Final entry into my Ravello week, my LHS. It is their maiden voyage today. I have today off, so I don't have my normal office setting... :-)

 

 

 

Have a happy Friday!

Not giving a personal opinion one way or the other on the price but I think a lot of people would rather pay full price in a store

On a semi-related note ...

I've had to pay the full retail price on only 33% of my Alden collection ... but that collection consists of just 3 models. shog[1].gif

I'll be patient enough to pay off retail for my 4th pair ... still looking for a shell cap toe boot in 8 or 8.5 depending on the last.

So you were sitting on 3 different pairs of unworn Ravello Aldens that all set sail this week?  Is that right?  What else do you have in your shipyard that hasn't left the harbor yet?

That is correct. I just got the PTBs last week, but have had the LHS and LWBs for about a month. With the holidays I didn't wear Alden's as much, as I mainly wear them to work.

Other shoes that I have that not ventured out yet is:
-Cigar LWB (although they have been carpet broken in)
-Color 8 Full Strap
-AE Snuff Suede Chukka
-C&J for RL Gianni Boot

I *think* that is all. I like to photograph my shoes before I wear them at my conference table in my office at work and sometimes it takes me time to do that.

Are they on your list of "may be returned" or have you just not gotten around to wearing them?

My favorite this week so far. :slayer: I'd love to see this one next to your Cigar LWB. 

 

Sir, as per your request, here is a comparison of the "Rare" Shells in the LWB.

 

Left to Right: Whiskey, Cigar, Ravello w/ Dark Edges, Ravello w/ Antique Edges

I do not plan to return any of them. I did toss the idea of returning the Gianni's for a few days (because of the issue that arises when buffing them), but I am going to keep them.

 

I really like to take pictures of them before I wear them and I don't always make time to do that. I do it at my office at work, because I really like the lighting in my office and my table. Once I get them photographed it is typically just a matter of a few days before I wear them... :-)

Thank you kindly. All are superb with the antique Ravello narrowly edging out the Cigar for the top spot. I'd love to see the Whiskey with a decade or two of patina.
