You really should have grabbed them. When you are on the fence for this type of makeup, always keep in mind the secondary market is very strong at the moment.

P.S. @Bobbo316, Buck Fon Jovi!

Looks like Christmas in August around here - fresh Tankers & Longwings abound!

I too received a package today - Alden DC Ravello LWBs. Brown definitely dominates in this batch of Ravello, red tones in repose. iPhone pics below, indoors to shade to sun, comparing the new Ravello with my 4 year old Cigars:

(Can you tell which is which in this shot?)

This is helpful, thanks. I should probably go 12.5C or maybe even 12.5B in a Grant boot in that case. I'd rather err on the side of caution and go with 12.5C and wear some thicker socks rather than get something that's too tight. Thanks!

Seems like pre-orders are the only way for the most part. I have B and C width Barrie shoes, but all took months or years of waiting.

I hear ya man. I''m a Broncos fan but I still respect the home town team. I think most here wish Kelly was healthy enough and had enough time to run the team.

Really put together on this one, RTP. May be my favorite Whiskeys. Really shows off the details of the short wing nicely. Congratulations, Sir, wear in the best of health!
