but changed to ravello NSTs which arrived from TSM this am!!!!
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I actually asked Ed at TSM that exact question almost verbatum, and didnt get a real answer...
He basically said "There weren't that many..."
I also wondered if they were new old stock (seconds).
My God, you guys have seriously brought it today with the King LWBs, the absoluely gorgeous ravello NST, king cap toe boots, etc... there is some serious game possessed by this thread, esp when you throw in the watch collections!
Today I went with what has become one of my favorite go-to casual shoes, Snuff LWBs + J Crew argyles. (However, I am itching to wear some shell this weekend... this thread is inspiring!)
Holy cow, just got off the phone with Joe in Norwalk (TSM). Just snagged the last Ravello NST!! Joe says there is a Whiskey PTB in 10.5D, Whiskey NST in 10E (barrie), and a cigar cap toe bal 10.5D (hampton). It took every bit of will power not to buy the Cigar also!
Who was it that said buy now and deal with the consequences later? Namor or Bakes? You couldn't have been more correct. I had been on the fence about the RL Lindrick and Gianni for $705 shipped with tax included. I saw AltVol's NST pics and thought, I would much rather have those than the Lindrick/Gianni (I would wear them much more often). Called Joe and what do ya know... $460 shipped and should arrive by next weekend. What a deal!
I finally found them Uncle! Pics to come later...
ps Thank you AltVol for the your timely, inspiring pics!! DonL, you are an inspiration also with those same shells!
