    Nice.

    Mine arrived at BNelson today via mail for a full JR restoration with double leather sole. Nick called my cell phone to confirm the specs. on my order. Class act. He thought they would be in the shop for a week to ten days and then shipped out.

    I use Alden and BNelson for restorations on my Aldens - and in this case I went with Nick since Alden would only do a restoration based on original specs (single leather sole).

    I go down in width for all my aberdeen tassels, but keep the same size in length.

    Amen to that.

    Thanks for the dentist chair shot. I love that BB model. I had that model and had to let them go. For some reason they were killing my pinkie toe.
    Bonus: You reminded me to cancel my dentist appt Friday morn! Thanks.

    Thank you, uncle.

    For me it's something of a new discovery - I think it looks absolutely fantastic - colour 8 boots are next!

    Gents,

    Where did the Ravello shortwings come from and are they Aberdeen? Those are fantastic. I'm a huge Aberdeen/shortwing fan. It is possibly my favorite shoe and I wish it came in more leathers/colors than the burnished tan. I'd wear them three times per week to the office.

    Thanks,
    Todd V

    +1. Color 8 NST boots are excellent IMO.

    I think Leather Soul had the Ravello shortwings on Barrie last....not 100% positive, I'm sure someone else can confirm. I do remember them selling out instantly, it probably wouldn't have mattered what last they were on.

    I believe all of Leather Soul's shortwings (ravello, color 8, black) are on the barrie. Sometimes, different patterns make the barrie last look sleeker than say a PTB or a longwing. This seems true of the shortwing pattern and also of the NST pattern.
