I believe I preorderd on 3/20/13. On 10/3/13 the order status went to "new" (which I'm guessing is when Alden accepts the order?). Then yesterday they finally shipped. Feel very fortunate to not have waited longer. Just hoping they don't have major defects. Would be a bummer to have to send them back.
Wow, that's a really good turnaround time considering how scarce ravello has been. Definitely keep us posted when you receive them -- I'm curious what shade of ravello will turn up.
