If you look at the "The Alden of Carmel Story", it looks like they are located in Carmel, CA and they make references to La Jolla, which is in the San Diego area. So I'm wondering why Adam wants me to send a check to a location in Washington. I looked up the address on Google Maps and did a street view and it looks like there's a gas station and a mini-mall.

 

I think I want the Alden Ravello LWBs so much that I am wishing that this is the real deal, but the detective in me is sensing that things just aren't adding up...

 

I can tell you for sure that I talked to the real Adam yesterday, because we talked about only things he would know of. As per my prior post, he started in La Jolla (near me!), moved to Carmel, CA (near Monterey), and now resides outside of Seattle, where he just does online sales... I have sent money to him (usually via Credit Card via his website) and poof, a few days later a magical green box shows up at my door...

Did you mention to him that he should change his email PW? I'm also about to send some money over for a pair of new gunboats =)

Did he mention the confirmed run of Cigar/Ravello LWB?

You know, I never asked if they were confirmed or not to be honest. I don't think Adam would be taking orders down if they weren't confirmed and requesting payment. He hasn't in the past at least.

This is true. Asked about being put on a waiting list earlier this year, and Adam didn't take down my name as there was no expected delivery date(at the time). Was told yesterday delivery is expected in December.

Been eyeing those plain toe grain PTB for awhile at Epaulet. They are a steal on sale! Would be all over them if I didn't already grab a very similar VASS from them

Adam told me the same thing. Incidentally, it's from the same email address an year ago where he had flatly told me that nothing in Ravello was in the offering for another year. He was upfront then and I doubt it's any different now. Sending my check, but cleaved between Ravello or Cigar.

 

Anyone know, the sole/edge details on the DC Ravello LWB that's under production?

How many guys are still sending in checks after what happened with Adam? Just want to make sure it's safe. 

 

A few months ago, Adam mentioned via email that he has no exotic offerings for the year, but now he is able to get two colors for the lwb run.

Interestingly he did mention in his e-mail to me that he will accept paypal or credit card for the remainder of the balance.
