    I'm VERY surprised that tifosi is even considering something with out STITCHING on the toes [​IMG]

    You can't go wrong with anything in #8

    Good one, Tampa. I'm slowly working my way to plain toe!

    I agree 100% with that second statement.

    I've got to second Tampatravel on his choice of the #8 ptb's as a good all rounder. I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest some LWB's in any colour you can find as an alternative. Otherwise, anything in Alden shell cordovan will be accepted with open arms on this thread. Good luck.

    Look, Tampa...no stitching! LOL. Unless you count the stitching to attach the cap!

    Thanks, Be!

    You have fit issues with the Grant, sazon? Or do you just not like the shape?
