    Tough one. #8PTB or #8gunboat

    I think the #8 gunboat wins by a hair.

    No, I changed my mind. #8 PTB wins.

    color 8 NST, although it would really have to be black cord NST, color 8 cord NST and ravello NST boot.

    The three pair of identical shoes reminds me of an acquaintance I once knew who long ago returned to Europe. He was accomplished, very particular, precise, and a hip, downtown (East Village)-NYC type whose wardrobe consisted of seven black fine wool suits, seven white dress shirts, black dress socks and seven pair of black plain toe bluchers. This was before I was Aldenized so I do not know the make of the shoes, but I am sure they were cordovan - they had the tell-tale cordovan glassy shine (all of the shoes were gleaming at all times) and they were heavy, big-ass bluchers. His summer wear was the same except he did have black short pants for the weekends that he wore with either the white dress shirts or a white t-shirt and his bluchers without socks. The suits and shirts were all identical to one another and were tailor-made and of the highest quality. He replaced all of them once each year. When I got to know him, I asked him why about his wardrobe. He said he wanted to look great, but put as little effort as possible into doing so.
