    I agee. Everything ravello should be. Mac had also turned me on to the versatility and classic understated styling of the PTB. That will definitely be my next acquisition - either ravello or whiskey, but ptb all the way.

    get a boot. Their is nothing more awesome than a sheet of ravello cordovan wrapped around your ankle.

    Argentino, I'm in the same boat as you, but agree with Namors sentiments as well.
    As a solution, does anyone offer a shell plain toe boot, in a color other than #8 and other than the LS Pitt Boot which is long gone?

    on a somewhat related note: if presented with the choice of #4, Ravello or cigar for a wingtip boot what would people go for?

    Sort of an off-topic, a lot of you seem to be using good cameras. Can you link what you guys are using? I haven't owned a dedicated digital camera in years. My iPhone photos are good but not great.

    The added cost really offsets the aesthetic value. I don't think I can justify it.

    Isn't that the truth. He has some unique "N/A in the US" models that are stunning. With that said, namor you are certainly no slouch in the Alden dept!

    I've been wanting to place a preorder for the Leffot Day Trippers but that single flex sole is making me think they will be uncomfortable :(
    I have the epaulet brixtons in ravello, and that double leather sole is so damn comfortable..

    Yes- Blackbird has their Creamery Boot in Black - which I have and it is quickly becoming my go-to boot- It dresses up really well and yet looks awesome with jeans...very versatile- hard to go wrong with black. The fit and stability of a boot is so much more appealing to me than a shoe...:
