    It seems pretty clear that Whiskey turns into Ravello over time. Question is, what does Ravello turn into over time?

    This is a bit simplistic - let's study this classic set of photos

    The whiskey and ravello in this collection look very different and will likely not converge much.

    I think it is all where the shoes start. The "dark" ravello (my favorite) develops a great patina with brown and red tones. I don't know if it gets "darker" but the variation within the shoe increases. Let's see where this lighter ravello goes.

    The Epaulet Ravello Brixton boot from last year. They were supposed to be ready by end of 2011 or early 2012, but apparently Ravello shell has been in short supply lately, and the boot won't be ready to ship until later this year. I'm sure it will be worth the wait, especially since I'm already paid in full and the price was a lot less than current Ravello offerings.

    Nice! I have a pair of the Leffot x Alden Day Trippers reserved for their next order in fall/winter, but as much as I want them right! nao! I'm good if their delivery slips to next year. Patience is a virtue or something, right? I need to convince myself not to buy a pair of black Indys in the meantime...

    Will this crease wear out? Shoemart gave me a $117 discount because of it once I brought it to their attention.

    "A lot less?" ... by how much?


    I don't think that will happen. I ordered my Ravello day trippers last night, and only bought them on the condition they'd be here this Fall, which he assured me. He said he doesn't know the exact day, but definitely said it will not slip to next year.

    That's great if they are delivered on time. I don't mind, either way.

    I ordered the ravello day trippers, which are on the Grant last, in my true size. They are right in the middle of the sizing chart, making it a tough choice, but I figure I can just wear thicker socks if they are slightly roomy. Much better to go that route if you are unsure like I was.
