I just got charged for my #8 JCrew PCT too but I'm probably returning them soon as I get them. They were also originally back ordered for Feb 10 2014.

The status of the order just says open.

I wonder how hard it would be to convince J Crew to order a 9.5E for me in their captoe during the next run...

Probably easier to get on the next run of Naval captoes from Leffot (without speedhooks)

True, but I prefer a version with a dark sole (I've owned and sold the Naval captoes). Maybe I could just convert the sole to dark.

Speak for yourself. 

The toebox on those Plaza boots is great.

Love these boots. I have come to the conclusion that I really dig any #8 shoe/boot with brogueing. The plaza looks great.

Last night my CXL longwings arrived from Epaulet.

 

I'm relieved to say that the gamble paid off, and my Barrie size (for this model) indeed 8.5D. They fit perfectly! The details are exquisite, the sole can only be described as beefy...which I love. I'll post pics later.

 

Anyone else feel like the stock laces on some models are way too short?  I've switched a couple of blucher laces out for 36" pairs and have had a much easier time.

Absolutely beautiful. Hands-down the best of the best: color #8, plaza last, and shortwings. I know that we all tend to seek out the more exclusive combinations of lasts and shells, but for those of us that wear suits, it doesn't get any better than this. I almost wore mine today, but DC has freezing rain.

Does anyone know whether anyone has ever made a whiskey, single sole, plaza last shortwing (either as a shoe or boot)? That would probably be my ultimate shoe. I know that the MTO program is completely undependable, but would anyone else be in for that make-up?

sazon, impressive #8 boots sir. Do you have a sport coat that matches those slacks? Very nice.

I think a bunch of us are on a plaza whiskey shortwing boot (but with commando sole) pre-order that I put together with Epaulet. It is my dream boot as well but we are pushing 3 years and there is no end in sight. So I wouldn't hold your breath.
