I cannot answer the question as to the marlow. Barrie is Alden's second fullest and widest last. It is so roomy that most people take 1/2 smaller size in shoes or boots on the barrie last than the brannon device identifies as their proper shoe size. For example, my brannon size is 7.5 e. I wear a 7E in barrie - lasted shoes. The barrie is so full I can also very comfortably wear a 7.5d in barrie lasted shoes.Aberdeen is Alden's most narrow last. Barrie is full in the...
Being always on the lookout for cordovan plain toe bluchers that are more dressy to wear with suits, I called Harrisons in the hopes that, even though I need a 7.5E which a store is unlikely to order for a specialty run, I might be pleasantly surprised with a decision to make.

You should do what you want.
Whatever your experience, the poster to whom I was responding cannot use the website's ordering system.  That was the point of his inquiry.  I guess he could email, as opposed to speak to someone, but the you know you will get the canned policy that way.  You might get the canned policy by a more personal touch as well, but my experience is otherwise.  You give a call, the worse that can happen is you don't get what you want.  The best is you do.
