    TW JUST POSTED A PAIR OF THESE CIGAR WT BOOTS A FEW POSTS UP FOR TRADE - THEY WOULD BE YOUR SIZE (AS I KNOW WHAT SIZE YOU ARE).
    edit: (sorry for the caps lock) there must have been a miscommunication, as it appears you actually responded to that post - - anyway, that is the leathersoul plaza cigar wt boot you are asking about.

    best of luck!

    From what I've seen on other threads, some people like to crease their cordovans. The shine on those shoes appears to be maintained pretty well at least. There are also some duplicates in there, so I wonder if these are really just one owner

    That thought crossed my mind as well.

    It is most likely a Shoemart model folks are referring to. I do not see it on their website currently. They do have a Ravello, Color #8, and Black version up so you can take a look at the style.

    You might be thinking of someone else. My barrie size is 11.

    A cigar WT boot on the plaza sounds incredible, though.

    EDIT: Here's a picture. I wonder if these are happening again any time soon.

    Agreed. As I said before, I think I've only seen Uncle Mac post pictures of these.

    When one can afford to buy that many, the term proper care becomes incredibly subjective.

    I don't doubt that you are correct.

    Snuff suede unlike chukkas just arrived from NRO. Is it just me, or is the color a bit off? Seems awfully .. Well, brown. I seem to recall them being more orange-ish.

    Also, they're rather tight. I wear an 8 Barrie, so I went 8.5 for Leydon. How much will the suede stretch and loosen with wear?

    I can't answer you on the stretching, but my last two snuff purchases have been about that color.

    Nice you got your order from NRO? no sign from them yet except for an email saying my order shipped, but they did not provide tracking number.

    When did you order? Did they provide you a tracking number? I don't owe any suede aldens, but I really am considering now that I see them. I kinda like the brown color.
