First time ordering plaza though. I'm 10.5d in Van, Barrie and trubalance...and 11D in Hampton so hoping they work.

These are my first Plaza as well. I went with my Brannock size and they are perfect.

Holy hell.  Told myself I'm ok without a pair of these since I have the ravello aberdeen version.  I was wrong.  I will not be ok.

Couldn't agree more. I have a half dozen @Equus Leather belts and love them. I'm on the casual side of business casual but as it is truly a bespoke operation, Charlie will make up exactly what you need from casual to formal.

 

I wear an Equus burgundy bridle belt with color 8 all the time. Best part is they will mail you swatches so you can match up as needed. For reference, here's their burgundy bridle along side some common colors:

I know of two stores that have done whiskey tankers - Leffot and Tassels. I haven't seen a ton of rare cordovan out of tassels recently so I'm not sure if they still do them. I'm sure others are also planning them

It is difficult (too difficult) for new customers to identify what store has had a particular model and is likely to order it again. I know we toyed with the idea of building a database here before (something that would let you sort by material, style, and sole and would spit out model numbers, stores that stock the style and previous runs). This should be doable on something like Google Sheets, right?

This should not be too difficult to do. I am sure we have enough collective pairs/knowledge to cover most pairs.

Haven't rocked these in awhile.  Ravello LWB in the rain, as they were meant to be worn.  From Alden DC, of which IMO is the best Alden shop.

If you go to the My Collection page on my AoSD, I list for each makeup who made them, in a first pass attempt at creating this. I strategically decided to limit it to shoes that I had taken photos of to make the user experience as good as possible.

If some are interested, I can create them an account on the blog and we can create a collective "database" table with all the makeups and can assign a probability of reproduction on there. Sometimes it's hard to guess that probability, but we could at least do a Low-Medium-High scoring.

When did Alden make shell belts? I'm guessing this is no longer possible?

Would a Google docs excel file work? Assign it headers such as
Leather, last, sole, shoe/boot, model, vendor, model number, special ie. Brass hardware, likely hood of being remade..etc.

Would that work?
