    I was wondering how long it would take for the ravello kirkwood info to drop on the thread. Ordered mine earlier this morning. Bet their phones are ringing now.

    Do the ravello Kirkwoods at Unionmade have a light or dark welt?

    I'm still debating on whether to keep my ravello chukkas or not. If anyone wants an unworn (un-tried on, in fact) pair sized 9.5E at retail, let me know.

    I know the reasons why I like cordovan. The smell, the no polish shine that is unmistakably shell cordovan, the way it creases and the prestige/exclusivity.

    I also was wondering about all the ravello that has been popping up. Thought there was supposed to be a prolonged shortage, but seems to have only lasted a few months. I wonder if its safe to start ordering out-of-stock ravello models from TSM without having to wait 2 years.

    Edit: Popa Doble, Congrats on the Maiden Voyage. I had been waiting to see you bust em out!

    I neglected to mention this earlier:

    NewYorkRanger, your pictures are always outstanding, both in content and composition.

    On a very personal note, serious kudos to Mr. Chorizo for this PSA. :fistbump:

    If one is fortunate enough to procure enough pairs, this distinct and delightful aroma meets the owner each morning in the master closet.

    Perhaps the shortage goes to models not currently in production? Who knows ...
