Would some Barrie size 12 guy purchase the last #8 LWB at jcrew.com?
I have this faint hope that when that last pair sells they'll restock a full complement of sizes.
Funny thing is that I've put that in my shopping cart a dozen times and haven't pulled the trigger yet (I should have a few months ago when they had a 20% coupon that applied to Aldens as well). The main thing holding me back (aside from the expense), is that it actually has a dark edge & welt, not the antique that's picture.
Same thing happened to me! I've come to realize that a color 8 LWB with commando sole could easily be my OneShoe, since it goes with just about everything in my closet.
