    Just saw those boots in the Leffot email, amazing makeup. My only hang up is the sole choice.

    Hahaha, figures. You'd take the over and thick socks though, right?

    I agree. Single flex and a 270 welt seem more dress shoe like to me. For boots I like a 360 and double sole or commando. While a great makeup I'd still prefer the B&M Grant WTB. And unlike the above post. I'm not to the point of collecting the same style in different lasts. :) As awesome as that would be.

    I'd be all over it but I think I need a 12E instead of a 12D... bummer.

    Great makeup, fun drop out of the blue.

    yeah i didnt notice the 270 welt. in retrospect the 270 and single flex welt is common on their plaza lasted makeups.

    dressy 270 welt + single leather outsole + dressy plaza =/= casual edge trim + casual metal eyelets + boot

    but with that said i almost bought a pair again..

    With the NST king boot on order that rules out the shoe...though barely...and I am on the Brixton pre-order...believe me thought the fact that I could have them by Saturday did make it tempting!

    Congrats! I think the wingtip pattern looks great on the Grant last. I also love me some Barrie last, but the other two look better in these photos; maybe it's the angle. All are great though and seem different enough from one another if you plan to keep all 3.

    Agree the Grant looks so different...wow congrats

    Holy fuck, those boots are amazing. Just bought a pair.

    NST is damn nice, too, but that Plaza makeup is literally perfect for me. I love the Plaza last, I love that medallion, I love the flex sole, and I love the single (or "thick 1.5", can't quite tell) sole.

    Call me crazy, but I bought a pair too.... After I just sold my leffot 8 tankers too.

    Now I have the B+M Grant wtb and Leffot plaza wtb to decide on. I agree that wingtip + plaza last + leather sole is perfect; one of my Grail makeups. So I had little hesitation ordering a pair. Glad that they had multiple 8.5D's for us both ;)

    Congrats on getting in on this killer make up. If I didn't already have Hallecks I would have jumped!
    As I did for today's Whiskey boots

    I love everything about the Leffot WTB except for the sole and welt. Would have preferred commando or double with a storm welt.

    The J.Gilbert Plaza #8 wingtip boot is exactly what you describe - only deviation is a different medallion and a 360 welt.

    360 welt and all eyelets (still great with hooks) on double waterlock would have made them perfect imo like the LS Cigar pair. Still a hell of a boot, the 8E and 8.5D boys were quick today so I didn't have to make a bad decision and get them haha. I need to figure out my Grant and Plaza sizing, too many great make ups lately

    I went for the NST as it is definitely one of my favorite makeups and I couldn't resist. Does anybody know why there wasn't a preorder for them? I thought there was a preorder for every single make up.

    I was so tempted to get both but it was going to be really hard for my pocket :p
