Definetly Plaza.

Do members typically size up from the Barrie to the Plaza? 

 

As in, 8.5D Barrie = 9D Plaza?

Not sure yet if I want to pull the trigger??  Any thoughts??  @REguy

 

I have these and love them......go for it!

(Not sure this is allowed, but a gentleman on r/goodyearwelt has done an interesting job lightening up his #8 CTs. I think they look great!)

How'd he do it?

My PCTs lightened up over the last couple of yrs (one more than the other).



Next to some newish #8 for reference.

TBH not a huge fan.  Not bad, just not an effect I would particularly desire.  They kind of look to be #2 or Ruby.  But then again, they also look they might just be a slightly lighter shade of Color 8 that is sitting in a sunbeam at the time of the picture.  Don't mean to offend -- the boots are great and look to be wearing in well, just too red for my tastes and I wouldn't go out of my way to try to get that look on purpose.
