    Does the almond shape clash with the stitching design?

    Very nice. I think I might like Aberdeen NSTs more than sevenfoldtieguy and others, though for some reason I think I prefer NSTs in #8 or ravello. To each his own.

    Typically, Aberdeen-lasted NST shoes are the most available when compared to NST shoes on other lasts.

    Check Alden SF and Shoemart for aberdeens (and a few on the barrie). Check Citishoes for barrie. JGilbert seems to consistently have at least some NST models on the Plaza.

    I believe only Shoemart has the ravello NST right now (aberdeen).

    HELP...

    I am leaving for a Cruise in two weeks... I have some loafers and Moc for wear during the day... But at the capt Dinner I will be wearing a Navy Suit... Unfortunatley I do not have Cor Wingtips, Only Pebble Black, Tan, and Dr Brown Calf... I was thinking Dr Brown, since I am not a black fan.... But I wanted some opinions..

    I generally do not wear black shoes with navy suits, but I suppose it would work for an evening event. I like the dark brown shoes better.

    I'd look into preordering the natural chromexcel, but natural chromexcel seems to vary significantly from how it looks out to the box to how it ages. Preordering a pair, particularly in my E size, would be risky

    I'd grab an Atom in 10E if I didn't already have the whiskey wingtips

    The suede longwings are classics - I wish they offered the snuff in E widths

    I own the Indy boots from them on commando soles that is on preorder, I highly recommend that boot for fall/winter.

    I'd get the boots but depends on your preference. Much more of a boot man. Are you Cigar PTB from anatomica as well?


    yeah gonna email them about this again. Really really want that boot

    I really like those Atoms quite a bit too. Decisions, decisions.


    Great choice! No pictures from me, but that was my footwear for the day as well.
