Beyond the style point, and in all seriousness, I like the perforated captoe better in a boot.   I think a boot with a plain toe, plain shaft, blind eyelets and speedhooks that blend into the color of the boot (as opposed to contrast) is just too much plain.  While that perforated captoe does not add much more ornamentation that the captoe, it does add some and I think looks better in a boot.  I also think the shape of the captoe looks better than the plain toe.

If I had to rank them it would go Jumper>Pitt

 

 

But...... that being said I think the Straight tip from DC beats out both.

Jumper is Leather Soul c. 2012, from a time before all they did was sell tennis shoes, Hawaiian shirts, and post pictures of pork plate lunches.  Purchased from a fellow collector.

 

On a related note, remember when MTV used to show music videos?

^ Nice - they look brand new!

^ "Worn exactly once" per the seller.  Then again, reminds me of the woman who has "only slept with (insert low number here) men."  Luckily, with shoes, you can tell by the extent of wear to the sole and uppers...

The rule is...multiply by 3!

 

And no, recycling old lovers doesn't "keep the mileage down" !

I have coveted the Cigar Pitt boot since I first saw it on LS's website a few years back. I own the Alden DC cigar cap toe and a cigar Indy, but I would go nuts if I had a chance to pick up a complimentary cigar Pitt boot even though they are all generally similar.

The Jumpers are clearly awesome, I just have a thing for the Pitt boot.
