Unlined suede models on the barrie look and fit differently than various lined Barrie models such as PTB, LWB, etc.
Right on. AoC's pic and commentary below.http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/the_alden_of_carmel_story.htm#s_126
Nicely done.
It is a wonderful shoe in so many ways.
same size for me
What this means, as a practical matter, is that you bar lace very few models. I bar lace virtually every model - bal or blucher, odd or even**. IMO, it presents an overall cleaner look. Some see it differently and I have no problem with that.** With odd eyelets, I use a single diagonal pass in the lacing - at the very top - and it's less noticeable due to the bows and shoelace ends. In many models, particularly bals, it is not noticeable at all.
Wonderful.If forced to choose, I would take this stock model over nearly every model offered on a limited run basis.
I would suggest trying on the Chambord II before buying it. I found the ankle area to be exceptionally wide - indeed, for me, too wide.
I was there almost exactly one year ago. They had almost no shell at that time too.
Purchased from same retailer?
