    Great looking pair of boots, Sir. Looks highly versatile. I've always wondered about the Grant last but never had an opportunity to try it.

    Thank you very much and I am hoping so.

    Yes, looking at this picture I was always hesitant about Grant sizing. These work out perfectly at TTS.

    The Ravello and baby blue in your combo looks gorgeous. I happened upon that pairing by accident. Something about the light blue with your Ravello nst's that really makes them pop. Keep doing it Don L.

    I like your throwback nst's MrDV. The purple in your socks makes your feet look like your wearing two very stylish eggplants. Love the colour on the shoes. Was it close to the original after restoration? Any other info on them would be a bonus. Thanks.

    They look great on you man, glad they went to someone who is really enjoying them! It looks like the fit great on you. I replaced them with a 8E version of the same boot and found that it fits me better. Normally I'm a 8.5D brannock and 8 in barrie.

    Thanks again!

    That is strange because I measure the same and am the same Barrie size. I am slightly under 8.5 on the Brannock so that could be the difference. But hey...works out for both of us!

    In addition to adding to an already incredible collection, you are amassing a fine vintage selection. Keep'em coming MrDV! [​IMG]

    I tried a pair of NSTs on the grant and a George boot on plaza this summer at Alden on Madison and Leffot. Both lasts were great! I hope to have one of each down the road.
