Barrie, again. frown.gif

seems SFTG and myself are in the same camp re: being disappointed with every new makeup being barrie lasted. i guess on the bright side, it keeps me from buying shoes i don't need.

Fingers crossed.  Today marks my 3rd attempt at buying a Modified last shoe from the Shoe Mart seconds list.   Hope this one actually ships....

nephew,
of course, there are other members like myself who like the barrie last. the barrie last supports the alden models which are the big and heavy models

I'd love to see more grant lasts, but all things being equal, retailers always tell me that Barrie sells best

Don't worry about what other shoes are in rotation other than it will mostly be worn business casual or with jeans.

PTB

Does anyone have Alden 39701 boots (dark tan, Barrie)? I'd like to see some "real life" pictures of them.

I got my first pairs of Argyle OTCs (Marcoliani). Figured that I would share here regardless of the fact that I wore my AE Walnut Shell Strands today.

Nice looking boot. Public question: can anyone tell me the difference between suede and snuff suede? I know there is split hide suede and full grain suede, but am unsure if this is relevant. What exactly is the difference?

I thought that snuff referred to the color (as opposed to tan or dark brown). It's a medium brown color.
