    Also, aside from Shoemart, what are other reputable sites to order from? Shoemart has been good to me, especially with no tax or shipping fees, but certain items I want are not available in my size.

    anyone here have the indy shoe?

    i'm considering them in natural. i have boots, but want a casual shoe for when i don't want to wear a boot, and i'm not really a loafer/boat shoe type.

    if anyone here has them and has a pic of them on, i'd love to see them. been kicking this around for a few weeks and wanna see them on before the trigger is pulled.

    So, who picked up the Cigar Plaza Wingtip boots on the 'bay? Those are gorgeous. And who's going to pick up the Cigar Barrie Wingtip boot?
    Wondering the same thing...Just bought the Ravello boots from Epaulet and the Cordovan Tanker in #8 from Context so couldn't really justify the Plaza wingtips but man o' man...I really like the way the Plaza last fits.

    [​IMG] Wasn't aware that that was on the radar... unless you mean the Tankers. A cordo-Roy just sounds like another name for the PTBoot that LS has been selling for some time. Those ravello wingtips are special, but those Cigar plaza wingtips were something else, not something you see very often. I drew my inspiration for the natural wingtip boots from that boot, with the hope that after many years of wear it will be a similar shade, although obviously it won't have the lustre of cordovan. Congrats to whoever won those boots.

    I very nearly did, but decided I want my boots to have speedhooks. those were perfect, except for that detail

    Ya...corrected my post to say "tankers" instead of Roy...
    I think I'm going to regret not pulling the trigger on those Plaza Wing Tips though...correction. I DO regret not pulling the trigger.
