    If they where the 10.5 D boot I got the last pair from TSM and they are on the way back. They should arrive Tuesday. I didn't care for the shade of Ravello on the NST boot they where much lighter than the pair of Chukkas I purchased from TSM earlier this year.

    Yes, I already have more than will fit in my shoe rack, which I didn't think could happen. Running out of space. Some people have kids and move to the suburbs - others have Alden's, I guess.

    Nice! What last are they on and how do you find they are fitting?

    Filmed in my town. Dave keeps his car collection in a warehouse nearby. Must say I do like those boots

    These cigar NST slip on loafers are on the Aberdeen last and fit true to size for me. I prefer an E width but D works fine for me just a little slugger.

    See Ya,

    No hampton yet. The aberdeen is almost perfect in my usual size, but I'd like to try just a little extra toe box room. I've had good luck with the AE 5 last, and these two seem the closest to it.

    Very tough choices here. Generally if you have a choice between whiskey, cigar and ravello in the same shoe, cigar and ravello are preferred due to versatility... If you like Aberdeen I would say get the ravello in order to get a diversity of lasts. I personally prefer the shape of the Barrie in NST and would go with whiskey or cigar if I were picking.

    Not sure if this is the answer to your question, but whenever I upload an iPhone photo it is sized as 200x400. I manually change that to 500x1000, which makes for a bigger photo of course.

    So I change this

    http://www.styleforum.net/content/type/61/id/123466/width/200/height/400

    to this

    http://www.styleforum.net/content/type/61/id/123466/width/500/height/1000

    But I assume the image resolution is constrained by the phone camera whatever SF does to compress uploads.

    While I have the NST in Aberdeen, I think it looks richer, fuller and more balanced on a Barrie last... Barrie would be my pic, then again, we all have our own preferences... Happy hunting!
