    Uncle, are those NST Barrie or Aberdeen?

    They look a lot better than the cigar NST I owned...

    I think I'll stick to my plan to get a cigar LWB, but these pictures are very compelling. Please don't wait a few months to wear them.

    New suede addition to the family, lined snuff suede PTB on flexwelt sole (barrie last). These are available at a handful of dealers this spring, I went with Need Supply and used the 10% SF code.

    And my small suede family. Snuff PTB on flexwelt (barrie), unlined tan flexwelt chukka, #1494 (leydon) and snuff lined chukka on crepe (barrie). PTB's came in this week, #1494's are about 5 yrs old and the snuff crepe chukka are about 3 months old.

    Fantastic! My shell boots don't see much wear after May. We were in the high 90's last week but this week was quite cool in Boston, making it perfect shell boot weather. Gorgeous boot and imagery MrDV as usual.

    Nice cigar shells Uncle... I think the NSTs look so much nicer on the Barrie Last, rather than the Aberdeen like the ones I have... I will be on the hunt!

    No disrespect to owners of NSTs on the Aberdeen, but I tend to agree. Plaza NSTs look pretty good as well.

    I'd like NSTs so much better if they removed the "ST". Something about that stitch down the toe doesn't work for me.

    Between the Barrie and Plaza lasts; which one do you guys think is a better profile for a denim/workwear aesthetic? I want a wwii service boot style, but not so dressy that it looks weird (if that makes sense).

    Thx for any input

    I'd prefer them without the "N". Damn Norwegians... I'm kidding. Bet that's the first time anyone has said a negative thing about Norwegians, ever. Well, unless you are Swedish I guess.

    Mr.Ewing the plaza is my favorite last. IMO it's aesthetics work for nearly all make ups,with that said for denim either will be fine, it comes down to personal preference.

    Barrie. Plaza looks too dressy for denim.
