I imagine they have all been made on a variety of lasts.

 Pitt, jumper, and brogue captoe, aka "Taunton" maybe as well.

^ Perf captoe boot (e.g. Leffot Naval Boot).

I thought Jumper boots are usually on Trubalance?

I personally really like the alt wein shoe/boots, basically medallion toe with extra broguing. This is a picture from an old AoC make up, plaza last, #8.

(I know that's tan calf though)

Ravello medallion toe looks great too. Wish I could see a plaza Indy in person to compare to my Barrie Indy, which I find plenty sleek but could be wrong if I see a Plaza.

Yenni will be at the Alden factory this week. Upon her return she hopes to have the answer (or at least a strong sense of the answer) as to whether or not the black shell NST boot on plaza order will be confirmed. I would give a hearty recommendation for that boot.

These are the models I know:

Plain toe boot = Pitt boot (LS)
Straight cap toe boot = Daytripper (Leffot, Grant) = Parajumper (Frans Boone, Grant)
Perforated cap toe boot = Naval (Leffot, Barrie) = Jumper (LS, TB?)

Medallion toe only (Only at JGilbert on Plaza AFAIK)

Perforated cap toe with medallion = Alt Wien boot (only at AoC AFAIK)

Wing tip boot
Brixton boot = WT boot with extra broguing in the heel

Indy boot
NST boot = Tanker boot


You know my vote biggrin.gif

Thanks 7FTG, I knew Yenni was going to the factory this month, but didn't remember quite when.

Black shell boots rule on nasty days with terrible weather - when you really just need to stomp through - that darkness fits the dark day

 

So a commando sole helps. I avoid the plain toe in black it looks so sovereign citizen. But after seeing that plain toe boot in cigar that the Beebs has I would be all over that cigar Pitt boot I believe. 

 

When I got my captoe boots /black shell/ all eyelets/ Alden NYC double leather /flat welt - I thought this look really just supports broguing  so eel,l I thought I should have went  with the wingtip but concluded that a Perforated Cap toe boot would be my #1. If anything it makes it easy to see you are wearing a captoe when it is perforated on black shell.

 

So a PCT shoe  /black shell or an Algonquin split toe /black shell has become my next decision.

My new Ravello LHS, no socks, linen pants. I feel like Columbus on the shores of a brave new world...
post #84674 of 122416
What edge and sole will the ravello LWB be on?
post #84675 of 122416
Alden of Carmel black grain LWB on commando or the Aldex leffot black grain LWB on plantation crepe sole?
