Wish I was able to get in on that Ravello. Damn.

How is the finishing on Alden's calf shoes? And which colors do people find represent the brand's best character? I've been lurking in this thread for a while, but pretty much only see pictures of shell, CXL, and suede.

Nice Ravellos today gents.  One of my favorite make-ups, and a pair that gets a lot of wear in my rotation.

In keeping with recent Leathersoul hate: I designed those for a contest, came in "second" (or was it third?) and they made them anyway. They never told me they were making them (winner was the scotch grain wingtip boot with brass eyes and commando, who got his pair for free) - I found out after the boot was released. They did let me know I didn't win, hehe. I was pissed. Oh well. I see them up for sale on ebay and know I had something to do with a true Alden MTO. It is too bad they are out of the Alden game, but I guess really rich people from Honolulu and LA don't roll much with Alden anymore.

Any and all info is appreciated.

Go Epaulet and do not look back. Seriously.

Is there such a thing as Ravello Wax. Wondering what to use on the Ravello, do not want to darken the cordovan. This batch is really nice, not too dark, not too light.nod[1].gif

I'm actually surprised Alden doesn't sell this style of boot as a regular offering. They'd make a killing the same way they are with the Indy boot. Plus, this boot could compete with the Viberg service boot.

I have no beef with LSH since I've never ordered from them before. What's their deal anyway? Are they slowly going out of business, or did they just stop with the MTO's?

I gotta say again that all the new DC Ravello looks amazing, let's hope this is just a preview of more to come.

Thank you Gentlemen.  I was very anxious to see what shade came in the box.  Needless to say, I'm pretty pleased.  Will be getting these off their maiden voyage soon.  

 

This is my 3rd pre-order delivered this year.  I'm waiting for another one from TSM and I think I'm done for a looong time.  My last pre-order is a Ravello NST which Joe confirmed went into production and is supposed to get delivered late Fall (I'm hoping its a similar shade). When I got into the lists, I didn't realize they could all get delivered in the same year.  I thought I'd be lucky getting 2.  It's a bit more than what planned to spend for the year but hey, buy it and think later, right.  

 

Cheers!

I would be interested to know as well, last I heard the NST boot was going to be the next ravello style out of TSM but it wasnt a done deal. If it did get confirmed I believe I am high enough on the list to get a pair. I cant imagine they confirmed an order at less than 24 pairs.
