Not sure on that man, sorry.

I have only worn them once so far, It's still been snowing here for the past week. Delayed Spring is really killing my Whiskey LHS buzz.

 

 

 

 

Wore my 403's today with some cords, really liking the look.

I bought them at some point in 2013 off the 10.5D Seconds list. That was super luck.

You had me there for a sec Tif, didn't think you had a black shell LWB.

Also, for anyone interested, I just listed some brand new J. Gilbert snuff suede wing tip boots in a 7.5d for sale. I love the boots, but I've made way too many unexpected shell purchases recently...

Dang, those Whiskey are gorgeous. But I am biased, they might be my favorite Alden design. Those yellow and blue socks are a lot for me to take in. :-) Cool though, but don't think I can pull them off.

Separate note--What do #8 wearers recommend for edge dressing?  Brand?  Color?  Use, if at all?

If you are talking about #8 with the standard black edging, then I just use the Black Allen Edmonds edge dressing. For antique, I use AE Walnut and AE Brown Calf Shoe Polish and run the Walnut on and then top lightly with Brown. Someone here posted that with pictures here a year or so ago. I saved it as a PDF. :-)

Somebody is a 7.5D.  There are a lot of interesting shoes on that list:  the shoes you got, color 8 and black cordovan split toes, brown scotch grain moc stitch chukkas, black scotch grain medallion toe bluchers with commando soles (which I got to use in foul weather), kudu chukkas, well as the ravello chukkas.

Of course too long.

I don't usually enjoy cigars, but I've been smoking these all day.

 

And please, no comparisons to MrDV's lawn...

HaHa. I live in SD also, I should take more pics on my lawn for you all also. :-) I just like the lighting better in my office, and well my lawn isn't as well maintained. :-/

Mike, regardless of where you take your pictures, just keep taking them. You've contributed some great stuff to this forum. The first color 2 pic earlier this week was mind blowing.

I'm a 7.5D in Barrie. When I finally got through this morning the ravello chukkas were gone. I had my eye on those, so I didn't think to ask about any others. I think someone on here snagged the ravellos. Hopefully we'll get to see them.

I thought the list was pretty good for the 8.5,9,&9.5 d. I went for the #8 boot on 379x last and brown cxl boot on commando but both were gone. I couldn't call until after lunch. I did pick ip the navy Barrie on crepe Barrie last. Looks like it may be a good all season shoe for me. 3 rd blue shoe this year (blue suede j and m and navy buttero tennis shoe) so this navy alden should have a spot. Almost went for the sand suede on crepe on 379 x but wasn't sure how the 379 last is. I will send pics when they come in. Greats pictures this week. And I have some green grass now. I can start showing some east coast grass slash dirt off smile.gif

Mr. DV should change his name to Mr. NV, because that's what he is.

 

And his lawn is more carefully manicured than a Playmate's trim.

I have scoured the internet and I cannot find an answer remotely close to my predicament.  I'm finding the barrie last to be much more narrow than the trubalance.  I have purchased the 403 Indy boot and 1273S dark brown suede chukka in 10.5D as in most shoes I'm a standard 11D. The Indy boots fit wonderfully.  I've heard the trubalance and barrie lasts are analagous, but I find the barrie last is noticably tighter along the instep.  My first thought was a 10.5E, but I've never seen someone who is Trubalance 10.5D and Barrie 10.5 E. Any recommendations? The edge of the toebox makes me think at 11D would be way too much room in the toe.  Is a 10.5E going to be hugely wider than a 10.5D?  Would a 10E be too short?  Thanks!

I would delete the sentence related to your buying situation. Not really relevant to your fit question and likely not something that should be publicized on the internet
