    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.

    Pretty tough boot to find. There are plenty of people who would love to find it. Alden DC I believe has a few pairs in stock depending on your size

    If you are really set on a dark brown shell boot, check out the carmina thread. A captoe mto is about to be submitted to the factory. Turnaround is only 3 months

    Hill, Those look FANTASTIC in snuff. I understand your hesitancy has nothing to do with the "defect", but rather the last itself. If its a fit issue, I'd find it tough to hold onto as well. But from my view, they look flat out amazing! Hope you can get the fit issue solved. If not, and they are my size, let me know before you return them :)
