    Just to be clear, I did not take it as sarcastic. If anything, a compliment.

    considering that he owns many of the Alden for BB shell offerings
    actually, all (full strap in 8 is the factory version)

    Understand the feeling. I ordered the Ravello chukka from TSM last Thursday and on Friday the status switched to new. Been checking the status 3 times a day since. Last night status switched to cancelled. I'm crushed......

    Several ravello models have popped up on this thread over the past few months

    Ravello LWB from Alden SF, Alden DC and J Crew
    Ravello Chukkas from Alden NYC and Shoe Mart
    Ravello captoe boots from Unionmade Goods

    Just continue to follow the thread and some ravello will pop up

    I'm considering a couple of black captoe boot models

    Alden DC - Grant, straight tip captoe, commando sole, speed hooks
    Alden NYC - Grant, straight tip captoe, double leather sole, all eyelets

    I want the boot to be as versatile as possible... My question is do any of you wear your commando soled boots with sleeker lasts (grant, plaza, etc) with suits? I'd like to be able to wear this boot with a suit occasionally.

    I would then focus on the leather soled one in my opinion. Or maybe even look a naval cap at leffot

    I regularly wear mt plaza last #8 PTBoot/commando sole with suits. I think the plaza last, even with the light commando sole, looks better with suits than my barrie last boots. The commando sole is barely noticeable, unless your sitting with your legs crossed, feet dangling in the air.
