would still buy ravello personally. I find it a more versatile color than whiskey, and harder to procure than cigar.

I like Ravello best myself. The price for the Chukkas is $730 per pair. I just bought earlier today a pair of cigar split toe slip ons, and a whiskey full strap slip on. Don't own any of the chukkas, but the options out there so I thought I would ask. All of these are returnable within the typical return rules.
This week alone I ordered monk strap whiskey, #8 NSB on barrie, both of those are irregulars from TSM, cigar split toe slip on, whiskey strap slip on. Plus looking at these Chukka's. Hard decision on what to keep, possibly all of them and also consider the chukkas in whiskey, ravello and cigar. If I had to pick 1 it would be the Ravello. I'm not sure on chukkas, never owned any. On this forum they seem to be popular.
I also scored a whiskey belt!
Just in at Taylor Stitch - http://epauletnewyork.com/products/alden-brown-chromexcel-plain-toe-blucher. And yes, I have way too much time on my hands.
I am currently have my eyes set on a pair of medallion tip bluchers in color 8 or black, aberdeen last (2145 and 2146) but am undecided because Im not sure how they will look.
If friends on the forum would have some pictures (new and aged) for these styles that would be really helpful in me making up my mind. Thanks for helping!
Here are mine (BB version). Love'em!
