Not sure where I was on the list, but I think I was #1 or #2, for size 12D. I got the email yesterday. Very sadly, due to some recent purchases and events, I had to pass on them (already emailed them back). Hope whoever gets them enjoys them as much as I was planning on enjoying them haha.

I got the TSM version last year, but returned them. They're nice but decided to go with a dark brown suede captoe bal.

I get the same size as plaza. I think the heel on the Hampton is a bit wider and the toe box has a lot more volume, but sizing down width or length was bad all around for me.

I've got these Grant cigar CT boots in a 10.5E and they are probably the best-fitting Aldens I own.  I've tried Plaza in 10.5D (didn't work, too little volume across the top of the ball of my foot) and 11D (works much better than the smaller size, but possibly a tiny bit large), but am not sure whether or not 10.5E would be ideal on that last too.  So my answer to your question would be a qualified maybe.

As for Leffot, I have found various retailers better in the CS department.

Is this a model that can be found in #8 or cigar?

Never knew there was a color 4 of these. Gorgeous.
 

thank you for the kind words gentlemen.

burzan, alden dc makes a whiskey sw which is very similar. brooks brothers burgundy short wings also have a similar flavor.

So you guys feel the cigar CT boot is pretty versatile colorwise?

I don't have anything like that yet. Trying to wrap my head around what outfits I could rock with it. Probably as many as I could with color 8, is my guess.

I remember reading that the JCrew PCT fits tighter than other shoes on the Barrie last. Is that the general consensus?

Yes that is the consensus. Depending on how Barrie shoes fit, I don't believe they fit tight enough to warrant a size change. At least not in my experience.

these are my first boots on Barrie last but comparing to my Barrie lasted shoes, yes they fit a bit tighter. But the fit is perfect. Also 270 welt looks and feels much sleeker.
