arch support on the Barrie is decent but nothing like the modified, which by any standards is very high. If you need modified type arch support nothing else will do.
whiskey varies from quite light (see this thread) to approaching revello mid-tan. In Alden there is no lighter color though Ron Rider I believe was making some in a color called "natural" that some likened to scrotum. Too pink for most people's taste. getting to a color that transparent requires perfection that is hard to find in natural hides.

2. Is there a lighter color than "medium tan?". I specifically ordered a whiskey medallion from Moulded Shoe and was surprised at how dark it was.
Those are great pictures, did you pick up the NST at the Shoe Mart? I have been dreaming of them and their $675 pricetag for a while.
Yes, I did pick up the NST at the ShoeMart. However, I waited for months on backorder before they canceled my order saying that they didn't know if it would ever come in. Then, they suddenly contacted me and said that an order was coming, but it would be around 6 months. I think I waited a total of about a year to get them.
