yeah, seems like a reasonable rationale/investment.

Along the lines of today's chattering about Horween's quality control and the lack of Ravello, see below from Need Supply.

It must be a very talented calf that is able to produce Horween shell cordovan...

I like those a LOT. Tassel loafers always seem a little effeminate / elf like to me.

These are from a couple of years ago but they are indeed a red/brown and I love it. Ravello has a character and color that is both modern and aged. I find Alden DC does a lot of the same makeups over the years.

Wear in good health! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

not true - I inquired with Horween, and received a response that all of their cordovan shell is a byproduct of the food industry -

indeed, this was brought to light the page before this.
in any event, that still means they are not killed for the purpose of the hide; the hide is the byproduct of another industry.

is horween public btw, as in, in the market?
