For those of you that might own two of the same model shoe, one in calfskin & one in shell, do you change the size?  I know that with shell versions tend to be a bit roomier, but is it enough to warrant a size change?   {apologies for all of the questions lately}
 I've decided on all of the other details of my MTO outside of the sole/welt.  It's between a double butyl sole w/ split reverse, a single butyl sole w/ split reverse (think Neumok's), or a single butyl sole w/ flat welt. 
lol, no worries.  I do find the uncle/nephew thing to be very creepy, to put it lightly. 
Thank you so much!  Are those Aldens or AE's?

I guess the double butyl sole with a flat welt would be what's on the Dalton boot....
So, I went and got fitted in the MacNeil at my local AE store....10.5B.  They didn't have that size in the MacNeil, but they did in a tassel loafer on the same last.  The one thing I noticed while having the D-width MacNeil on was that it looked suuuuper wide compared to the B-width shoe on my other foot.  I realize that the double oak sole adds some "heft" to the shoe, and that it will likely be less tank-like in the appropriate width.   Now, to my main question.  I'm...
