    Got my Lindricks through edubs - they are phenomenal. I try to be brand agnostic - Alden, C&J, and Carmina all make great shell models (and some I don't care for).

    Awesome makeup. I'm looking at a plaza captoe from J. Gilbert as well. How does plaza sizing compare to Barrie and Trubalance? I have an Indy trubalance in 13D that fits awesome and then a handful of Barrie boots (JCrew captoe and JCrew suede chukka) that are 13D that are just a tad tight (width?) but I can wear okay. I'm thinking I may need to go with a 13.5e or 14D for Plaza? Do you know if J. Gilbert has a return policy?

    the more i see the plaza captoe boot the more i like it.
    I didn't really understand the fuss that was made about the plaza at first, mostly because of the models i saw.
    It seems to look very different in different photos, and whilst the idea of a chisel toe is not something it really is minimal.

    I defininitly have a strong for a grant or a plaza shell captoe. Would love to see more picture comparing the two from different angles.

    My first Alden's were the 990's, then I got a pair Alden LWB's, both are really nice shoes. Then I found out that Crockett & Jones made shell cordovan shoes for Ralph Lauren, so I bought the wingtips and the PTB's which are also very good shoes. My best suggestion would be to buy them all.

    Despite receiving my Ravello LWBs last night, I went with my Marlows today. The Marlows are another fantastic shoe and I actually really like the Color of the Marlows, as it is an almost in between Ravello and Cigar (maybe an older Cigar look). The detail work on them is very exquisite as well. They come very stiff and take quite a while to break in. I am still breaking mine in. Definitely wait for a RL sale or see if you can get a discount through here or something. Here they are next to my Ravellos (so I don't get boo'd from here)...
