I think because the term "Brixton" was used. I thought that was an Epaulet term.

Sorry for confusion, they were sold to me as Brixtons so I went with it.. but indeed they are plaza/cigar/LS (and I couldn't be happier)

It's just the name the retailer gives the particular model making it easier for everyone. Epaulet calling their model the brixton is easier than having to call them the Alden wingtip boot in cigar cordovan on barrie last.

Shot them an email about restocking.

If I can land a Plaza lasted Indy first, I'll forgo the Context Tanker.

Wearing Leffot Navals today:

i checked their site the day they sent the email blast and only size 10 was available.

So there is a difference in light antique and regular antique...not sure why I am just realizing that now...or is that not the case?

From what I've heard there is actually 3 tones. The one we all know. A "Mahogany" and another. @mdubs should be able to help out with that as well and maybe find some examples locked away in the vault. When he gets home of course. Or is AoDC really his home??? :)

wow! that's a very light cigar. Basically the same tone as the Ravello PTB. Beautiful collection.

One of my favourite pair from LS that my now wife bought for me about 3 years ago.  

Question, is it possible to give these a bit of a shine?

I tried some Saphir Reno, it did clean them up quite a bit and give them back a bit of life.

Lastly, what can I use on the edging?  They seem to be drying up a little.

 

Thanks.

All them Ravello are looking good. The Brixton is on the Barrie Last, but have a flat welt and a tan "antique" edging. The LS version is magnificent, but is not a Brixton. But I see you got that now. Sorry they misinformed you. But your model is nicer than the Brixton.

As per someone's request, the TB Last Indy (401) versus the new DC Grant Lasted "Joseph Boot". Both are 9D.



When I get home, I will take a top down of the Plaza vs. Grant vs. TB indy.

I was literally JUST thinking this exact thing! That is as I was admiring the black pair I just picked up this evening. The roll continues icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Cue the poorly lit hotel bathroom pics
