    Is this normal/acceptable with Alden or is my ocd kicking in proper? Seems to skip two holes leaving a bit of looseness therein.

    i'd say something like that is pretty normal with Alden QC. Alden quality is great, their Quality Control is far less than great.

    Epaulet also did a ravello semi-brogued captoe pre-order this February. But that's merely 10 months.

    I'm wondering if it'll be more liable to break since its not in there tight. Not sure if I should keep or exchange for something that small.

    I'm glad some of you were able to pick up some ravello LWBs.

    I just received a new pair - black unlined LHS. I had been reconsidering if I should keep these or trade them in for a second pair of color 8 LHS, which are my absolute favorite shells and are used at least once a week. But now that I have them in hand the dark stitching makes me think these black LHS are distinct enough and will look great with gray trousers.

    And my version of the shell rainbow:
    whiskey LWB, ravello LHS, cigar LWB, color 8 LWB, black LHS

    Lucy in the Sky with Shell. Here are a few of my recent acquisitions. Thinking about taking up golf and skiing - they may be cheaper.

    ^^^

    are those LWB a lighter cigar or a darker ravello?

    Both the PTB and the Shortwings are Ravello. I am much fonder of the shortwing than I am of the LWB.

    They will darken over time. I have a Ravello wallet that is now quite dark--not cigar but very dark for ravello.

    if wherever you bought them from will let you exchange, and they have them in your size, why not?
