    Congrats on your new Whiskey Wingtip Boots. They look superb!!!
    Don, your tankers are looking great. The plaza is a special last for the tanker boot.
    They are coming along tremendously!
    Lovely looking Wingtip Bluchers R!
    Those are looking great and just a killer pairing with those trousers!
    It definitely was a day full of Tanker love! Looking great! -Mike

    Congrats on your two new CXL Boots. Those Perf Tips are looking very good and should be very comfy and supportive for you. Enjoy them both!
    Awesome news Sam! Funny considering our recent conversation. Hope all who ordered it enjoy it and all its Plaza-Y goodness.
    Those are still as cool as always Don!
    Ha! Alternating is important. But they are looking superb!
    Speaking of Whiskey. Your Chucks are looking very good! Enjoy them!
    Looking great Burz! I enjoy your WW contribution! :)
    Those boots should work for your meeting. Hope that they went well and that you kept dry.
    Looking very good in your Tan Suede Chukka Boots! Hope that you had an equally comfortable and relaxing day.
    Your Naval Boots are looking stunning. The shell and welt color compliment one another terrifically.
    Wow, it's pretty much hard to go wrong with the Plaza Last and Black Shell. These are absolutely no exception to that. They look soo good. Enjoy them!
    Congratulations on your newly found sun! We had an amazing week in San Diego. These Cigars are looking terrific in the sun. Enjoy them!!
    Marv, your pictures are always so amazing. It looks freakishly cold there bud, so keep warm!!! Those Black Graintrippers are looking stellar! -Mike

    Dang Don, this Brown/Purple/Ravello combo is superb. Those Ravello NSTs are just absolutely magnificent!
    I don't think there is any way to conjur up an argument that either of those are not amazing looking. They are both fantastic in their own ways.
    Your boots are looking good and the great thing about Alden is that they have so many beautiful makeups on a combo of lasts and we get to chose between awesome designs.
    Nay.
    I personally don't think that even a 975 would look good with a tux. The color and the broguing just would detract too much from the formality associated with a tuxedo.
    Your Àlden LWBs are looking superb. Such a beautiful model.
    Looking good in your Indy boots. Sometimes the original designs are the best!
    Both your Ocho and your Brown CXL makeups are looking superb! Hope that you had two great days! -Mike

    Your new Indy Boots are looking very good. The natural edge and commando are an interesting contrast.
    Those Chukkas are just lovely. I saw those a few years back. Reminds me a lot of the LeatherSoul 8 year anniversary makeup, which was a Color 8 Chukka on Antique Double Leather Souls. Looking good sir!
    It's funny because we hardly ever seen cxl tassels in general. My Brooks sales rep has an older pair done by BB in Natty cxl and they are just exquisite. These are no exception. Enjoy them!
    Zippy, your Cigar Brixtons are just absolutely amazing. Nothing else I can really say beyond that except that I miss boots!
    Don, these Chocolate Suede Tankers are just looking super good. Can't wait to add my pair into my rotation someday soon.
    Your Beams Boots are looking very good. Don't see a ton of Beams makeups here, but they have a slew of rad makeups. That's a pretty interesting thing you have hanging off your belt. :)
    I saw Prez post the chart, but to directly answer your question. The difference is 3/16". Kathy would tell you 1/4"... ;-) -Mike
