Cigar in the sun:
Also, on the subject of confusing sizing issues, how far off does everyone consider the Trubalance from the Barrie? For me, the TB in 10.5D is a nearly perfect fit; the Barrie in 10.5D feels slightly too short and too narrow. I'm wondering if it's possibly a difference in materials (CXL on TB and cordovan on Barrie), or if the lasts are different enough to warrant different sizes. Is anyone else in the same boat, or do you all just size both the same?
With chrmxl I think I need a C width when compared to Barrie sizing. My Barrie size is slightly roomy, so I think I might also be able to go done a half size also. ie... Barrie 10d, trubalance 9.5d. I've never actually tried it but I think it would work. My 403 is pretty loose but very comfortable with thicker socks.
