Trubalance goes the other way:  it is the last the indy boot is on and is Alden's widest last -- widest all over, including toe box.  

 

You want plain toe on plaza last.

I would go LWB or straight tip/medallion toe

In this order:  (1) Captoe bluchers; (2) perforated captoe balmorals or (3) short wingtip balmorals.  

 

Personally, I would opt for the NSTs because I love the NSTs.  I recognize, however, that given the restriction of  one pair of color 8 cordovans, the NSTs are an idiosyncratic choice for suits.   Most would think (and most would likely be right) that the other three choices above would have more versatility along the range of clothes you specify than NSTs.

That sure is a great-looking shoe.

Found the solution to my personal "what color paste wax for my color 4ish ravello" quandry. Kiwi Dark Tan. Apparently not that easy to come by but was described as "chestnut". Very much to my liking as it didn't change the reddish hue.

A fair point - let me rephrase, which should I buy FIRST?

I'm sticking with my captoe recommendation.

Got my Ravello chukkas today.  Posting a family photo of my chukkas.  From left to right: Cigar, Ravello, Whiskey.

 

See Ya,

Steve

Posting photos of my Ravello PTB...San Francisco and Ravello Chukkas...Washington DC.  The chukka box was a little beaten up and IMHO its from an earlier batch than the most recent Ravellos.

 

See Ya,

Steve

Your PTBs look the same shade as my Cigar.
