Is it possible that different boots from different Alden distributors on the same last fit different?

 

I recently got some 4075H black cap toe boots from Alden of San Fransisco and the 9D on the barrie last on these fit me perfect. However when I try on the JCrew Color 8 cordovan boots in the 9D on the same barrie last, they are very tight and the 9.5D on these is what is comfortable on me.

 

Thoughts?

I apologize.. Did not realize that was discussed at length here.. In my defense, there are just so many posts on this thread it is really difficult to keep track of the posts unless you frequent this thread on a daily basis.

Well...its been debated big time on this forum and basically its like looking up a dead horses butt.  I own a lot of Alden boots, non JCrew and JCrew.  Many will say they fit differently and many say they fit the same.  I don't want to fuel the debate.  I will say I take the same size on all barrie lasts from whomever I get my boots from.  However I also do think there is some variance and that for some a 1/2 size up from their normal barrie size might be necessary, and it's also possible there is variance among any run of boots/shoes even for non JCrew make ups.  There's no fixing this, but I think everyone can agree regardless of size buy what fits your foot and is comfortable!

I know that a few people have alluded to this new, special makeup, but I thought it would be nice to share some additional pictures and information on it...

 

Without further ado, it is the Alden x Tassels 8th Anniversary Edition Unlined Leisure Handsewn Loafer made of Unlined Color #2 Shell Cordovan.

Yes, I realized that the shade of Color #2 is not for everyone, but still a pretty cool and unique makeup.

Awesome make-up Mike.  I agree with others that (for me) the #2 totally works with the LHS and darker edge

I bought the same boots there and I found them to fit a little narrower than a usual D width Barrie boot which worked well for me....I'm in between C and D barrie.... I also tried on 2 pairs of 10.5 C PTB and one pair was definitely wider than the other. They are are hand made shoes, and some variance is to be expected in my experience.
