Impressive collection of footwear over past dozen pages ... the pride of ownership is so clearly demonstrated with the use of shoe trees, edge-dressing and generous application of the mac-method.

Is it fair to conclude that shell has the potential to age much more gracefully than calf ... perhaps I've just become biased to shell?

I think that's more of a fact than a bias.   Preference is bias... but longevity, durability, and graceful ageing are the main reasons for why shell is so prized.

I was just speaking with Alden DC. Apparently they have just been informed that an order they had of Ravello Longwing's on the Barrie has gone into production and should be ready in ~4 months. None in my size off-the-bat unfortunately, but I'm now in place #2 on a 12.5D...

If this is true, then I have high hopes that Epaulet's Ravello Brixton should be done very soon smile.gif
