    Congratulations on the birth of your child. The boots are nice but don't compare :)

    Gents, all around a great showing today! :) Keep up the beautiful shoes and posting. I particularly liked your Whiskey PTBs BK. :)

    I really like the pattern on the back of them...

    I only wore them momentarily to test their fit. Such a beautiful color, but they definitely have an odd shape in the toe box. Looks like a stinking egg or something.

    And finally, I think this is one of the Alden Kings (to me)... The Ravello Wingtip Boot. Barrie Last. Special narrow size. TheShoeMart.

    My older pair of these are now on their way back to me with a fresh sole. I am excited to see how they look as well.

    Awesome, Mike. They all look great but the WT boot really does stand out even among those incredible makeups.

    ^ Good going (as usual) Mike! Wingtip boots look truly special.

    I see what you mean re. the modified boots - what a blobby looking toebox!

    Mdubs,
    That's an awesome drop.
    I agree, ravello sw boots are pretty difficult to beat. Yours are so nice.
    The whiskey short wings and pt boots are pretty awesome as well.

    The wingtip boots take the cake. That modified last is not working for me, though.

    I find the Hampton to be pretty roomy (more so than plaza for sure). Barrie is a little more round and slightly roomier a 1/2 size down from the hampton last. Others may say differently though.

    @mdubs . Wow. You are a winner! How the heck did you score the ravello pt boots as seconds?! You paid a third of what everyone else had to pay! lucky lucky Mike.
