I also like the dark edge trim on the J Crew and Grant last captoes.
But the Brixton is sweet.
Persuade me!

The #8 Grant last cap toe boots are one of Alden's finest makeups. You will not be disappointed.

Just keep wearing the PT boots; the only difference, literally, is the cap toe.

PSA - Tres Bien WINTERDEAL code works on Aldens, pricing is about the same after VAT but might have some stock that isn't that popular in US stores

Cigar plain toe boot on what looks like the modified last thus either Moulded Shoe (NYC) or Anatomica (Paris) are most likely responsible for that makeup.

The more recent ravello has been quite dark.  Under good lighting, my ravello LWB are a shade or two lighter than my cigar LWB.  Fortunately one has antique edging and the other dark brown.  It can be easy to confuse the two shell colors in some cases.
