    I'm glad some of you were able to pick up some ravello LWBs.

    I just received a new pair - black unlined LHS. I had been reconsidering if I should keep these or trade them in for a second pair of color 8 LHS, which are my absolute favorite shells and are used at least once a week. But now that I have them in hand the dark stitching makes me think these black LHS are distinct enough and will look great with gray trousers.

    My LHS family: snuff suede, ravello, color 8, black

    And my version of the shell rainbow:
    whiskey LWB, ravello LHS, cigar LWB, color 8 LWB, black LHS

    Lucy in the Sky with Shell. Here are a few of my recent acquisitions. Thinking about taking up golf and skiing - they may be cheaper.

    are those LWB a lighter cigar or a darker ravello?

    Both the PTB and the Shortwings are Ravello. I am much fonder of the shortwing than I am of the LWB.

    They will darken over time. I have a Ravello wallet that is now quite dark--not cigar but very dark for ravello.

    if wherever you bought them from will let you exchange, and they have them in your size, why not?

    Do you know if the Alden of San Francisco Ravello LWB have black edge trim or natural/antique edge trim?

    Thanks!

    My guess is natural. My PTB's come from ASF and they are natural.
