What has felt like a very long week has come to an end! Happily heading home for a 3 day holiday weekend.

Broke the cigar LWBs out of hibernation for this trip. Tonight may be their first wear in months...
What can I say, I'm a boot guy.

Awesome! I have the same bag in navy.

Unionmade has something similar with commando sole. But only size 11 is available.

Today... interesting how each shoe has such distinct folds..

I apologize for repeatedly asking about sizing help, as I am unable to get to an Alden store. So I am interested in a few different pairs of Alden x J.Crew shoes: the leather longwings and the cordovan captoe boots, both of which are on the Barrie last. Because both are out of stock in my size, I've been looking secondhand for these shoes, but I'm hesitant to pull the trigger because of sizing, primarily the width of shoes around the mid-foot and toe box.

 

For reference, I am between an 8.5D/E on Brannock. I wear 8E on Allen Edmond's 5-last, UK7.5 on Carmina's Rain last, 8 in Clark Desert Boots, and size 9 in Nike Killshot 2's. I am unsure whether to look for size 8 in the Alden x J.Crew Barrie last or size 8.5. Again, the width is my primary concern. I've also read that J.Crew's Barrie last runs more true to size than a typical Barrie lasted shoe. Is this true enough so that I shouldn't size down? Additionally, since shell doesn't stretch much, would I potentially be better off with 8.5 for shell and a size 8 for leather?

 

Again, I apologize for continuously asking this question, but I'm trying to get as best of an idea as I can before pulling the trigger. Thank you in advance for everyone's help!

If what I highlighted in bold is accurate, you will need 8D in the leather LWBs (tobacco waxed?) and 8.5D in the Perf Cap Toe color 8 (shell) boots.  J Crew doesn't offer anything other than D width in their Alden make-ups, so this rec should be your best option.  Good luck!  (BTW, I have both of these pairs in the same size but the LWBs feel much more roomy [wider] than the boots.)

Thank you! From other feedback I've received and read, this seems to be the consensus. And yes, I was referring to the tobacco waxed LWB. If you don't mind me asking, how does the tobacco color compare to the stock photos?
