14oz says 379x, while the pic of the boots were almost certainly Barrie.

I thought our resident experts would be able to shine further light.

I think I disagree. They don't look like Barrie based on that pic. Forefoot looks a bit wide and the waist looks a bit narrow for Barrie, IMHO.

The pair from 14oz, not the AOM version

A few new and a few old. Thought I'd share. Leathersoul Plaza #8 wingtips, Leffot Ravello Captoes on Grant, Brooks Brothers Snuff Tassels on Copley, and Leffot #8 Tankers on Barrie. All of the pants are from Epaulet.

Can't take my eyes off of these.  I think Plaza and #8 were meant for each other.

I don't think you need to limit it to #8. I think shoes and boots and Plaza were meant for each other.

Week 2 as construction boots. Even with cement on them they are still gorgeous.

Thanks @tifosi 

 

14oz did indeed confirm 379x, but, it would not be the first time a shop did not get a last right.

 

My comment was one last Hail Mary in regard to trying to get some finality…

 

Looks like I will find out next week.

How are you liking that model? I have almost pulled the trigger on the whiskey Harvard umpteen times. It seems like a good sub for Alden's LHS given how infrequent that model is available from Alden.

The thing that has held me back is a) more expensive and b) I keep hearing fit is a lot harder to match up than the Van last.

I have a feeling they will fit similarly.

 

@BenLeaman has boots on the Barrie and the 379X I believe.

Anyone know if the natural Chromexcel loafers are available anywhere besides Leffot? I can't seem to find any ....

Gentlemen,

 

I just heard back from Alden, thanks to an encouragement from @mdubs to go ahead and email them.

 

Very pleased and impressed with their timeliness and friendliness.

 

I asked them directly about the special makeup for 14 OZ in Berlin and no doubt about their response:

 

"Good Morning,

 

Thank you for your message.

 

It is our style number 44699C and is was made on the 379X last.

 

The 379X isn't used all that often, but it is similar to Barrie, Trubalance,

and Modified.

 

Hope this helps

Alden Shoe Co"

 

So, there you have it, straight from the horses mouth.  @Akeem @Handcuffed

 

This is actually very encouraging for me.
