    Thanks! Hoping to upgrade from my moleskine pants, but looks like they're out of stock at epaulet

    Nice - unlined CXL dovers if I'm not mistaken? My first shoe from Alden and one that started my obsession. The Dover makeup is my favorite - I have it in brown CXL, 3 types of suede (Snuff, Navy, Tan), and recently got the Color 8 version unlined from Leffot. Enjoy!

    Thanks! Yes, unlined CXL. So comfy. Color 8 huh? I'll have to check those out.

    Superb Don! As always!
    I am suspecting that it was an order submission and not a confirmation. But not sure. As far as I know, all Ravello runs that were from the last batch of Shell are done.
    Looking good today in your Brownvello PTBs. Your slacks are rad as well of course. Nice to see you circling around here again.
    Inspired by the J.Crew PCT love. Hopefully they'll look as good as @patrick_b's pair one day

    /quote] These look great today IMO. Enjoy them!
    A superb model. Great looking Bluchers.
    Looking well as well Steve. Enjoy your boots.
    Pretty hard to frown about shoes when wearing a Ravello NST Boot or Shoe. Awesome of course.
    Those are rugged and glorious Don. Hope that you had a good day.
    Looking good. I just visited Jim. Always a pleasure.
    Looking good Z in your Brownvello PTBs!
    Awesome as always. The 4 eyelet PTB is pretty cool alone.
    Call Mike and see if they have material and can make you a pair. I get most stock models that way even if they don't have my size in stock.
    Wore my pair today for the drive. Looking good my friend! -Mike

    Wow. I own the TSM version and love them. I never would have thought about another Cigar Indy, but when you put them next to each other it really makes me think! Nice work - the Leffot version is killer. I love the aesthetics of all eyelets, but the hooks are so much more practical.



    Dope! I'm excited for the ones I have coming from epaulet (brass hardware), but I'm thinking of selling off that preorder spot and going with these. I think snuff suede might be the one makeup that I like a dark eyelet better.


    These are phenomenal. Are these from this past winter? The shade looks great and you wear them well!



    Great choice! They're a classic boot... they work formal or casual. The commando sole is durable and will be good all year long. That looks like a nice shade of Color 8 too.

    Enjoy!!

    The Cigar LWB were delivered a month ago. Not sure on the rest. No ravello coming in for them (or anyone it seems) until well into 2016.

    Looks like they tried to cover up a long scuff during welting with some polish as its visible and has a different feel to it. Might try to work it out.

    Lovely dovers, I assume they are from Kathy in DC... I know she does them on dark edging...

    Congrats on them! They look very nice. I am sure that you will figure out the scuff. But they are Indy boots, right?

    Thanks Mike! Actually they're from Alden SF from 2012 I believe. My first foray into Alden.

    I've not seen a Color 8 PTB with antique welt/edge. Closest I've seen is the Leffot Dover with antique welt/edge which comes around maybe once a year?

    Yes they are, which is why I wasn't concerned about some of the other scuffs. Just the one stood out so I reached out to EP to get their thoughts. Its my first Alden CXL not sure what the standard is for them. They'll get more i'm sure.

    I believe Brick + Mortar is doing a Color 8 PTB (I think it was said to be a Dover) with antique edging; look at #41: http://brickmortarseattle.com/coming-soon.html

    You can contact Yenni to get the details, or if anyone here knows the makeup details & can verify
