    Thank you.

    I do have CXL Indy boots, and I now how quickly they can get beaten up, but these are my first Longwings, and wasn't sure if this was normal or not.

    Wow - this is making me consider ordering the Leffot naval boots... I think the Leffot saddles are more my style, but these black captoe boots are outstanding.

    Darker like Whiskey? do they look similar to the LWB's posted above? I actually have the other pair of 8D's coming from NYC. I had a pair on order with Shoe Mart but cancelled it as I had a credit with NYC already. I should have mine tomorrow so just anxious to hear more about them ;)

    Natural CXL will crease, age differently across the shoe and darken with exposure to sun.
    If you're anal about surface appearance, it may not be the leather for you.

    Man, these look so nice. Is the welt light color? (can't see too well)

    I think I could have 10 pair of Ravello LWB and still justify buying more

    Sir, suede is your friend. In addition to the above. I have a suede Indy boot, suede Modified last boot, suede chukka, suede PTB, and a suede plain captoe blucher. And that's just in Alden.

    Great looking suede boot! What are the details of the makeup? I would love to see them with a navy lace or something.
