That's the Leather Soul policy as well so it's not unique. It's also the reason that I will never buy anything from LS.

That makes two of us. I'm on the list as well and no phone call for me. Although I'm still recovering from LS captoe purchase.

interested in NAMOR's LSvJG plaza captoe posts.  was the just delivered LS captoe pre-order made in Jan?  Interesting that two stores essentially had the same makeup preorder.

J Gilbert has some speed hooks and commando sole. LS has all eyelets and leather sole. So they are both captoes on Plaza but still have some differences. Given the weather I live in I also opt for commando sole if possible

Battle Royale - Plaza vs Grant

I expect Plaza will win but I am a fan of the Grant last myself

I prefer shell boots on commando. I have three color 8 boots from JGilbert. All are splendid.

But of course nothing wrong with leather either.

I had Grant cigar captoe boots and really liked the last but unfortunately, wanted a bit sleeker Plaza. Comfort wise I like a bit snugger fit of Plaza which is very comfortable as well.

So Plaza is the winner for me.

The grant is a nice last, and I have owned it.

For me, the plaza is easily my favorite last for boots. No other last even comes close. However, plaza is not my favorite last for shoes (I like it though).

Have a great week.


Wow! Leffot's pics were stunning but these are amazing. I'm sure you'll enjoy them for many years.

I keep considering doing a DIY antique edge trim on my color 8 PCT boots.

patrick, I'm probably wrong but I don't believe I've ever seen an antique edge on a boot with a 270 degree welt. Interesting idea. If anyone could pull it off you could.

These babies just arrived. Navy CXL bluchers for J. Crew with brass eyelets. Sorry for the low quality pics.

A couple of years ago I was on that same ravello LWB list at Alden DC and I had not heard from them either.  Word had spread on this thread of the arrival of the ravello LWB prompting me to call Kathy the next day.  Four days later my King of the Gunboats showed up on my doorstep.  Carpe diem my friends!  Take the initiative and reach out to Kathy.  All the best!!

I like very much!  My friend, wear your bluchers often and in great health. :slayer:

See, the one nice thing about the availability is it helps us in pacing out purchases. I fear the day that Whiskey, Cigar, and Ravello are readily available.
