    Lovin' the "rare" cordovan colors being displayed here recently. Does the Ravello and Whiskey darken over age?

    I've seen #8 and Cigar do the opposite and lighten with wear and sunlight exposure.

    The roys look terrific now, and they'll look better when the sole gets a bit beat up.

    I'd like to see more pics as well.

    I think ravello should get darker the way whiskey does. It's really the dye of cigar and #8 that fades and it seems like the light cordovans get darker.

    I just ordered a pair of ravello plain toes today so we'll see what happens. I'm excited to finally get the one color of shell that is missing from my collection!

    Where from? I haven't seen this makeup before, although the LS Jumpers are a similar configuration (Trubalance last, all eyelets). Still prefer the Jumpers though, can't wait till they're ready!

    they are alden seconds so i do not know where they are from.

    Most probably the older ones were #8 when new. They have faded to that color.
