Wow - that's tough...  Those are two fine looking boots.  

 

Flip a coin.  If you feel like you want to go two out of three, you know which one you really wanted...

I will keep the j crew as it is a special make up, although leffot and tsm had made a similar one.

The wing tip boot is easy to buy if you regret later

That makes sense to me.  However, in my calfskin JCrew Barrie LWB, the 8.5 D is the size that fits me best, although it's a bit roomier than I like.  Therefore when I ordered these captoe boots I figured the extra room would be good for boot socks so I ordered the same size.  But instead of extra room, these boots feel snug, maybe even too snug, and that's with regular socks! Now what?

Have you worn the JCrew PCT boots, or can you still exchange them for a bigger size?
If you can't exchange them, maybe that's the pair you want to get rid of? If they don't fit right, the chance is they won't see much wear.

I have both and wear the wingtip boot more frequently.  If you can only keep one, determine for yourself which one you would reach for more often.  Really can't go wrong with either...

KEEP BOTH!!  :nodding:

I can return the JCrew pair but they they are out of stock in most sizes now, including 9.  I think I am leaning towards this pair though.  If I wear regular socks with them, I think they will fit ok as long as they loosen up a tad.  The question is if I will regret not being able to wear boot socks with them in the cold weather...

I assume you can not return them? Is that also the JCrew boot you are referring to?

While I am not ready for prime time when it comes to the Jeans you guys sport this pair did make me seek out a pair of Levi's in a similar color. I think this is one of the nicest jeans I have ever seen. Sadly most of the cool kids jeans you guys wear do not come in my robust waist size of 40. At least with the Levi's I wont cry when my 5 years runs to hug me with a marker in his hand...lol

I like the idea of flipping a coin and if you feel the need to go 2 out of 3 you pretty much know the answer. I would also think about how you would wear them as the perf cap toe is a bit more formal a design than the wing tip. Both beautiful though and really can't go wrong either way!

As long as your little one doesn't come scribbling with said marker on Daddy's shoes.

That being said, Gustin has size 40.

I am sure the levis will be awesome, regardless.
