Super helpful...Thanks so much for the advice. I know Aldens don't seem to be in favor on this thread, but I wear a 10.5D on Alden's Plaza/Hampton/Leydon lasts and have found a 10D in Barrie lasted shoes somewhat unwearable because of the wide bulbous nature of that last and the wide heel cup. So would that translate to either 43.5 or 43? Would either the U or F lasts work better on either of the two pairs of shoes I initially posted?I would say I have regular width...
Looking to purchase my first pair of MTO Vass after reading through this amazing thread. I am really liking one of the following two styles: or Any thoughts from the experts here? Also, what would you guys recommend re: last and sizing? I am TTS 10.5D US. Most importantly, how do I figure out what my calf/suede or even shell color options might be? Are there any other options (no matter how small) that more knowledgeable folks than I would recommend to make this...

Make this a saddle oxford in #8 on Leydon and I am in as well.
RKD, tell me about it. None too happy. But you are right, someone else is going to luck out and I'd rather it be an Alden aficionado than some random Ebayer.
Sorry for the PSA, but have slowly come to the realization that Barrie lasted shoes don't work for my feet. I have the long since sold out #4/Black saddle bluchers in size 10D from Leathersoul that I am parting with. Worn exactly 3 times to the office, they are in pristine shape. Looking to get $500 or best offer and can circulate pics. PM me if interested. http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2011/01/13/alden-shoes-4black-saddle-blucher-lsw/
I would generally describe the shoe as substantial but definitely refined. I could easily wear them with a khaki summer suit and then jeans in the fall. Carmina lasts strike me as really versatile and could easily be dressed up or down.And you are right, I sized down from a 10.5D US (Alden Plaza, TTS, etc) to 9.5 in the Carminas. But it may differ for you depending on your feet.
Cross post from Epaulet thread... Rocking Carmina navy suede plain toes for the first time today with my Cramerton's. Obviously this combo is an easy match. These Carmina's are ridiculously nice -- don't sleep on them. Everyone should have navy suede in their arsenal. Well played, Mike.
