There have been 20 times more Ravello out there than Scotchgrain color 8.

One of my grail shoes/boots.

This scotch grain thing is starting to grow on me. Those wingtip boots are amazing. Who offered those? Those are calf, correct?

The scotch grain boots are shell.

Pretty sure they're shell -- I've seen photos (only that, mind you) of scotch-grain color 8 cordovan.

Holy BeJesus. I thought so, but I didn't want to say it. That is a whole different type of awesomeness. I need them!

cant see any reason why a scotch grain #8 offering couldn't be done up (assuming the tooling is still avail)

 

I'd be in in a heartbeat

Anyone know who made those come about? Not that we'll ever see them again... Although may be easier than Ravello/Whiskey/Color 4

The shells would have to be embossed with the pattern (possibly by a third party if Horween does not offer it anymore)

^ Viberg offers scotch grain horse hide (and I think cordovan but not sure). I would not think it is beyond Alden but who knows.

There was a boutique in Italy that had a few pairs of grain shell models available this past summer.

I'm not sure who the OP was, but how long ago were those available?
