    Thanks for the feedback, everybody.


    After some trial and error, I've sold my shells and started fresh.

    I currently have a LWB and LHS on the way. Both are #8. When I wear suits, I go with a black bal. I'd still like a boot, and I'm hesitant to get another color 8, but I never wear the black shoes I currently have. Cigar or ravello would be an option, except finding cigar seems to be on par with finding a unicorn or sasquatch.

    Cigar or Ravello chukka or PTB would be good options, IMO. Also, either one of these models in color 8 (if you stick with color 8) would serve you well.

    I personally LOVE my color 8 BB PTBs. They are very different from the stock (style 990) PTBs, and have amazing versatility (jeans all the way up to suit - esp since there's no storm welt, and the last has Barrie-like fit, yet is noticeably sleeker).

    Sevenfoldtieguy turned me onto these and I'm extremely grateful. You should give them a shot. Brooks carries them, and stock is limited, so if you don't see 9.5D on the website, you can call a store and have them run a national stock check.

    Speaking of Alden for BB models .... They just restocked their captoe bluchers on the Snap last as well (they haven't even offered them for the last few months). The color 8 Alden for BB PTB and captoe blucher are two of my favorites.

    Thanks to Yenni at J. Gilbert, I now have a pair of Cigar Indys. I was on the waitlist for their next order and and she contacted me that someone just backed out of the last order. Going to be hard to explain to the wife as I recently picked up Ravello LWBs off B&S as well. First world problems...

    I'm sure you could still work out phone/email ordering somehow. And he's currently traveling, so perhaps that's also why it may have been taken down.
