Well I only have experience with the plaza and Barrie last and both fit me great.

Have not tried the Leydon last yet...

If you know the Barrie works great for you and you don't have an Alden retailer conveniently located, then I suggest you go for the PTB personally. Fit is the king.

I'm curious to see where this ends up. The pair needs a resole and looks heavily worn albeit with patina.

I think it was the direct light from the sunset that caused the orange cast.
They are great bad weather shoes. I was wearing mine last night to meet some coworkers at a little grimy dive bar. Lots of spilling and sticky floors smile.gif

Anyone have heel slippage issues when wearing unlined barrie shoes? I already suffer from some (I have narrow heels) when wearing most Barrie's - concerned that the unlined will result in more heel space... Thoughts?

My CXL unlined dovers are a bit loose in the heel but no slippage.

 

On an unrelated note, I am looking

My unlined CXL dovers are a bit loose in the heel compared to my #8 LWB but no heel slippage.

 

On an unrelated note, I am hoping to add my first pair of LHS to my collection.  How does the Van last vs. Barrie last in the same size compare in terms of length?  Thanks in advance.

The shoes are built on the same last, which implies the same internal volume - lined or unlined. The only difference being when you can't last a leather very tightly (eg Shell). Narrow heels and the Barrie last don't mix. Fit is key, consider something else.

The Van last fits short in the toe box relative to the Barrie. In fact, the two lasts aren't really comparable in any way. The Van is a "try before you buy" last.
