    If that boot was available in 10 or 10.5 I would be all over it. Perfect boot imo

    How can I remove the black stains in the folds on #8 ptb?

    I've tried Excessive brushing with horse hair brush and rubbing with Reno. They didn't work.

    Did they come like that? or is it something that develop or was caused accidentally since you've been wearing them? Does it have a texture? or is it beneath the finish?

    Probably not the answer you are looking for, but if all else fails, maybe you can hide it with paste wax?


    Good Luck!

    alden unrelated, so please bear with me for a moment..

    does anyone have a line on some standard, black cotton shoe bags? I've found myself with too many bagged up options and am thinking color coordinated may be the way to go, by manufacturer.

    or, if someone has some personally in black that they are looking to sell off, pm me for 4 pr (all shoes sizes, boot size not nec)

    thanks in advance!

    Uncle Mac, this is the shoe that first got me interested in shell cordovan. When looking for suitable footwear on the BB website I came across a "penny loafer" that cost an astounding $650. On you these loafers look fantastic.

    My ravello LWB aren't that far from that color in certain lighting conditions. Part of the reason that I sold my cigar LWB, I found my dark ravello with dark edge trim to be much more appropriate with business wear

    Cigar would look more greenish. Looks just like Ravello to me, reddish.

    I have numerous ravello models and that is definitely on the dark end of the ravello spectrum (which I like by the way). The shoes pictured look nice.

    Some cigar models have olive tones (such as my chukkas), and some have none (such as my LWBs). Both shades are nice.
