So, who picked up the Cigar Plaza Wingtip boots on the 'bay? Those are gorgeous. And who's going to pick up the Cigar Barrie Wingtip boot?

Probably a 10 hour wear. They haven't been on feet since then. Can anyone tell me how to post pics? I read one of the "how to's" yet still ended up with hyperlinks instead of the pics Those are the same photos from this eBay listing that ended a week ago. ...

Unlacing is unnecessary. If you look at the photo I posted a page or two upthread, you'll see...
^^^ Yes, in my experience the Barrie last is pointier and narrower than the Trubalance. Barrie Last: The leftmost boot is the Barrie lasted boot, and the one in the middle is Trubalance, both the same size (the right most boot is also Trubalance, but a different size).

In comparison,...

Those Plaza captoes are perfect. Everything about that configuration (last, eyelets, welt, sole, leather) is in balance, and that patina is amazing.

I'm always awed whenever you post pictures of those boots.

I agree with what people have said about the Indy boot being most appropriate with jeans. It does...
Tom, How old are those Ravello PTBs? With all the discussion about the changes in colour of Ravello I'm curious about the vintage of that pair and how they've aged (i.e. have they darkened with wear?). They look wonderful!
