Very nice. Where did you get them? Not that I expect to be able to buy. But I don't think I see a lot of Ravello NST's .

Incredible how times have changed. I kopped two of my three exotics right out of the gate probably about 2 to 3 years ago. Things really tightened up and this week I received my third pair. Quite a drought. I have really come to appreciate color 8 recently. Extremely diverse.
I know mac works in financials but seems like he has been silent for a while now.
Same here bespoke. Took the advice from many experts here in that calling/e-mailing retailers on a regular basis (monthly) set me up to land rare Alden shells.post #81050 of 1224165/6/14 at 10:27pmpost #81051 of 1224165/7/14 at 1:18amNot my auction (or anyone I know, for that matter), but those interested in a Ravello PTB in 10.5d may want to look here: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=310951545795
It'll be interesting to see what these go for.post #81052 of 1224165/7/14 at 4:03amQuote:
I've never seen antique on black but I imagine it would look nice. Black always impressed me as a dress shoe and antique a little more casual. But the contrast might work. No speedhooks is a huge plus for me.post #81053 of 1224165/7/14 at 4:08amQuote:Originally Posted by brp2

The sellers got brass balls to be listing those with such a low opening bid and no reserve but I guess with Ravello, the risk is minimal. I'll bet he gets $850, which net of eBay fees will let him clear about $725. Very nice shoes.post #81054 of 1224165/7/14 at 6:46ampost #81055 of 1224165/7/14 at 6:58ampost #81056 of 1224165/7/14 at 7:00ampost #81057 of 1224165/7/14 at 7:03ampost #81058 of 1224165/7/14 at 7:03am
I'm guessing he means the people have changed. Now it's never people with maybe less knowledge, etc. different personalities. I've been on other forums where it was like that. People moved on or matured over the years so it just wasn't the same.post #81059 of 1224165/7/14 at 7:05amQuote:Originally Posted by thebeebs
Anyone who got into the Alden game over 3 years ago likely had easy access to most, if not all, of the exotics, Color 4 included. I bought my first pair in 2011 and hopped onto TSM and got cigar, ravello, and whiskey with relative ease. Stumbled across my Color 4s a little over a year later, and promptly launched a PSA whereby a few of us on here, such as Sazon, snatched up the remaining pairs.
Times have changed.
Ah regrets. I bought my first alden may 2011 from leathersoul. I still remember TSM's offering of those rare shells. I foolishly convinced myself to pass on it and buy AE then new offering and heavily discounted LWB Shell.
3 years later, I am paying more with money and time trying to acquire what once was readily available to me.
Shoot me now.post #81060 of 1224165/7/14 at 7:07am
