I expect Plaza will win but I am a fan of the Grant last myself

I prefer shell boots on commando. I have three color 8 boots from JGilbert. All are splendid.
But of course nothing wrong with leather either.post #59613 of 1224169/9/13 at 6:14pmQuote:
I had Grant cigar captoe boots and really liked the last but unfortunately, wanted a bit sleeker Plaza. Comfort wise I like a bit snugger fit of Plaza which is very comfortable as well.
So Plaza is the winner for me.post #59614 of 1224169/9/13 at 6:16pmQuote:
The grant is a nice last, and I have owned it.
For me, the plaza is easily my favorite last for boots. No other last even comes close. However, plaza is not my favorite last for shoes (I like it though).post #59615 of 1224169/9/13 at 6:24pm
Stunners! Makes a strong case for ravello.Quote:
Wow! Leffot's pics were stunning but these are amazing. I'm sure you'll enjoy them for many years.
I keep considering doing a DIY antique edge trim on my color 8 PCT boots.post #59616 of 1224169/9/13 at 6:34pmpost #59617 of 1224169/9/13 at 6:54pmpost #59618 of 1224169/9/13 at 6:59pmQuote:Originally Posted by Steel28

For all those salivating over the Ravello LWBs, just be advised that I was told they were getting only 2 pairs in each size. There is a list with numerous alternate takers in case one of the first two backs out. In other words, chances are slim. Full disclosure -- I am on that list, but my prospects are not so great (no call for me today). Just thought I'd share that. I expect their phones will ring off the hook all day tomorrow.
Also get the sense they are not going to hand these out to people who have never been in there before -- but I could be wrong on that.
That makes two of us. I'm on the list as well and no phone call for me. Although I'm still recovering from LS captoe purchase.
A couple of years ago I was on that same ravello LWB list at Alden DC and I had not heard from them either. Word had spread on this thread of the arrival of the ravello LWB prompting me to call Kathy the next day. Four days later my King of the Gunboats showed up on my doorstep. Carpe diem my friends! Take the initiative and reach out to Kathy. All the best!!post #59619 of 1224169/9/13 at 7:06pmpost #59620 of 1224169/9/13 at 7:14pmQuote:
See, the one nice thing about the availability is it helps us in pacing out purchases. I fear the day that Whiskey, Cigar, and Ravello are readily available.post #59621 of 1224169/9/13 at 7:15pmWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Looks good. Never seen navy CXL in person but it looks pretty nice.
