I'm wearing my #8 Captoes on Grant today. Double leather sole. Go 1/2 up from Trubalance on these. These fit just as good as my Trubalance lasted boots. These are from The Shoe Mart, but a couple retailers have them.

I'd go with the medallion cap toe blucher (2145), but there are a bunch of other nice options also.

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.

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.
