    Finally joined the DC cap toe "club". They were my love at first "sight".

    Ok, it was someone's picture.

    Thank you, @Ironclad I like being called an "Alden Lover"

    I actually moved my previous fav. J Crew PCT for this, not regrets what so ever.

    Yeah, next on my list of wants is a Plaza last cap toe boot, color 8, black edge, double leather soles, and all eyelets. I would be totally ok with the commando and speed hooks though. If she ran it I would have to put a deposit down.

    This from LS with no hooks for me, the double leather +270 flat welt is great too. @inn8chiro lets make it happen [​IMG]

    Sam, you look boss in those boots! They didn't fit my feet well so I'm glad to see you getting better use of them.

    If comfort is what you want, you will definitely get it with these soles. I have the snuff suede version they recently posted and love them. I've only had them a few weeks but I have been surprised with how often I've been wearing them in that time.

    I'd be all over this boot, hooks or not. Consider me down if you can get it made up

    Your Cigar Cap Toe Boots are looking superb. Congratulations on your acquisition. Enjoy your new boots in good health!


    Looking good today in your Ravello LWBs. I would be into those boots if I didn't already have the 4060's.

    I think that's the main issue, the 4060 is a pretty popular make up so many who wanted a cap toe already own it. Though I do think maybe enough people out there could want the plaza cap toe to justify a small run. Lasts not named Barrie do seem to be gaining more interest as of late, with the release of some plaza boots from Leffot and the recent Citishoes tanker as well as several newer Grant offerings.

    Fantastic boot! I really like the Plaza last, would take one each in #8, cigar, ravello and whiskey.

    I'm sorta shocked that the Epaulet Alt Wein in Color 8 are still in stock in a nice selection of sizes.

    The curse of the influx in antique edge make ups in the past 6 months.

    I am ok with that, I only want one. The Leffot Walter boot is on my list of wants too as my first black shoe, or something similar for casual use.

    I may be unloading my 7.5E when they come in if you really are interested.
