Anyone hear anything about the Leffot Ravello LWB order? I was told "Spring" arrival which probably could mean anything between now and June...Anyone else get in on that one? Here's Mac's version:

I wear mine with Nudie Slim Jim and I think they work well together.

Something with a slight taper, like a Samurai 710, should look fine, but I don't think the Indys would work well with significantly tapered jeans like the N&F Weird Guy.

Forgive the plebe/small question here.... I am considering a couple pair on the Shoemart irregular emailing and wasn't 100% about something. When it refers to the color as "shell"....I imagine it means cordovan leather? I am unsure as to some of the pricing differences and imagine it would be a result of lasts, popularity, leather quality/expense? But, "shell" undoubtably refers to cordovan, correct? I also noticed that "color 8" is also more expensive....

Yes, you're correct. From the Shoemart 2nds I've seen, #8 and black are the only shells available. These 2 would be the easiest to find of all shells.

shell is shell cordovan

#8 is a color of shell cordovan so yes its more expensive.

the price difference is due to the shoe being shell cordovan or calf.

welcome to the thread

I've seen Ravello, Whiskey, and Cigar shell on the Shoemart Alden 2nd emails. Taking into consideration that i've only been onthe email list for 3 months i'd say you may have some sucess at picking up some of the rare colors if you want them.

there was a pair of whiskey LHS in my size sitting on the 2nds list for at least a month or so. I've seen all the colors on that list, there were even 2 #4's a few months ago. I doubt those will ever be seen again though.

only that she was gathering names to put an order in. no idea if shes still getting names or if the order is through yet. someone should call ... not it

I own a pair of whiskey shell LHS purchased as seconds from Shoemart, and I've seen another pair in 8.5 or 9 available recently, so they do crop up from time to time. I can't say I've seen much cigar or ravello on the seconds list, though it must happen.

I've seen cigar, whiskey, and ravello in my short time (2 months) on the seconds list. Just ordered a pair of whiskey plain toe boots from the seconds list today, I hope they work out.
