I'm a 12B on Barrie and my trousers have a 17 inch opening. Anything less than that I think would look too skinny for my frame.

Recent Ravello PTB's from Alden SF.  I like them too, bk!

You guys area really breaking things down pretty granularly.  I don't think that any suede PTB or LWB (no matter what last) will look bad with some good fitting chinos (cuffed) with or without some nice socks.  Heel really isn't a big factor, unless it' super bulky.

Looks like the #4 wingtip boots are going to break 2 G's...

unreal. just a year ago the #4 chukkas I lost out on went for around $1,100. I can't believe its doubled.

 

I have a pair of unworn Ravello LWB's that I am likely going to sell. I wonder what they would go for...

This all depends on your definition of "tapered" though. For me, tapered means <15" openings.

Personally, I don't wear LWBs period as I am a tall, slim person with larger feet, so the proportions never look right on me. The tapering with larger shoes makes me look like I am wearing clown shoes.

I would presume when people wear tapered / skinny jeans on the barrie last, the proportions are even more contrasting.


MrDVs shoe pics are particularly appealing because he does appear to wear bottoms with more narrow openings (and apparently, no break ... but perhaps this is a function of his posture while the pic is taken?).

Sell them to me. I'll buy them for this ridiculous amount! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
