Yeah true. I can wait on that one I suppose. Saw a #8 shell beefroll loafer in the wild today and was pretty impressed but Ravello draws my heart for that shoe.

Not a bad idea! I really dig the tan suede LWBs that Leffot has. I should probably take the 10 minute walk from over and visit that place for once. A bit apprehensive given the comments about the in store experience but why not.

LWB Color #8 w/ Antique Edges (I have these on preorder at Leffot)
#8 CT Boots (probably DC's Commando Speedhook makeup. ideally I'd get Cigar but that's the game)
Ravello LHS

Thoughts/ideas?


FWIW, I will choose CXL Indy boots / tanker boots (any color you like) over the CT boots, and suede LHS (any color) over Ravello LHS.

I'd love to see that Natoma dover in natty cxl side by side with the Viberg x SF MTO derby.

 

Due to the Alden dover in nat. cxl, I almost wish the Viberg GMTO was for a copper task rough out derby on Dainite, same as the MTO that was once posted. That would've been sexier, I think.

The Ravello LHS is my favorite LHS color, but the Tan Suede LHS is another stunning color on the LHS. The unlined flex welter Suede LHS is like walking with a slipper on also... I would personally get the Tan Suede while you wait on the Ravello LHS...

Thoughts/ideas?

This would be my 3:

(1) Snuff suede PTB with flex sole

(2) Color 8, black or cigar cap toes or WT

(3) Color 8 LWB (as you stated)

He asked.
If my answers frighten you, then you should cease asking scary questions.

More realistic given the times.
#8 Barrie sw, antique edge, commando.

MrDV, darn it! Uncle Mac says I need an 11.5 or possibly a 12D in a plaza lasted boot because I'm an 11.5D US tts, 11D barrie LWB, 11.5D barrie boot.
post #82409 of 122416
Bravissimo, MrDV. I will never see these in this decade. I'm sure.

AoC and JGilbert do many plaza makeups.
