    Dilemma
    Most probably I will get a pair of cigar plain toe boot and whiskey LWB at the end of the year.
    But now I have seen a pair of cigar LWB happened to be my size........
    I am not sure to get it or not...........
    If you could only choose 2 out of these 3, which 2 will you choose?

    You seem partial to all three. Go with what's available in your size now

    Unless you have preordered, or are on some type of priority list, the likelihood of this happening is almost 0%.

    In this order
    1. cigar LWB
    2. cigar boot
    3. whiskey LWB

    The whiskey LWB - a shoe which I own - would be a very, very, very, distant third.

    In my very limited experience with shell cordovan, whiskey seems to bring your outfit (earth-tone chinos) infront of the stage. It gives a nice contrast, especially when the sun is out.

    The entire ensemble is very nice. Monks get little dicussion on here. I have the shoes in question and they show off the beauties of shell as good as, if not better than, any other style. :nodding:

    Those are drop dead gorgeous......well done!

    Now, I just have to hope that boots like this come in narrow widths at some point in the future.
