post #53821 of 122416

Need some advice.  I think I am ready to pull the trigger on some NST.  I was planning to go with the ravello NST boot on aberdeen last but someone snagged it last week (congrats to whomever you are).  Not sure which shoe to go with (a) cigar NST on barrie, (b) whiskey NST on barrie, or (c) ravello NST on aberdeen.

 

Both barrie and aberdeen suit me well, and I only have one pair of shoes in each of these colors (cigar and ravello in LWB and whiskey in wingtip oxford).

 

Thanks in advance...

rtp,

1. I can't believe you found 3 or 4 rare nsts to choose from.

2. I vote for the ravello Aberdeen nst. quickly, before someone else buys them.

I'm kickin' myself for not snagging the boot version last week.  I'm leaning toward ravello/aberdeen.  Thank you friend!

All three.  And, actually one more:  the color 8.

 

If you must get one, get the one you like best.  If that is not enough of a guide, ravello is likely the most versatile of the three you mention, but color 8 is the most versatile of all - the Kang of Kordovan.

No sense in going this far if a guy doesn't get black shell as well (on aberdeen; 2211). smile.gif

could you expaned a little on what sizes you take in other lasts and what you got in the leydon.

 

thx

Contrary to what others said, cigar is arguably the most versatile of the three options you have listed (whiskey, ravello, cigar). I would also argue that the barrie last is more versatile than the aberdeen.
