post #64426 of 122416
I struggle with tassels and full strap loafers. I barely pull off wearing lhs.
Does anyone else feels one is more "conservative" than the others?

I'm only bringing it up because the cigar full strap would fit me, but I'm not tempted. If they were cigar lhs... I would have bought them 2 Saturdays ago.

Pretty sure they're both Barrie. The ravello nst is on the Aberdeen.

Sorry about that -- I totally misspoke. I'll edit.

+1. Color. 8 PTB and crepe work well together.

I thought someone posted pics of their Cigar NST shoes a few days ago and they were Aberdeen. I can't remember exactly, so I'm probably wrong. Also, to clarify both the Whiskey and Cigar NST options from TSM 2nds were shoes, not boots.

No problem at all. Thanks for sharing cool shoes at a great price.

Cigar NSTs from TSM are on Barrie.

1-Color 8 PTB w/crepe sole (yeah crepe)
2-Black shell LWB w/flat welt.

Thanks.

Between those two, I'd go black shell LWB.
If between the 990 and 9741, I'd go 990. And then I'd get the 9741 shortly thereafter.

Correct. No boots.

To be comfortable in one is to be comfortable in the other, IMO.

It seems like you will wear these more casually. If that is the case, 1

I was on the preorder list for 2, but Alden forgot to ship the E width orders somehow.

After examining the shoe in person, I am thinking about shifting the preorder funds to something else as I think I prefer the storm welt on the LWB. I probably will end up with a black longwing eventually - maybe not the Leffot model. Obviously if you want to wear it with suits, you may want to consider the longwing instead.

I owned a cigar PTB on crepe and found it awesome (it was sized incorrectly, though, so I sold it). Honestly Leffot's current PTB on crepe looks an awful like the cigar. It will be very versatile.

That said, I would also consider the plain old 990, which Leffot can order for you, if you don't have it. My pair has quickly become one of my favorite shoes.

What's your concern - the fit or the look?

Tassels used to be more conservative than the full strap, but I see the kids nowadays wearing them sockless with jeans. I have a full strap (color 8) and a tassel loafer (dark ravello) and get a lot of use out of both during the workweek (I wear at least one of them every week).

Interesting. I would be all over those full straps if they were my size. I have a unique fit on Aberdeen for loafers. I find those loafers much more slimming than the LHS.
