    I picked up my birthday present from the post office yesterday....Leathersoul's ravello shortwings. :inlove:

    As if people on this forum didnt already know, the Leathersoul crew are amazing. The salesman who helped me Lawrence Oki is a class act. I mentioned that these were my birthday present while ordering them and as if helping me secure a pair of this great make-up wasnt enough to make my birthday Mr. Okai sent me a card wishing me a happy birthday, a small bag of candy and a pair of socks! It was such a wonderful surprise. :D :D :D

    Here is a group shot of my Ravello to show the different shades between batches.

    Here's a picture for comparison between ravello and whiskey. (the whiskey shortwings are actually FS in B/S)

    very nice, will need a pair of ravello boots in my life one day (after a pair of cigar and #4)

    does anyone know if there exists a #8 cordovan cap toe boot with antique edges on barrie/trubalance/leydon last?

    Wasn't Leather Soul the thread sponsor? It doesn't show that info any longer. I don't even see them as a SF affiliate. Where did you go Tom?

    Thanks! And yes Tres Bein Shop (Sweden) made a #8 cap toe boot with antique edgetrim on the trubalance last (but all E width) during christmas time but they're long gone now.

    @violethour1951: Yeah those are the Leffot daytrippers. :slayer:

    @david3558: Post pics! I want to see them with a little bit of wear on them. It'll help me stop staring at them and put them to use asap.

    I have some stitching that came loose or broke between the side of the upper and the tongue/vamp. (underneath the strap, where I am pointing). It is meant to hold the two parts together, and they are kind of separating (slightly) because of this. Do you think I should get it repaired to prevent it from getting worse? Or hold off unless it becomes a problem?

    Sorry to always have such a negative tinge in all of my posts. On a more positive note, I am thinking of getting a pair of Ravellos to complete my LHS line up!

    may I ask, how did you get a pair? did they call you, or were you quick enough to call them?
