good looking chukka. I completely agree with your logic on it

What were the two pair from J. Gilbert? I guess I should stop by their shop; I live in Seattle.
Worth trying for those Ravello's on eBay, then? I admit, they do look dark to me, but I haven't seen any Ravello in person.
for comparison sake here is a recent pic of my Ravello Chukkas
For me, a 11D Barrie fits me very, very well. I do have to mention that my left foot is a great deal wider than my right (this causes me major fit issues).
11.5D in Grant would have worked out very well for me if it was not for my left foot (waaaay to tight). 11.5D in Grant fit my right foot perfect.
I ended up with 11.5E.
I will say however, the #8 4060's have been garnering tons of compliments.
I had these at one point, but sold them. I'd say they'd be pretty great in a place that gets a lot of snow and rain. The kudu leather is pretty heavily oiled an the sole is very comfy.
