    I believe so. I ordered the #8 PCT boots when they had that working 20% off code, and my card hasn't been charged yet. My size was on back order and they're supposed to be in by Sep 12, so we'll see next week if that happens.

    Not black or plain toe - that's actually a cigar captoe boot on the grant last with commando soles. Purchased from Alden DC. The grant last makes that boot look pretty sleek. They sell it in black and color 8. Alden NYC and Shoe Mart sell versions on double leather soles in black and color 8. Overall the straight tip captoe boot is a great model that a lot of people on the thread own...

    Denim looks fantastic with the color 8 PTBs. Nicely paired.

    Wow, I can't believe how dark that Cigar is. It looks sublime. It almost looks like a black plain toe to me. I searched the shoe mart, and are these the shoes you are alluding to?

    If so, i've had my eyes on those for a little while now. But I might go for a pair of perforated cap toe boots first, a little bit more casual, which is how I would use them.

    There is nothing about these saddles that I don't love. Antique welt, multi-color heel, absolutely gorgeous color 8. Man these are nice.

    Were they the same ones here?

    I'm looking into these, and i'm hoping these are a more of a brown vs the orange everybody has been saying they are.

    Alcibiades those Saddle Oxfords are a work of art. They're perfect!

    Alcibiades, a truly wonderful makeup sir. Shawnc was correct on every point.
