    Well, I just opened these up and could not be happier.....the fit is great and I love the color.....pleasantly surprised with the light edge trim.

    They apparently have been tried on before as there is some slight creasing, but not going complain as they appear to be flawless otherwise after a quick inspection.

    If anyone is interested in an 11d cigar tassel, please send a PM as I will likely be sending the pair I recently got from Harrison, Ltd back......the 11.5 ravellos are a much better fit.

    Dang!!! I would be happy with those too!!! I am not surprised that they are creased just based upon how long they were at Pelle Line. They will be creased much more within 15 seconds of being outside.

    I was sad that the pair I picked up were too big for me!!! Darn the person who labeled a 10.5E as a 10.5 Medium. Got my hopes up soo high.

    Thanks!

    It is frustrating how inconsistent sizing can be, particularly on the special make ups.

    I tried on an 11 and 11.5 in #8 shell at a local retailer and the 11 was definitely the better fit..

    Yet, I can hardly get 11 cigars on and the 11.5 ravellos fit perfectly.

    The cigars look great, with a rich dark color and light edge, if anyone is looking for some.

    Despite my hesitation, I think I might become a tassel guy after these!

    Does anyone know of any boot makeups that are the following:

    non-black
    calfskin or cordovan or chromexcel
    plain toe or captoe
    brass hooks and/or eyelets
    commando sole

    I really like the chromexcel Viberg service boots, but can't see spending $700+ on non-cordovan boots.

    Do you have the 4060HC with the hooks and commando or the 4060 with double leather?

    Happy hump day gents. As a heads up, I listed some new cigar LWBs in the classifieds section. They are in a size 7.5d in the Barrie last. Check out my signature for a direct link. Thanks!

    That would be a pricey way to see if the 7.5 Barrie is indeed a better for it for me, but quite tempting!
