    Twenty-five pairs hardly qualifies as "modest."

    Fair in the grand scheme. But relative to Tom's stores-full of them, it does.

    but the next time we do this, I should have more to show. I've got more than a few on order.

    Well played Tom
    Also I just got back from Hawaii ( Maui and Kauai) and I think anyone who has figured out how to make a living in Hawaii is winning at life...well done. Amazing place

    I love this color. Earlier this year I bought a pair of whiskey LWB that I returned because they were too light for my taste. But these are awesome.


    ravello lwb is a good looking shoe. enjoy wearing and remember the break in method
