1) it is common for the unlined PTB to run tight? or  2) whether I can expect the unlined/CXL to give more than most shoes and allow some more room as they break in? 

 

 

They're not uncomfortable, but as you can see in the picture--the eyelets are pretty far apart.  Too far?

 

FYI, I am 11.5 D in Leydon (suede PTB and chukka) and 11 C in Indy, and went with 11 D on these CXL PTBs.  These are my first try w/ Barrie. 

 

Well, I'm sure you'll get more authoritative opinions than mine, but the CXL should give some.  An It seems like an 11D would be the right choice for someone who wears an 11 C in TrueBalance.

 

Are they "these seem a tad tight" or "hmmm...I want these to work but they're kinda tight..."  That last and a blucher design should be pretty forgiving IMHO...

Just sold my Indy 401, how shall I match for the Oregon Hill Indy? To me it's a great versatile work boot for most occasions

401 is black calf, oregon is an earthy green rough out chamois. Pretty different animal if you ask me

They've got a dark chocolate brown reverse chamois that looks pretty darn amazing too...

Indeed I didn't wear the 401 out of office, just tried 2 times and found I'm not fond of black shoes.

I'm one mostly in indigo jeans, as no dress code required.

Very tempting exclusive design while leaned towards Commando version for better all weather traction

I'm fairly new to Alden, but the Oregon Hill Indy was my first acquisition. (Glad to see my size is not available now that it is on sale). I absolutely love this boot. It's very substantial and is easily noticed. I receive a lot of compliments on it. I think the only Indy I might like better would be in shell Cigar, which I missed out on recently (btw, I'm a 9D in Barrie if anyone wants to rid themselves that terrible makeup.....).rolleyes.gif

Not sure about all of the other questions, but the distance for the eyelets look within the range of what I would consider to be "normal." They are not terribly different than what I get on my 990 PTB. The space, if anything, is less than what I get on my LWB, also on the Barrie last. The LWB are certainly wider for me than my PTB. Bluchers are more accommodating in this area than the balmorals.

I used to be self conscious about my wide lacing gap, too. I've just embraced it.

Yours look fine. Enjoy them.

That is the beauty of Shell Cordovan right there. It just gets nicer with each step we take.
You should be. All Alden stock models are exquisite. They are tried and true and stock models for a reason. Enjoy your 9751's in good health.

Boots are looking good and that is a healthy looking lawn you got going on there!
The Mac Attack strikes again. Those Ravello Tassel loafers are a thing of beauty. They are nicely paired with your ensemble including the best of argyles. Hope that they took good care of you today. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Those look to me to be a Burnished Tan Calfskin V-Tip Tassel Loafer. A pretty cool model and it is model number 6040. For more specifics, you can E-mail Alden's general account and see if they can backfill you more.
