Thanks.

I can tell that it will not be my last shell purchase as I already love my #8 chukkas. Thanks to all!

Welcome.

Allow me to predict this will not be your last pair of shell chukkas. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Nice, so versatile cordovan is. 

 

 Any advise on posting pictures using Flickr?

I associate Rolls-Royce more with JL... Maybe Alden with Cadillac? Since the shoe in question is a blucher brogue wingtip, I think it is acceptable. If the commando sole was on a a cap toe bal on the Plaza on the other hand, then I would say it might not work with the aesthetics.

I was smiling thinking about a Rolls with a lift kit...icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Just wanted to say I used the mac method on a pair of cigar ptbs and it really works.  Will continue.  Amazing how no products are used.

There are a lot of cordovan models that seem to work well with commando soles... If you can wear business casual (khakis, occasional wool pants, etc), you can defintiely pull off commando soled cordovan shoes. The various AOC models, Leffot's ravello PTB on commando, the grant lasted Cigar captoe on commando all seem to "work."

Crepe is another issue - the only crepe soled cordovan models that seem to work are cigar PTBs (which have been offered by Winn Perry, Unionmade and now Frans Boone). I don't understand why crepe and cigar seems to work OK, but it does. Other crepe cordovan models (such as AoC's ravello longwing on crepe and even some of the Leather Soul boots) seem off.

more evidence that AoC accepts returns from some customers and not from others?

Are these (the color 8 captoes above) the J. Gilbert on the plaza last? They seem to have some black shading in the photo.........very nice!

Hey gents,

I'm an avid Barrie last guy with the hopes of transitioning into a Plaza last shoe... I'm normally a 10.5D and have done a little research and found that I may have to size up to 11D in the Plaza, is this the norm for most? I hope I can pull off Plaza, seems narrow as hell.
