@rydenfan

This was the stock image Leffot ran on their blog/tumbler in mid June I think. It was in regards to the pre order for the Cigar Indy and Ravello Day Tripper.



Sorry to stir things up:/

Certainly you are not stirring anything up. I am on the mail order list and had 0 knowledge of the releases. If it had not been for this thread I likely would not have known. LS however would only sell their exotics to a preferred customer list.

@bespoken pa

I only found out because of Leffot's cryptic Instagram posting of my previous photo and a line about things "Knocking" and answering the call. It did not blatantly mention a pre order. I emailed Che, none the less, and there was a spot available in my size. Once again it was timing and a bit of luck.

I own another Leffot make up, but am no where near preferred. I just followed the rules laid out here. If you see an opportunity for rare shell...seize it.

I had a chance to order Leffot's Cigar Indy but went for Ravello captoe boots from DC instead.

Congrats to all who are getting those.

Good luck indeed! Congrats on the pick up, i was fortunate to get in on the DC make up as well. Can't wait for my first ravello high boot.

They love helping people zero-in on their sizing for all of Alden's lasts.

 

Make sure you ask for Ralph.

Thanks BP! It will be my first Ravello boot as well. Hopefully we will hear from Mrs.K soon.

I was told they may (estimate) be about 10 weeks out.  This was last week.  It will be interesting to compare them to the Leffot Daytrippers when they come out.

I believe Ralph is only there one day per week. I think it may be Mondays.

Hmm, thanks for the scoop. About 2 weeks ago I heard production has started. I was just thinking the same thing about comparing these to Leffot Daytrippers. Commando sole will be one difference but I'm sold on Commando long time ago smile.gif

Hopefully my cigar chukka and LWB from them don't arrive at the same time as my first baby lol. Otherwise I have to plan on mission of sneaking these in the house during the night.

Can't tell if you are being serious or not. But in all of my experience I found Ralph to be the single biggest d$Ck and most unhelpful person ever. Anthony on the other hand is awesome.

Seems like lots of rare shell in production at the moment. Congrats to everyone who has and who will be snagging something.

 

I am going be throwing some emails out today to see if I can get on lists for Ravello LWB and Whiskey PTB.

I think the 10 weeks was very off the cuff and so I would not put too much stock in it. But it shouldn't take TOO much longer in theory. They were very happy with the LWB ravello color and were hopeful that the boots would be the same shade.

Yes, there was one very expensive week last month.

Yep, I should have figured if you're in on the pre-order they would have offered a B width smile.gif

I'm not upset about missing out on this one, I have enough pre-orders I'm still waiting on, but Leffot is kind of a pain in the ass, at least in my limited experience with them. I've been trying to buy there for years and have emailed and called asking if I could get in on some of their regular makeups and reserve my size (being a B width, I can't order from their regular stock since they only carry D and E widths), and every time they would give me a different excuse. Sometimes they would say that I couldn't order my size outside of their regular stock, sometimes they would say they weren't taking any pre-orders (this was before they rolled out their new pre-order system), and sometimes they would say they have NO intentions of re-ordering a style (navy suede LWB), only to order it and not allow me to reserve my size because they said they were only ordering D widths. Maybe one of these days I'll get lucky with them.

In other news, anyone know of any shops that will be offering a whiskey PTB soon? I've had my name on a list with DC and SF, but neither of them have given me any concrete plans I when they will re-order that style.
