By the way, are the wing tip boots on the Barrie last? And do you know if they have D widths? I guess I should just give them a call...

Hi, they are on the military (379x) last. Fits more or less like the barrie with a round nose. No d models.

Gorgeous boots - I saw a pair in person at Leffot, and they are stunning.

Nice LWBs, and agreed, DC is definitely one of the best Alden shops out there.

Black shell is so underrated it's ridiculous.

The finished areas of the welt look great - the pix are harsher than the reality...

 

 

Apologies for the soul-less office environment - better shots at some point...

Congrats! Alden's snuff suede is fantastic.

Without going back and searching, I believe that these were not on barrie and there were only E's? 379X last? Or something like that.

Correct. 379X last, E widths only.

379x fits similar to barrie but with a narrow waist and high arch support. more like a combo of barrie/modified last. my fat feet could not take the extra arch support.

The epaulet and leffot boots are the last 2 makeups they will be doing that has black shell/antique edging.

If you hear otherwise, I am in.

I was under the same impression as well, however I spoke to a store yesterday and they seem confident black shell + antique is still possible. I'll confirm it and will add you to the list if it's possible!

Looking to figure out plaza last boot sizing:

My brannock size is between 7E-7EE (closer to EE). 
 
I unfortunately only have the option for 7E or 7.5D or E (Can't do 7EE otherwise that would be my best option)
 
For reference, 
7.5D Grant Captoe boots are probably a bit long and a little tight width wise
7.5E Grant Captoe boots feel even roomer length wise and just right width wise.
7D Plaza boot is very tight width wise (can't really tell length wise, but seem just right)
6.5E UK C&J 325, more then enough length, just enough width, slightly tight on right foot
 
 
Appreciate any advice!

I'd go either 7E on plaza or even 7.5E, I think 7E will likely be the better choice. The grant in 7.5E is just a tad longer than plaza in the same size, and since the grant is too long, 7E in plaza sounds just about right.

What is the model again?  I thought it was #8 with black edge Plaza CT.

Thanks!  

 

I think I'll go with the 7E.  I tried a plaza 7E and it was just snug enough where the tip of my outside toes were touching, should be ok after some where in.

Actually there are two gMTOs I'm trying to put together:

1.) Color 8 plaza captoe boot, all metal eyelets, flat 270 degree welt, black edge, double leather sole
2.) Black shell barrie Indy boot, metal eyelets + hooks, 360 split welt with antique edge, commando sole

Was the plaza you tried shell or other material? It depends on how you like your shoes to fit (snug or loose) but I would not expect/depend on stretch with wear, especially with shell. The cork footbed will settle after break in and your feet will drop a bit into the shoe, but usually that's not significant enough to alter the fit. In my experience suede and CXL will stretch with wear, some people will even size down to compensate, but shell will never stretch. So if you are ok with the outside toes touching, then 7E is fine, otherwise I'd size up to 7.5E.

I don't like tight shoes.
I would try 7.5E plaza.

Fantastic boots Mike. Your boots look even crispier than Tifosi's.
