Thoughts? 

Many people have experienced the same thing.

It's my personal opinion that the flat welt (vs the reverse welt) does something to make it a bit tighter. I also had to get the JCrew version TTS vs all my other barrie shell boots which are a half size down.

I heard that the Leffot flat welt tanker on Barrie has the same affliction. I'll know more when I get it.

Speaking of the PCT - I am returning my 8D pair today to J.Crew. It's flawless, but I've never worn them and have too many Color 8 boots.

Not sure how long it takes for them to appear online in inventory again, but keep an eye out if you're interested.

For reference, I sized mine the same as all Barrie boots and shoes and didn't have any issue when I tried them on for size. Never walked in them or creased them, obviously.

Side note - J.Crew has excellent customer service.

Do the latest batch of color #8s have a darker (almost cigar when out of direct sunlight) hue compared to the traditional color #8 eggplant tone? Asking because my Leffot Naval boot has three times as much wear vs the JCrew PCT. However, the PCTs are more patina'd and are a shade lighter. The new AOM tankers look to be this darker shade of color #8 too. Hopefully, the Leffot tankers are lighter.

They're all coming out pretty dark these days. They do lighten up reasonably fast, however.

Yes the new 8 is damn near Cigar. I love it!

Congrats on your #2 LHS Brother.

 

I know you truly enjoy your Alden's and especially rarities such as those beauties.

 

Also, the pics and description of those shoes is a very good thing for the furtherance of Aldenology.

 

Of which you have a PHD.

Mike - absolutely delightful makeup from a fantastic store! Given that color 2 is more "out there", I much prefer these to the Longwing makeup.

I agree with @Akeem, go with what fits you best. honestly, some of my most comfortable boots are 1/2 size "too big".
