    Cigar, Ravello, and Whiskey LWB. All recently manufactured and acquired. Hopefully this will be a good comparison of the recent rare shell tones.

    Oh sh*t! Thats how it's done. Nice to see them all new and side by side.

    Edit: I know i'm in the minority but I LOVE that dark welt and edgetrim on the ravello.

    That is great to hear. I love the waterloc sole and have passed on shoes in the past because it was not offered. It is good to know I can buy a shoe and have it changed over to a waterloc. Is pricing the same for it or is it a bitmore ? Thanks.

    I don't think the dark welt & edge trim would work well with the whiskey, but I agree that it's nice with the ravello. Then again, I think (not sure, since I haven't seen them in person) I'm in the camp that might prefer the cigar with a dark brown welt & edge trim.

    ^ the dark edge trim really transforms the ravello into a dressier shoe, and in my PTB, i appreciate that since i can wear it with suits as well as casual attire.

    I think that is why I like it, although I believe the ravello LWB from AoC has a crepe sole, which I'm not sold on. Where did you get ravello PTBs, by the way?

    I tried googling red cushion crepe but could not find anything. Can someone provide picture of such a sole?

    Yeah, I've followed up with them twice now to confirm a cancellation, and have only received the automatic reply "We’ve received your email, and will reply to you within 1 business day."
