Thanks Mdubs!  I really like Whiskey shell, wasn't a fan at first but has really grown on me.  My dream Alden would be wingtip boots in whiskey on waterlocks with light sole edging, and why not full brass eyelets while I'm about it!

Have you seen my Crockett and Jones Group MTO that I am trying to put together?

I love Whiskey as well. Living in SoCal makes it very easy for me to pull off Whiskey as well! :-)

I got the same pair (Alden DC Whiskey Wingtips) and have been fighting hard to not buy a second pair right now.

I fussed about missing out on the Ravello CT boot. Seems she might try another order at some point.
Spent 2 hours just talking stuff and bought 2 pairs.

See Ya,

What's the deal with those Ravello CT boots? When will they be delivered? I assume there will be some attrition on this order as well.

I wish the current cigar came in the color of Mac's wingtip boots. Unless it is medium in color, cigar does not appeal to me.

When I spoke to Kathy this Monday she said that those were expected sometime in October. She also mentioned there may be another run of Ravello CT boots. But I think she said the next run may not have a Commando Sole, could be wrong though on that part though.

Is the Commando more or less desirable on this makeup? Personally, I'd prefer double leather on rare shell I think. But Commando on shell makes for great rain boots!

You will get a different answer according to taste.

I figured as much. But I was curious about what others think about the sole for a Ravello boot makeup.

Congratulations! Crossing my fingers and hoping they get a pair in 8D.

For functionality I prefer commando.  For aesthetics I prefer a leather sole.  I just tend to reach for commando boots more, so that would be my ultimate preference.

I prefer commando/other rubber soles on most boot makeups.  I care a little less about it on lighter colored shell because I am less likely to wear the lighter shell in bad weather anyway - and so leather would be fine.  There is a similar buzz on that over on the C&J MTO Central Thread.  This is one of those makeups where I'd be happy either way.  But I still prefer commando by a slight margin.
