More cigar for a beautiful day in San Francisco. Stopped by Alden SF during lunch and had to restrain myself from opening the wallet....

Thank you, having a hard time deciding between a ravello LWB and a Cigar cap toe, sadly need to choose 1.

Yes, buy my listed LWB! shog[1].gif

It is a nice color and can't wait for my day tripper...

I would buy them in an instant if they were my size.

Depends on what you wear day-to-day, a LWB is probably more versatile. The cigar cap toe (I assume from Alden DC) is a great boot though. If I didn't get the LS cigar wing tip boot I would have bought the cigar cap toe.

Thanks! ...and you are correct...but these are really just superficial surface scuffs and a quick brushing should eliminate them...I think they are from banging on my chair at work

Good to hear the scuffs are less severe in real life. All these recent shell 'injuries' recently... Will definitely be more mindful of my shell bal boots... the rugged look do not match them as well as on Indy's.

+1. I have this problem and steel taps make them go away. If you're in America, Nick does good work.

As someone with no cigar, what would be a better first shoe: Cigar cap toe blucher on the plaza, or cigar chukka on the barrie?

The plaza cap toe you speak of sounds sexy, but personally i'd get more use out of the chukka. My style is 95% casual though.

+1 for cap toes on the plaza. Wearing a pair of them today actually.

I don't own any chukkas which is why I'm interested in them, but I dont know how to wear them or what to wear them with.

...with anything except a suit in my opinion. The chukka is a casual boot, but having it in shell dresses it up a little bit making it very versatile.

For those in NYC, how many suede bucks / longwings did Tom Austin have? Been craving a more summer shoe and just saw a Tom Austin one on eBay
