    I bought those shoes and my heel slippage went away after two full days (non-consecutive) of wearing to work. BTW I also thought the dovetail finishing was subpar on mine as well although not as bad as yours. FWIW I can see ours are creasing the same so far. I really LOVE these shoes and have had lots of compliments on them. :slayer:

    Zippy, I think we were both referring to Tom Park at Leathersoul. Trying to be funny by turning it into Tommy P. :D

    Ravello or cigar please. I have a whiskey lwb already and I want the rainbow. I wonder if there's a way to get navy cordovan. Rider had it before I think. A grant shortwing in navy with double natural sole? A guy can dream...

    Still trying to convince myself.
    I think if they had a lighter color sole/welt I'd have them by now.


    Sorry, I was wondering who you were talking about.

    I'd go for a Ravello wingtip - I don't trust Cigar. Some look great other batches look...

    Absolutely correct - don't know what I was thinking. I have a pair of the Ravello SW boots from Epaulet! Oh well, time to get back to designing rockets I guess!

    The navy cordovan was incredibly ugly. the navy fades into this nasty baby blue shade.
