    2013 might not be an exaggeration. Look at Epaulet - they did a pre-order for Ravello WT boots. I paid for mine Dec 24, 2010. I believe the order was submitted in Jan '11.

    Word is that Alden just got the Ravello shell and we *may* get the boots by the end of 2011. The exotic shell colors are getting harder and harder to come by...

    Hi, CHRK33,

    Just spotted your post. Is it too late to get in on these whiskey wing tip boots?

    Thanks

    ^ that's a great color, especially for fall.

    CHRK33, any updates on the plaza sw boot?

    Namor, thanks for reminding me. I will check in with Mike and let you know. He was just waiting confirmation from the Alden rep regarding our specs. I am chomping at the bit as well.

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

    Two individuals had to opt out of the Ravello cap toe preorder. There are slots open for that design in a 10E and a 10.5D. Any takers?

    The Ravello cap toe is on the Barrie? I might be interested in the 10.5D if it's still available. What's the pricing? I take it from this thread that they could take at least a year for delivery?

    Thanks.

    Should come in just over US $700 and be ready around summer, though I'm not 100% sure of the timing.

    I'm not going to go with that 10.5D that I asked about. Not quite sure it's right for me, so I'll wait. I'm sure you'll get a taker.

    I am, however, generally very interested in this MTO thread and will look to get in on a future order. Looking forward to getting a look at that spread sheet. I think the email I sent by PM should work. You just have to plug it into the share window in Google docs.
