    I saw a pair of Ravello chukkas at Alden of SF with a dime sized spot on the toe where the dye didn't take. The spot was much lighter than Whiskey. I brought this to the attention of the salesman Robert - the tall fellow who used to be a cobbler - and he said they were OK selling it as a first quality shoe. I thanked him for his time and passed on the pair. He said he was sure someone would buy it.

    Leffot says they're the perfect winter boot. I think a week of NYC winter would destroy these

    With all due respect to Steven - while these are wonderful boots (I own a pair from the first order last year), they are like ice skates when it gets cold/wet.

    From experience, they dont immediately post their inventory to the blog. It usually takes about a week. Stevo said it allowed their regular clients/walk-ins a chance to place their orders. This is especially true with rare shell colors. Usually by the time its posted online, its either sold out and/or sizing is limited

    I think you guys are getting me mixed up with someone else. The creased lady calf boots that were posted by another member weren't mine. I think it was NAMOR who asked a question re: LS's return policy, which I answered, as I had recently purchased a different pair of calf boots from LS (Pitt Boots) and had asked Bryan of LSBH about their return policy, which was a question he was slightly rude in responding to.

    Anyway, I wouldn't try to return shoes that were even slightly creased up, and do agree that the lady calf boots that were posted shouldn't be on the table for return. :satisfied:

    On a different note, I really wish that there were more (actually, any) Alden's posted on B&S in my size. I always see such great deals and end up disappointed since they're usually larger than my shoe size (9.5). Saw some worn-once Alden x J. Crew Color 8 captoes going for a great price, but unfortunately, a size too large.
