Cordovan is not for the faint of heart.

I love them all, but if forced to choose just one, I would go with color 8.  nod[1].gif  Ravello would be next.

I am an engineer, so I would come up with Use Cases for each (outfit's they go well with) and pick the one that goes with more of your wardrobe. But if I had to go straight up just off of looks, I prefer the Ravellos. Though its hard to go wrong with either. Happy hunting!

I know Alden DC just had a run of the Ravello LWBs start and they should be done in the August to September time frame. I am anxiously awaiting mine. But depending upon your size, they may still have some from their previous runs. I know Frans Boone has a pair in Cigar in 10.5D on the Barrie. I am not sure of anywhere else off the top of my head.

Shell cordovan leather should not make sizing any more difficult than calfskin leather, unless you only are referencing the no-crease issue. Go to a brick and mortar store and try on some shell shoes. Hang in there.

Cigar gets the nod for versatility.
Ravello gets the nod for uniqueness.
It's a close call, but I'd go cigar.
I own them both

Color #8 is a great starting point.  I think people forget sometimes that the color changes over time.  #8 is a rich color that has more depth than cigar.  Though I'd say ravello is more vibrant than either.  Ravello and to a lesser extent cigar gets more attention because its more difficult to obtain.  Having said that, go with what pleases you.

I have the cigar LWB and given the choice between the two, would still go with cigar. I like ravello, but I don't think I would have the occasion to wear them very often, so they're not on the top of my wish list.

I believe ravello is more difficult to find, so if you are on the fence in terms of personal preference and you would get equal use from either, I'd go with ravello. You could pick up a cigar later.

I definitely get more wear out of my cigar LWBs... still waiting for my whiskey LWBs...
