What color does TSM list those as on the email? It's hard to tell on my computer but they look either like navy CXL or dark brown CXL (my colorblindness isn't helping either). Nothing like that showed up on mine. Whatever the color, I like the look of those... and I am a fan of the crepe sole. I would happily wear those with chinos, denim, cords, moleskin...

impulse buy from Unionmade
 

Could it be that you bought the wrong size?  I would think that you could not fit your foot in to them with a tongue pad and thick socks had you bought the correct size.

 

(I am asking, not telling.)

 

I don't like the round toe of the copley for Tassels either, but I think it's completely because I am accustom to seeing that style on the aberdeen.

I have wanted a pair and drooled over uncle macs' and sevenfoldtieguy's forever.



Well done, fine sir.
This is probably my favorite ravello model.

Definitely Navy CXL.  TSM Carried these but not on the crepe sole so not sure whose original makeup this is but looks like a great casual shoe

Exactly why I didn't get the full strap cigars. I like the lhs much more. They will be mine someday.

I like both models. Perhaps it is just me, but I see the LHS and full-strap serving two completely different functions, with the LHS being considerably more casual given its last and very round toe.

I'll add my voice to the chorus - while I've seen many incredible ravello models posted, this one is the winner in my book.

I know! I have almost bought them no less than 15 different times. I keep hoping they will move to the sale section. I also really want these

How do you get them to look almost two-toned? Thanks I am a newbie, sorry to sound that way.

post #64559 of 87563

Definitely Navy CXL.  That makeup looks great, and is probably comfortable as all getout!

 

I have a pair of Navy CXL boots, and the color is a really nice, deep navy.  It does seem to lighten slightly over time as well.

Agreed... I have a pair of cigar LHS that I am mothballing basically until spring. I wore it with chinos and shorts, and often sockless. Yet I plan on wearing my color 8 full straps year round with chinos, wool pants, and suits. I continue to wear them in the fall. The dark edge sole helps. The cigar full straps would likely be improved if they had a dark sole (similar to the RL Marlow penny loafers).
