Thanks Aldenfan for the discount code. I just bought a pair.
^Love those socks. Favorite argyles that I've ever seen. Where are they from? My best guess is RL.
It could be that the profile of the Plaza just does not appeal to you. It does not appeal to me, for the reason that you have described.
As an aside, to all the plaza fans. Personally i have been put off by the mention of the chisel toe in the past, but am coming around quite strongly in favor of it
Sometimes the chisel hardly seems there at all, and sometimes is seems more pronounced (all down to the pictures i am sure), it looked very chiselled on the LSxSF boot.
I am correct that is a very subtle, "hardy there at all" chisel?
The only plaza i have tried was the calf mocc stitched plaza loafer, the mocc stitching making it quite difficult to see the shape of the toe.
If anyone has experience of the fit of the loafer in comparison to the plaza boot i would appreciate the input.
I found that I could just fit into half a size down on the loafer, but it was a little snug - and the front, above the throat line where the half strap is) was uncomfortably tight and it was quite high. I assume that this tightness would also apply to the fitting of the plaza boot?
I am pretty sure i can fit into the Grant -0.5 (ie the tighter of the plaza loafers) or at least the E width of the grant was a touch too roomy.
this is the loafer i am talking about
