Given that I'm a size 10 I felt very fortunate. We'll see what happens when they arrive.

Wow good score, I honestly don't understand TSM I called early and first thing I asked was about LWB's in any rare color and was told none were available,size 10 also.

That is interesting. Joe told me I got the last pair of 10s and went out of his way to check if anything else was lurking. I probably would've bought them even though I've had a pair before and never wore them because I found them too light. Whiskey always calls to me. Glad you scored them!

I agree, Seven. For me, it is the fact that the Tremont is lower profile. The Tremont is a nice looking last, howerver. I am selling my whiskey short wings on the bay. I really wish I could have worn these.

I spent time yesterday afternoon and about 2 hours this morning calling around to various Alden retailers hoping I might get lucky and find a pair of ravello lwb's. of course no luck. Around noon today I left for the day to take my son to a lacrosse event at Haverford College. While there I ran across the street to Sherman Bros. Figuring I would never find any ravellos, I decided to purchase a pair of 2145 color 8 medallion cap toes I have been wanting. I was totally happy with my purchase. Then I get home, log on to SF and see while I was out all day everyone was scoring big at TSM. Cruel irony. I'm a 10 D Barrie. I'm going to call first thing Monday to see if there is anything in 10.5. A ravello NST would be awesome.

TSM will not ship to the Great White North anymore.

I believe we discussed this last year.

It's pretty sad really.

do the costs of a proxy from the US into canada outweigh the savings?

Congrats to all of you on your scores! I called -- and actually managed to get through -- and they had some NSTs that would've worked size-wise in the whole rare rainbow. I just couldn't pull the trigger as the colors I actually need are black and #8. I'm sure I'll kick myself over this later.

did you happen to inquire about whether these are/were just shoes, or boots, in the NST? still bummed about the NST ravello boots I sent back to them awhile back do to some marbling I couldnt live with.. wonder if they got a 'better' batch..

 

thanks!
