thats interesting, and the pics don't lie, you're right..

sorry for the bad ipad pics.

The blue suedes left blisters for a while until they were thoroughly broken in - now that they are stretched they are incredibly comfortable. You will enjoy them for sure.

Mahogany looks like one of the many shades we now accept as ravello. all my ravellos have different shades of brown.

Very true. Even within the same batch, there are variations in the Ravello shade.
post #62915 of 96694
I've owned ravello that ranged from more or less brown to light reddish orange. The color 4 I've seen posted here has similar variance.

Felt the Leather Soul pair fit a little narrower as well. Sold it but maybe I should have kept and got the stretch. But length wise I think it's close, just a much neater welt compared to the longwings (which run the biggest)

Also from Leathersoul today, sun almost gone so it's a bit blurry. Plaza deserves all the praise it gets here daily, not sure what took so long for me to get a pair

WOW....that Gerstner box is pretty awesome!

I just received a very cool birthday gift from one of my friends:

He made me this!

http://touch.artofmanliness.com/artofmanliness/#!/entry/how-to-make-a-nifty-shoe-shine-box,502ecfb9444f6789471f3248



It's pretty genius in the fact you can get a good shine and some down force from the dowel rods that are used...like this:



That's probably the most thoughtful gift I've received in a long time. He knows I'm a shoe nut and his wife said he's just enabling me. I opted for a pecan stain.

What do you guys think?

Got mine last week. It's a beast but I love it. Thanks again for the PSA.

Mine is the "12 Repair Kit" in Walnut. 

That is an awesome addition to a quality shoe collection.
