    I've got some Ravello sitting around that I'd like to get rid of, but I'm having second thoughts about returning the recent J. Crew version. The brass eyelets with the antique sole really creates an entirely different shoe than the dark sole. Although, how many pairs of brown longwings does a guy need (I think I already have 7)?

    I don't know how many pairs one needs, but those J Crews would be amongst the ones I'd keep.
    You'd be crazy to get rid of them.

    My pair of jcrew ravello lwb arrive on wednesday. They seem like the ultimate match for raw denim with the brass eyelets.

    I hear ya, Zipp. My wallet and closet scream sell, but that's why I posted the picture. I know you guys are pushers and will help me rationalize keeping them :nodding:

    JCrew?

    ...

    Scroll back a few pages.


    Given by the other listing on his post, I'd say he's probably a 10.

    Apologies for the above. A very stressful day is making me more snarky than normal. Sorry guys.

    still on the hunt for ravello chukkas and possibly a pebble grain captoe/ptb.

    hoping the kudu modified order goes thru, along with DC Thor boot, and then I think i'm done with boots (not a fan of suede) [​IMG]
