    Most likely. Buy them and see; you'll be able to get most of your scratch back on the B/S with those. I am almost your exact size. I bought and returned the grant cap toes in black awhile back in 10.5 - I may have been able to go 10D...

    I wore my new Cigar boots last night, got a whole bunch of compliments. Awesome. Wearing my Leffot Indy boots on commando soles today. After wearing the stiffer cordovan all day yesterday, the softer more broken in brown cowhide feels a lot more appropriate for Sunday...

    If you want the exact same 56" flat waxed laces that came with your shell or special makeup boots, you can order them (by phone) from the Madison Ave store. $6 per pair I believe, and they will ship.

    When I ordered the Day Trippers from Leffot their suggestion was "In general the Grant last sizing is the same as the Barrie and TruBalance."

    Of course they have yet to arrive so I may be stuffed.

    The Indy boot looks great - the stitching does not look at all bad, very understated. What make of dressing do you use on these? Thanks...

    I'm looking at the Double Monk Strap Shell Carmina's at epaulet and possibly a pair of #8 Shell Indy boots.

    Leffot Greenwich boot in reverse chamois. Loving these right now, all the appearence of suede but just a little oilier, less delicate

    Definitely interested in picking this up from Leffot... don't think my wallet can handle it at this point. Great looking boot though...
