I find sizing a little maddening and I found out the expensive way that you really need to try on to be sure. I would have thought my 2045 size would be my Barrie size also, but turns out the half size down fits great.
I have 2030 boots that work on my Barrie size, but I have found certain 2030 makeup are too big in that same size.
So, you're the dude who snagged that 2045 stitchdown Boons on Dr.Sole Cords. Congrats 👊🏽
Agree w/trying on for size. The build & kind of leather play a big factor. My 1035 Latigo Derbies were spot on @size8, but the 1035 Latigo Service boots version I tried felt more snug/narrower & had to size up 1/2.
The Black Bison had awesome texture__ got some heft to it__ thicker than CXL. Again, 8 would've fit if they were 2045 or 110 & not 1035🙄 Edited by IIIrd Icon - 6/4/16 at 9:28am
