I do not think so...its just that since I had the opportunity to specify an exact size I took the liberty to do so....
I had been sized by the guys at Alden SF as an EE on the trubalance...and so went with that when I had the opportunity on the barrie..
Alas, they are a tad too wide...not enough t to make them unwearable...but enough that I wished I had stuck with my normal Barrie sizing.
I was also told (by Alden SF) when boots/shoes get recrafted by Alden they typically come back more narrow...??
