days/week, they would all still get plenty of use.

I hate I didn't buy those cigars. My ravello nsts will cover the WANT for the whiskey pair, but the cigar is awesome and will be missed.

Are you serious?  I didn't realize there was such a thing as MTO cashmere argyles.  Talk about fancy!

The tassel thing is growing on me. Actually enjoying the article on the development of tassel loafers posted earlier today (thanks! wish I could remember whom to thank...).

 

Is the Thor Boot really ever going to happen? I feel like I read a post from over a year ago on getting that makeup off the ground.

 

Have you spoken with Leffot about the C width issue for their next batch of Navals? I know they usually accommodate E widths; I would hope that they would let one pre-order a narrow size.

 

Best of luck to you and the rest of our gang in finding whatever grails you seek.

WW looking great guys! Wish I could have participated. #8 for me.

Good Evening Fellas! Wow Mac your socks are stealing some of the show from your amazing shoes.

Quick question for you guys. I won this pair of LHS CXLs in #8. I used Renovateur on them, but is there anything else I should be using?

I stole these for $36 on eBay. smile.gif

^^ I think you pretty much got it covered for CXL. I wouldn't use anything else.
