My Epaulet wing tip ravello boots looked like this when they were new. Mine have a greater shine and have darkened with wear.

The Leydon looks very similar to the Barrie (which I like), and has a narrower heel (which I require). I think it's the best "gun boat" last. I wish Alden used it more. There was a suede longwing on the Leydon recently. It made me yearn for some shell longwings on the Leydon. Quote: Originally Posted by...

I wish more retailers stocked more shoes on non-standard lasts. It does look good on some shoes. Boots in particular look good on the Barrie. The Grant captoes earlier in the thread, though, are beautiful.

^ Everyone has their opinion on lasts. I dislike the Plaza intensely (both for fit and looks). Everyone else seems to love it... To each their own!

Hmm I seem to remember seeing some cigar Grant captoe boots with a leather or waterloc sole at some point. Ring any bells with any of you internet bigtimers? The Grant last is very nice. An under-used last by Alden stockists, I think. The BB LWBs on the Grant look so much better than Barrie longwings.

^ The Gap khaki -- which was, IIRC, a Mickey Drexler project when he was there -- affected the image of American bizcash forever, mostly in bad ways that have to do with ill-fitting pants with leg openings the size of my waist.
