I like whiskey, but it'll be a long time before I own a pair in it (if I ever do). In whiskey, I think I like:
  • PTB
  • LHS
  • chukka

For the beverage, I like it neat or in an old fashioned, manhattan, sazerac, or mint julep. smile.gif

Mine is a cigar wingtip boot, barrie last, brass eyelets with no speed hooks, double waterlock sole with flat welt.

Ravello 4 eye dover PTB with a single water lock sole. Barrie, close heel welt. 360 welt could work too.

PSA: I heard from Yenni at JGilbert today. The color 8 NST boots on the Plaza have been produced and are slated to ship yet this week from Alden to JGilbert. This probably puts them at JGilbert the end of next week and in our respective homes the end of the following week. So ......... barring something unforeseen, there is an end in sight, even if a month or so late. biggrin.gif

I own the LWB in cigar and whiskey, and I prefer the cigar right now. It's far more versatile. I bought the whiskey version first, though, and wore it hard for years.

amftx, what exactly is a "dover" PTB? Is it the stitching attaching the vamp to the rear quarters? That's the only difference I can discern between the standard PTB and the one described as "dover" sold by Unionmade.

Sorry for a non-Alden question, but if I'm 7.5D on the Plaza last, how should I size Common Projects? 40?

Thanks,
H

PS Tried this on Quick Questions but didn't get anywhere

Well as much as I like the Shoe Mart's service, I've come to realize the irregulars list is the cock tease of the shoe world. Ordered a pair of ravello plain toes not too long ago and they confirmed they were in stock. Charged my card, sent a confirmation email. Gratuitous enthusiasm ensued. I checked the tracking every couple days and when I didn't see any progress I called and was informed that there was an error and the shoes were not in stock. Will definitely order from them again after a great experience with another shoe but I guess this time was too good to be true.

Is anybody anywhere selling any Alden boots on the plaza last other than J Gilbert right now? Would love to pick up some cigar boots on plaza!

IMO, it is a strictly casual shoe. But that may be what you want .....
