I would suggest you size down .5 in the barrie, so 9.5D.

I wear the same in Park Ave and Barrie. AE-5 is a long last.

If I wear 8.5 Indy boots what size should I get for the LWB and LHS?

I also do tend to have a wider/flatter foot.

Ok thanks. The barrie is a tad narrow for me in an D to begin with so i'll size up on the width as well as the 1/2 size on length.

My color 8 PTBs look like a much brighter red.  I wish mine looked as dark as yours.  Mine are fairly new and have not been out very often. Are they likely to darken with more exposure to sun and other light?

For reference the AE 5-65 last fits perfectly at 10D in my Strands and shell Cambridge. My Oakstreet trail oxfords in 10D are a bit loose and my Eastland Made in Maine trail oxfords are a bit snug but good at 9.5D. 

Of course, before last year I always thought I was a 10.5 facepalm.gif

I wear the same size in the Barrie as I do in AE's 5 last - 9D.

I am TTS 9.5D.

Still looking for the cap toe cigar.  Looks like Shoe Mart is the only place to order them, they are out of my size and told me I can put in an order, but it will be next April before they are delivered. 

Try Citi Shoes, they have cigar captoe on the website.

I ordered 8.5D in Van Last and wear 9D in Grant Last, do they fit half a size smaller compare to TTS Grant?
cheers

TTS - 9.5D
Grant - 9.5D
Barrie - 9D
Van - 9C (too much heel slippage in the 9D for me; and I do wear them without socks all the time)

Well, I guess I'll find out. I ordered the wingtip boots from Alden of Carmel at 9.5D on the Barrie last:

Thanks, Shoe Mart told me they were a special make up just for them.

Another NRO code for 20% off this weekend, and another Alden exclusion. I think they've been excluded on at least the last 3 or 4 codes. Seems like the days of getting Alden at 20-25% off from them might be gone.
