I don't think Alden makes any LWBs that are not on the Barrie last, unless it's a custom order (there's a forumer who had 5 pairs of #8 LWBs custom made in the Grant last).
For those who are on the fence about these gloves, don't hesitate -- these gloves are wonderfully soft, warm, and sharp-looking. I'm sure they will last me many winters.

Ravello SWBs  looking very good. What do you do for the winter commute?
Very nice. I've come to appreciate commando soles over leather soles on boots.
For sale is a pair of Alden Navy Suede Unlined plain toe blucher, size 8.5D in Barrie last. I bought them from a fellow forumer a few months ago but did not get around to wearing them much. See the original listing here. Beautiful, rich navy suede, great for the spring and summer. As far as I know, the suede has not been treated with any protective coating.   The first few photos are from the original listing. I had Topys installed on the front soles (see the last 2...
