    I am TTS 9.5D.
    Snap - 9.5D
    Hampton - 9.5D

    My Alden for BB is 9.5D. The Snap last is slightly more snug than the Hampton, but, IMO, not enough to vary from TTS. I also have the Hampton-lasted color 8 shell captoe bal (straight tip) from TSM in 9.5D.

    How about we modify the question to: Whiskey, Ravello (light and dark, if you distinguish), Cigar, #8, or Black LWB? Rank or just give favorite.

    1. Color 8 - by far the most versatile and the patina is awesome!
    2. Ravello (dark)
    3. Black
    4. Cigar (I don't like mine much bc they're too light; hoping to darken them up some)
    5. Whiskey (I don't own a pair bc I'm not sure I would wear them much)

    In general. I will caveat that by saying I've never actually owned whiskey.

    I like whiskey, but it'll be a long time before I own a pair in it (if I ever do). In whiskey, I think I like:

    • PTB
    • LHS
    • chukka

    For the beverage, I like it neat or in an old fashioned, manhattan, sazerac, or mint julep. :)

    PSA: I heard from Yenni at JGilbert today. The color 8 NST boots on the Plaza have been produced and are slated to ship yet this week from Alden to JGilbert. This probably puts them at JGilbert the end of next week and in our respective homes the end of the following week. So ......... barring something unforeseen, there is an end in sight, even if a month or so late. :D
