Classic.

nephew,
I am not in agreement with your assumption because I believe that the ravello lwb will at least will be available in a retailor within the next 18 months. If a am incorrect, I will make a contribution in your name to the Wound Warrior Project

That Styleforum SW #8 looks rad, but the Alt Wien that Epaulet does in #8 with antique is close enough for me. I'd love a SW whiskey blucher though.

And I think Unionmade and Leffot are two of the best retailers in terms of offering unique makeups.

But I'd rather the upper be black shell instead of calfskin.  Definitely a more casual look with the antiqued edge trim, but that's what I'm going for with these.

I'm expecting recrafted 975s back from B Nelson any time now.   I assumed the original black welt would remain, but Nick emailed me to confirm what color edging and welt I wanted.  I'd be thrilled if he replaced the welt as well...we'll see.  I will post pics when they arrive.

Nice! Did you end up with the 9.5Ds? I got a call from Kathy and crew a few weeks back.

I agree 100% uncle Mac...I was just quoting a line from a ridiculous eBay post trying to sell Ravello LWBs for $1700. I actually should have some Ravello soon...wingtip boot from TSM should be ready within the next 4 months or so.

Unbelievable how much the 9.5D cigar cap toes were passed around/over. I was one spot out, and the 10Ds were gone immediately. At least I'll be first for the new "black cigar" when it comes around again.  

 

With the cooler weather, I wore the Color 8 today. The right shoe is trying hard to make up for its ugly cap crease with some nice color variation as it ages.

I've got 2 different ravello boots coming this winter. If either has this shade I will be ecstatic.

Got the call for the 9.5's about a month ago. This is the first time I'm questioning my decision. These are a very nice shade of cigar. Not super dark like some I've seen.

Thanks. They're actually 8.5Es that were not assigned to anyone on the list. Perfect fit.

I hope you're correct, because I don't want to wait 18 months for the boots! I already waited 3+ for another pre-order that never came to fruition, so hopefully the timeline on these is quicker. Ed said they are confirmed with Alden already, so it shouldn't be much longer. I will post pics as soon as they arrive!

God, I did this too and the nice white stitching turned brown. I noticed it happen to about half of one shoe and by then it was too late. I had to complete the brown thread look on both shoes. I was so sad.
