    Your treatment looks like it turned the suede to nubuck!

    Yeah I'm kind of tempted to order cordovan PTB in black as I don't have a pair of black shoes

    ^I order an 8E from there, got them no problem. Think ordering from NRO is like rolling a dice.

    Can anyone comment on Plaza sizing relative to the Barrie or AE 5-last?

    I'm torn between the frans boone cigar plain toe models.
    On the one hand, I love the all day comfort and kick-around nature of the crepe soles.
    On the other hand, I love the variegated antique edgetrim of the leather soles.

    Go with the leather sole for cigar. If I'm getting a crepe sole, I would go full kick-around and get natural CXL or pebbled leather.
