Not sure how legit the page is, but it provides what seems to be accurate bio's of the shell colors.

Anyway to answer your question, #4 has half the amount of dye that #8 has, and is therefore a lighter color.

What the hell is that object in the picture under the Whiskey description? Looks very phallic...

And the site also says that navy is so rare, most people have ever seen it or know of it's existence. Maybe this is an old post? Navy seems to be pretty abundant lately from other shoemakers.

not the place to post that kind of project. hopefully the mods will remove

sometimes ravello appears very red, almost ruby, and on other shoes, it appears very tan, almost like cognac/whiskey, is that just a difference from batch to batch, or does it start out as tan and over time darkens to red? just a bit confused, because I like the red version, but not the light tan version.

Bureau still has a few things on sale...not sure about duties and VAT reduction. Has anyone ordered something from them before? How did it workout? I tried pricing something last night but VAT never came out of the final price.

It varies batch to batch... In my experience ravello is the rare color that varies the most. I've seen very red pairs, medium brown with reddidsh tints (my favorite), "dark whiskey" pairs and pairs that look more orange than anything else

This seems like a good starting price and decent BIN, but not too great of an eBay ad:

Dammit. There's a couple of things I'd love to get but they're a size too small. Great prices.

the ravello colors are all over the place. I prefer the red ravello, but im glad I have different shades.

Is my web browser broken?  Or did the seller post one picture of just the box?

post #54943 of 91834
Maybe he's just selling the box. That may be the next step in the mania: Shoe Box for Rare, Ravello Shell Cordovan Short Wings . BIN $745.

Ha ha.

Sometimes you feel pretty silly after you get the answer. That makes perfect sense.

I share your thoughts on the image. That's a strange looking item.
