It would be good to know how you intend to wear them, but I'd probably go with a PTB or chukka in #8 or cigar. You already have some brogues, but you might also consider the RL Marlow wingtips. With the current sale going on, they come to $505.75 + tax.

Took your advice and posted the black PTBs on the SF classifieds. Thanks for the tip, Papa. Next time I will learn. Meanwhile, someone will profit from the errors of my ways...

No worries!  Just wanted to make sure I wasn't misunderstood.

Is this the same boot in the same color? Color looks much nicer on the first one but they are both just listed as snuff

Wow I didn't realize.

 

The gal said it could be a bit later, but I got the impression it might be a month or only two later at the most.

Viberg makes a much better looking boot in this vein.

I expect to see my pre-ordered Ravello boots sometime this decade.

every Viberg boot I've seen either has a horrible looking sole (most of them) or a raised toe that looks like clown boots.

Prepare to wait up to 2 years for these, possibly longer

Wayyyy better with several sole options.

^^ FYI. There is a group trying to put together a group order for the above Viberg Service Boot in Roughout CXL. 10% discount. Specs as pictured, but you choose the soles.

Nice boots, thinking of selling mine. They just do not seem to fit right and hurt my ankle...


Any such issues for you?
