Also J. Gilbert has a color 8 NST boot on the Plaza, with commando sole. They also have the blucher too

If you have preference towards one last over another though this may be problematic.

Just FYI: Citishoes calls whiskey shell "Brandy shell." I've inquired of that specifically.

Kathy at Alden DC is great. I recently acquired from her a pair of Ravello captoes (perf tip) with medallion toe, on the Plaza last, with double leather soles. It is a stunning shoe. nod[1].gif

Yeah...absolutely gorgeous boots. I'm waiting for when Leffot receives the second run of them. Either this month or next, hopefully. Got on the order list last October.

Man... I'm going crazy looking for Ravello plain toe boots or cap toe boots. I don't even need them in the next year, I'm just looking for someone who would be put me on the pre-order list so I feel like there's some sort of progress being made. Leffot said that they won't take more pre-orders as they don't know when more Ravello shells are being made - does anyone know other pre-order etc going on?

I've apparently got a nasty completionist streak that these shoes just wake up in me.

Not sure where you got that estimated delivery date, I have been on that list since February and last I heard was mid to late 2013, if that.

I think the window may have closed, we're just waiting right now for Alden to confirm if it will get made.

I'm pretty sure the Thor only has a punch cap toe and no other broguing as well.  It should appear exactly as in my avatar, unless Alden deviates from the design submitted.

Even if the Thor boot preorder with Alden DC is closed, you may be able to buy a pair once the shoes are delivered if one of the preorder-ers doesn't complete the purchase or if Alden DC orders extra pairs of the boot for the store (that's how I got my whiskey Indy boots)
