The perfect cigar indy makeup. I'm on the list for the next order with Yenni.

That's why I'm confused...

You guys should really try going up a width in Grant (and the other narrower lasts)... I wear 10D or 9.5E in Barrie, and 10E in Tremont, Aberdeen and Grant all fit me very well.

Meh. many barrie models (longwings, PTBS, captoe boots) go fine with finer wool suits. Trubalance may be a bit different.

It's looks great when you get your hands on it.  It exceeded my expectations.

From left to right (sorry for phone photo):

10E, Aberdeen
10E, Tremont
9.5E, Barrie
10E, Grant
10D, Barrie
9.5E, Trubalance



I am a "true to size" 10E. All of these shoes fit very well in my opinion. The "longest" is probably the 10D barrie, and the "shortest" is the 10E Aberdeen (though I think the aberdeen is the best fitting for me). The "widest" is the probably the 10E Tremont with the Trubalance right behind it (I tried a 10D Tremont before, which simply didn't work) with the Grant and Aberdeen being tied for the narrowest at various points of the shoe. In general, I strongly suggest adjusting widths, not just lengths, to get the best Alden fit in the various lasts...

Also, when it comes to Barrie/Trubalance at least, any size D is very close to being the same size as the next length size down in E.


Left: 10D in trubalance
Right: 9.5E in trubalance



The left is slightly longer/narrower and the right is slightly shorter/wider, but not really enough to make a difference in the fit of the boot.

Question:

Have any of you guys noticed appreciable fit difference in your shoes with weight loss and weight gain?
post #34225 of 122416

No, but I have an associate who lost a dramatic amount of weight (~100lbs) and he went down in shoe size.

thank you

i'd like to hear from more of you if you have insight into this
post #34227 of 122416
does anyone know why some boot models have this stitching running across the sides of the upper? e.g. jumper boots

curious as to why other boot models don't have it.. does this serve a particular function or is it purely aesthetics?

I'm down about 70 pounds, and my shoe size remained the same. YMMV, of course.

How big is the difference between a plaza last boots 8.5D and 9D?
