Talk about coming full circle.

The chart is right. Believe in the chart. ALL HAIL CHART! CHART 2012!

^ I went on personal experience and a few other reports on lasts I don't own. Obviously, it's just a basic guide in terms of sizing. I'm more than happy to make changes/additions and repost it if there are glaring errors.



I've also been trying to get rid of a NIB pair of dark brown longwings in 10.5D over on B&S for anyone who's interested.

JCrew #8 captoes for their first outing. (sorry about the crappy pics)
Those looks very burgundy for a first time wearing! Mines are probably at least 5 shades darker than that.

They are tan vegano calf with brown alpine grain calf. Leydon last. My first Leydons, so I wasn't sure how the fit would be, but I like the fit even better than the Barrie. Light and comfortable for the spring.

in regard to your barrie last did you increase your size in the leydon last

I did. I'm a 8.5D on the Barrie and a 9D on the Leydon. I think the Leydon is a better fit for me in the toe box, but each fits fairly well. I assume you have some of each, yes?

Hello guys, I am thinking of getting an Alden Suede Plain Toe Blucher on the Barrie last. However, I am not quite sure what size would be appropriate. FWIW, I am a UK8 on the C&J 337 and 348 last and the same on Carmina's Inca last. Any suggestions or recommendation?

I would say Abderdeen runs borderline large. It should be in the middle of the chart.

From my experience with it, the Aberdeen runs a little bit long but pretty narrow. I've had my best results going TTS on it.

For me, the tightest last that I've tried so far has been the Plaza.

I agree with this assessment - narrow but just a touch long. Not long enough that I would ever recommend a rule of thumb on sizing down a la Barrie/Trubalance/Modified.

Yeah, since it is narrow, I wouldn't recommend sizing down on it, unless you consider going up a width.

I wear either 10D or 9.5E in Barrie/Truebalance. I went to 10E on my ravello longwings on aberdeen. They fit fine.
