    I would have a whiskey and ravello shell, together,no problem. I would wear them equally.

    There isn't much 'practical' about our shoe addictions! I would throw that out the window...haha

    Keep hunting for the ravello lwb. Buy them when you find them, you will get tons of use out of them.
    You may want to keep the tobacco waxed lwb for rainy days.

    Wearing my Ravello NSTs today. Been a little while since I last sported them. They have been one of my projects to get the creases down and shine up.

    All: thanks for the responses. I'm mostly trying to talk myself out of a pair of Ravello LWBs and into another pair of shoes.

    I'd thought about selling the LWBs I've got, but I know I'll get hosed on transaction costs and depreciation. Further, while I'd love to have the full shell LWB rainbow, I would probably prefer waiting for the chimerical Ravello boot.

    When the J. Crew x Alden Ravello LWB came out this past January (see mine below, that I just happened to be wearing today) folks were debating whether it was overkill to have both the J. Crew version and the standard version. I am obsessed enough with Ravello shell that I would keep both if I had the chance.

    I wish I could go out and buy everything I see in uncle mac's pictures, now. Sadly that may never be the case.

    They are different enough; one is awesome and the other solid. I wear my tobacco when I think it may rain and ravello in nice weather. Water spots do show up very easily on ravello and whiskey.

    Your ravello LWBs and these ct boots are splendid as usual. I am glad to see that you wear all parts of your great collection often my friend!

    I'm afraid this looks a little like the wicked witch and her ruby slippers. Oh well...
