    Here's my collection, started about a month and a half ago. Decided to keep the 403s and got the Ravello Plain Toes on a Modified last today from interlockingny. Quick question, as they were seconds, the right one looks a bit lighter than the left. Will they even out in color after wearing? (Guessing it's from a store display so lightened by sun?)

    404, Ravello, 403

    Very nice. Where do you get those? I'm looking for a Cigar Indy boot with commando sole.

    Regarding your mismatched Revello boots - they will both lighten as you wear them. Probably they should trend towards being more similar in color. Even if they don't, I have first quality #8 shoes that differ in color at least that much.

    They look very nice.

    I am looking at also purchasing a Whiskey LWB. I noticed that the style # for the Whiskey LWB from Alden of Carmel (AF21) is different from what appears to be the shoe (and same sole) at The Shoe Mart (97891). Is there a difference between the two, or are they the same shoe but just made specifically for the two stores? Thanks...

    I agree -- if you are interested in the Cigar, I would put down a small deposit. I am on the list for the Cigar PTB, and when I was in last, was told that they were now in production (apparently the factory called to ensure that she had properly requested my size -- a 12.5D -- it must be an odd size for them to produce). In any event, she said to expect them by April.
