    Few differences. If anything, I find the Plaza to have a bit more space in the toe box , but not by much. At least that is my experience. For the M-75, get your Plaza size.

    I know these are on the M-75 by way of direct email communications with Alden. FWIW, I have a contact person at Alden HQ that is wonderful in responding to my requests for information and confirmation. :nodding:

    I also have the BB version in black shell. :D

    Thanks. That's why I said I would trust you over the reviewers. :nodding:

    These are awesome. The shortwing blucher in any shell is one of Aldens top offerengs imo.

    It's a sexy shoe in black shell :slayer:

    Nice jeans. Are those Momo 702's? They look almost black (maybe they are).

    I'm pretty new here, but I would start with the 990 PTB. I don't know what all of those shoes you listed are, so maybe you already have something similar.

    Do you mean who owns it or who sells it?

    I just got a pair like a week ago from Hunt Club clothiers in Cincinnati.

    I also got a LWB from Hunt Club a week ago. Speaking of which, they said the next sale will be in July.

    I don't want to steal Mike's thunder. He said they'd be going up Friday.
    It's worth checking for.

    Thanks SevenFTG. That is very helpful. The BB version may be my next acquisition. I would like to pick up a pair on the plaza; or the m75 in this case.
