Yup...it's the Warwick on the 888 last in dark oak. Pretty darn near perfect.

Well, the teachers would try it but after a while they would get confused themselves, LOL.
Where're you currently located if I may ask?

I would say "no". I have boots for outdoor work, for motorcycle rides, and that's about it all I deem them appropriate for. I do not believe boots are appropriate for any type of dress wear.

And haven't been since they lost their legacy of being worn with dress attire since Edwardian times...oh wait, what am I saying? Regards, Huntsman

I may be in the minority but I personally like dress boots. Wingtip and cap toes are my favorites. Chelseas and Jodpurs I can do without.

Boots are great to wear in the winter. Nothing worse than going to your car in the morning after a few inches of snow overnight. Wet ankles are not the way I like to start the day. Boots are practical and look fine to me.

Even Connery generally wore a distintive, short boot (see the Thunderball PTS for a good view) with a long, narrow shape and fairly pointed toes. With suits I dare say.

Those are custom Marteganis from Franco's, if I remember correctly. I have a similar pair coming, but with a monkstrap and no medallion.

Pictures when they arrive, please!! Those boots are gorgeous and I love monkstraps!

Baron, how did you go about determining your correct size? It's doubtful I can make it to Richmond to visit Franco's, but I've been coveting Marteganis for nearly a year. I haven't ordered because the toes look narrow and I've never tried on anything by Martegani.
