Beat me!

Oscillating between no. 8 Wingtip boot and no. 8 Plain toe boot - any thoughts?

LOL! So hard putting a deposit down and waiting so long. What if I don't want the Ultimate Indy by the time they are ready? And I don't want to transfer the deposit on something else?

If it's @CEE88 's plain toe color 8 boot on plaza with commando soles, that's the one to go for now.  The barrie wingtip boot is great but also very readily available.  I say both, with the PTB on plaza first! :D

Thanks - the available boots both have Barrie lasts and commando soles.

I'm guessing you're looking at the alden SF options? I really like the plain toe boots I got from them some time ago, and they look quite proportionate in D widths

Just snagged these on the Bay for a sweet $227.50.  If I hijacked at the last second, a fellow SFer's attempt to acquire these Alden for J Crew, Tan Suede Shortwing Bluchers, I apologize.  :embar:

 

Does anyone know which last these shoes are built on?  Might they be Aberdeen like the 966??

 

I assumed barrie, but when I tried them on, they were not as roomy as I expected.  (They may in fact be barrie, but just thought I would ask.  I have not been able to find out on line.)  They still fit quite well, but likely no Chupp or other thick socks.  Still very happy with them...

If that's the case I would definitely go with the wingtip boot.  It is probably my favorite boot in my small collection. :nodding:

Pretty sure they're Barrie from 2012.

That's right. Thanks for your insight.

WT Boot - more versatile, IMO. But really, you can't go wrong with either.
