@tifosi this is right in your wheelhouse! Better snag the 8 before I dopost #85084 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:27amSo I've been pondering a size relation between Aberdeen and Barrie. Reading about the Aberdeen being a bit longer and narrower I tried a 11.5D and it fit perfect (tassel loafer) I measure a 12D on Brannock (on the narrow side of D) All my AE's have been 12D other than 65 Last. 11.5.
With Barrie sizing and the recommendation to go 1/2 size down, would the idea be from the Brannock, or a known good fitting size. Like the Aberdeen loafer.
Ideally I'd go try on a Barrie but just haven't been able to lately and its been eating away at me. Thanks gents!post #85085 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:30ampost #85086 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:45ampost #85087 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:46amNote - I thought the boot looked like Trubalance but was told it was definitely Barrie. Might want to triple check before pulling trigger -- I'm also 98% sure my other specs are correct but inspected quickly on little sleep and no coffee. Believe they were $590.post #85088 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:50amQuote:Do you recall how the apron sitiching looked? Was it squared off like the Indy or round like a Barrie Tanker?post #85089 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:50amQuote:Originally Posted by movoblast
For those who think that #8 is king, if you don't mind, can I ask how old you are?
I wonder if it's an age thing. Maybe it's also because I don't have to wear suits/ business casual? I agree with epc2 that cigar is much more versatile. I think cigar (dark edge) and #8 can be dressed up equally, but dressing down cigar is much easier.
I'll answer that if you post your net worth statement What does FTW mean?post #85090 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:53ampost #85091 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:54ampost #85092 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:56ampost #85093 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:56amQuote:
Id so be in on these if I didnt have Grain Indy's already. I just cant see owning both.
Although I am very tempted to grab the NST's and sell the Indy's on eBay. hrrmm.post #85094 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:57ampost #85095 of 1224166/20/14 at 10:59amYea, learned my first lesson in this game. The hard way. I've put in a request online and will call later. I know they had them earlier this week. Unless someone is playing the rare shell retirement plan game and stock piling.
In the meantime, can someone remind me the current Ravello builds going on. Might see if they ordered and big guy sizes.
Might just shut down the computer and head to the bar.
