If a retailer has a no-crease policy, there is no way they would take them back. And even for the retailers that do not have a no-crease policy, this seems like quite a stretch (a full 3 hours of walking).

nephew,
maybe i am a bad example, but i have returned shoes that did not fit properly for a full refund

Advice on brushing out water spots? Mine don't go away even with 15-20 minutes with a horsehair brush. Do you use something different?

Went home for lunch to walk the dog today and was greeted by a leathersoul box on my porch. Finally got the chocolate suede tankers that I reserved so long ago I forgot. Contrast stitching on them really pops. The pics on the site are pretty accurate, except the color is a rich brown, not so gray-ish. These are already high on my list, second only to my whiskey indy.

Try saphir reno, brushing, then a damp cloth. Then brush and buff with a dry cloth. It'll come out.

I talked to Ed at Shoemart and he said Ravello Chukkas will come in about 6 to 8 weeks from now. He said the order was placed a year ago!

The Shoe Mart had ravello chukkas in stock a few months ago as well ...

The fact that it was placed a year ago is interesting - I always wondered how Alden priorities "stock" rare cordovan shoes like chukkas and longwings versus the more special orders... There have been ravello boot preorders that have been pending for years that have not yet been filled, but other retailers seem to have stocked, sold out, reordered, and restocked longwings, chukkas and PTBs.

^You are correct. I pre ordered Ravello Brixtons probably over 1.5years ago with no avail date. Shoemart has to be one of the biggest clients so they may get first dibs. I'm getting them this time around!

In addition, try the spoon trick. I found that it worked better than brushing alone on welts on my PTB's. Search this thread for "spoon" for a lot more details on how to do it.
