    sadly, I'll be sending the newly acquired ravello nst boots back to shoemart. there is so noticeable (imo) 'marbling' effect on one of the shoes. had it been just a small section i might have been ok..
    I tried to get a pic of it but it doesn't show very well

    feel free to hit up the shoemart in a week or two to see once they hit their inventory again. size 12

    "Cordovan" shoes are excluded. It works on Alden suede and Alden calf.

    The Peal & Co cordovan boot - made by C&J - is not suppposed to be included in the sale. Once BB realizes it, the code will not work (I had this converstion with a BB CSA for a prior sale). But they will honor the sale price if you get it to work.

    I ordered this boot about 18 months ago (when I found it in stock). Mine too were sent back - the coloring was too uneven.

    its a shame, if the panel on the inside of the shoe against the ankle were off I might have been okay with it. but for $730, I would have liked a little better overall quality.

    that's not even bringing into account a 1.5" portion on the outer sole that seems was sanded after the dressing was applied.

    oh well, cost me $8 for return shipping

    Kind of reminds me of this.....on my cigar indy boots. Doesn't bother me too much but I also didn't pay $730 for them

    ^ those would easily be worth it for TSM seconds price, but not $730. On the other hand, with the scarcity of Ravello out there, you might be able to sell these for above retail to someone else! :p

    at the TSM seconds price, I'd keep them. that being said, I'll process the return and someone else can live with them

    K, 4 of my 5 Barrie lasted lwb's were 8.5d. I bought the Barrie whiskey lwb in 8e an found no problem in length. It's even comfier for me than the d width. I would think a Barrie chukka should work similarly. What do you guys think?

    You will most likely be a 7.5; however, you may consider going down in width to get a snug fit at the heel. I go down in width with all my loafers.
