    "Che" I believe. She fitted me for my 1494s and a Plaza cap toe. Excellent service.

    I have ravello tassels from Leffot - I don't believe they have reordered them though, so these may be the only chance to get them in the near term

    Thanks for the input. I remember a couple months ago I asked people to list their favorite style for each of the shell colors, and the chukka was easily the most common choice for whiskey.

    Basically weekly (less in the winter than the other three seasons). Given they are one of my older pairs, they actually are probably the pair that will get resoled/recrafted first. I wear either suits or trousers/blazers during the week Monday-Thursday, and I wear ravello tassels with navy, blue, or light grey pants.

    ^Very interesting. Would love to see pics if you ever have a chance.

    (lately, I have been considering Cigar Tassels)

    Gave my Alden family a Mac/Reno treatment this morning to kick off the year right. Wanted to get some photos in the late afternoon sun.

    That is an intriguing shoe. I have not seen it (Alden 96080) before. Looks like it might be the Tremont last.

    Natty looks like whiskey. Well done.

    Perhaps not "get rid of" but regretfully depart company with?
