but that is not one of your three.
If I had to choose one of those three I'd probably go cigar myself.


Any idea on how each color ages? I've heard whiskey gets darker, while cigar becomes more olive. Not quite sure about ravello.

Difference is eyelets? zippy, I admired your collection. Maybe the best here

Zippy,
Thanks for the visual comparison. Have you had the opportunity to wear your pair? If so, what are your thoughts?

Is there anyone here who wears half a size larger than their trubalance size in barrie. I am a 8 in trubalance, tried on an 8.5 in barrie today and it feels so much better. I think I'm gonna have to sell my size 8D barrie shoes/boots angry.gif

I've never been to the unionmade shop in SF. Anyone been there recently? I'll probably check them out on my next visit to SF

I have 3 Barrie boots in size 8D and they fit similar to my barrie longwing blucher and PTB in size 7.5D. I think you can get away with more room for a boot since there's more ankle support. As for the NST boot in barrie, the particular pair I tried in 7.5D was a tad small, and in 8D was a tad large. Such a shame since I love the look of them.

I know Barries are supposed to be on the wider side, but are they also longer than a Leydon in the same size?

I wear 7.5E Barrie and Adam recommended 8E Leydon (AF79) for me. The fit is spot on.

I was there last summer. Nice wall of Aldens. And I met JasonFoote303. Nice guy.

And they have lots of nice stuff besides shoes. Definitely check it out!

nephew,
thank you for the clarification-

550 increases to 594
600 increases to 648
700 increases to 756

Yeah, I got them from Winn Perry back in February.

I like the crepe sole since it's a little out of the ordinary. Quite comfortable too.
I probably wouldn't have gone for the crepe if I didn't have a few other pairs of shoes (ahem).
I've also got a similar pair in brown cxl with commando sole. I find myself wearing the crepe soles more often.

I saw these in person at the new Allen Edmonds store in the Embarcadero center. They look pretty nice but feel much lighter than the Alden WT boot. It looked like part of the reason was that they are not lined with leather on the inside. The last also looked much narrower than the Barrie so perhaps that will appeal to some of the more feminine members of this forum nest.gif
