    If those are a sneak peak of the Balmoral boots I've been whining to them about over the last 3 months, I am fired up.
    Those are rad.

    Is this the burgundy with brown suede? If yes, is there a reason you didn't go with dark brown calf with dark brown suede instead?

    I didn't want to. Why do you ask? I would have gone with EG for that combo. I wanted to try a MTO pair for A LOT less than any of the big boys.

    It's too bad their cordovan shoes are on very ordinary lasts...

    Try one of the wider lasts. email Pepe for recommendations. Definitely not those super narrow lasts for sure.

    I am on the same boat for C&J 358 last (hg of 348) and JL 7000/8000, 9.5E slightly too long/loose at heel and 9E too narrow. Workable w/ 9E if its not a captoe.

    I posted pics earlier in the thread, check them for cuero color

    Ravello also has a bunch of shades so hard to compare

    umm . . . wouldn't that be because the only cordovan shoes they offer are in very traditional styles? Longwings? Split-toe blucher? Tassel loafers? And, for what it's worth, the longwings and plaintoe appear sleeker than Alden or AE.

    I think your complaint is more that they need to introduce some more styles in cordovan, which would be nice. As it is, I'm currently eyeing the longwings as a potential kop.
