    did you buy the cigar chukkas and the ravello wingtip?

    Yes Sir, I bought the Cigar Chukka Boot and the Ravello NST Boot (I'm not worthy for wingtip yet).
    I was deciding on only choosing one but I'll keep both... now that I've seen some of your pics.

    are these on barrie last? They look unusually elongated,almost makes me want to get a pair of chukkas in cigar.

    cigar chukkas are on the barrie last

    I was thinking the same thing. I also wondered if they are a fairly small size, like an 8 or something, because the dimensions look great, nice and tidy. Whereas I owned the cigar chukkas for a year and a half in 9.5 before I sold them because they looked like gorgeous clown shoes.

    barrie last size 9D

    I love the 6-eye chukka too. It cuts down on the huge expanse of shiny leather up front. The 6-eye is probably what I'll go for as an alternative to the standard.

    Which last are these 6 eyelet chukkas made on? Do they have a storm welt? Where did you buy them from?

    The blue looks great. I wish I could justify them for myself, but already having the tan and dark brown, my wife would kill me.
