Just ordered a pair of Lindricks.
Based on what I see here if you wear Alden Barrie Last 11 D the Lindrick should be fine in 11 1/2 correct?
Yeah I checked a bit more and it appears some of the core SF users went 1/2 down or Barrie, so I went ahead cancelled the initial order of 11 1/2 D and went with a size 11 D instead.
Yeah, I got the impression that Black is Calf and Brown is Cordovan.
I went with Brown.
Closed laced shoes are called oxfords or balmorals.
Open laced shoes are derbies or bluchers (or in some cases, Gibsons).
Both can be plain toed, cap toed, wingtip brogues, semi-brogues, etc.
Ah, ok. I've had mine for 2 months now and I actually slipped and fell with them yesterday on a street corner. The pavement was dry but very smooth and I was just crossing the street - I'm still not sure what happened. I'm probably going to get them topy'd soon.
Interesting to know if anyone else has had a similar issue.
I was actually able to do as you suggested.
I refreshed the site and eventually a size 11 1/5 became availible.
After reading this thread a bit more I'm glad I was able to get both sizes.
It does appear they are a bit shorter and narrower than the Alden Barrie Last and I may just require that 11 1/2 D size after all.
Thanks for the advice.
