great looking boats sir.
This is my experience as well. I wear an 8.5D in the LWBs but found 8.5D in the JCrew cap toe boot to be too tight. Going up to 9D in the JCrew is perfect for me. This is consistent with the other Alden cap toe boots I have, they seem tighter generally than the LWBs so I get the cap toe boots up .5 size.
To make it more interesting, I have found that with a leather sole corodovan wingtip boot 8.5D is comfortable. But when I tried a commando sole corodovan wingtip boot 8.5D was too tight.
CT barrie boots feel tighter to me as well but only when they're brand new. they fit fine after a couple of wears.
I have a pair of those very shooes. They are bison leather on plaza last NSTs and were sold by Alden of Carmel over ten years ago. They were offered in that brown and in black as well. To this day I wear the brown pair I got way back when. I wish I had gotten that shoe in black as well, but waited too long.
Alden of Carmel was the first to offer unique, custom make-ups, and they offered some incredibly beautiful make-ups. Many of those make-ups were on the plaza last. It always offered impeccable service and flawless product too.
[[/I] I was referring to the brown-colored shoes in the top two pictures, which I unsuccessfully tried to copy in to this response.
here's my pair. they were recrafted about a year ago. they came back darker than the original color but look and feel like new.
