I was, thanks for the response. Been contemplating those for about 6 months and your pictures may have convinced me to pull the trigger. Would be my first shell as well.

I have the black shell wingtip bal from BB (eyelets; M-75 Last (somewhat like Plaza, but not Plaza)). I have the factory model color 8 shell wingtip bal - 974 (no eyelets; Tremont Last). They are equally dressy and neither is more casual than the other.

With respect to eyelets on the wingtip bal in question, I couldn't disagree more with this statement.

not a fan of the eyelets but i love this makeup nonetheless. im hesitant because i need a size E in the plaza but only D is available. may need to take the gamble and hope D stretches to E

It's a very nice shoe.

One more question. Any idea what kind of edge dressing I should use for these? Would AEs brown be too dark?

Agree. These #8 J Crew cap toes shows really well in these photos.

Both of those boots above are fantastic. The Ravello pair blew me away. They look so flawless up there.

I use AE brown on mine. Just make sure you wipe off the excess before it dries to avoid build up.

They are really great boots. Broke mine out today for the first time since May, was reminded how great they are.

Nice boots and pics, herrmj
