My standard lined shell LHS are EE width since my instep can't handle the strap in my normal E width.

When I was at Alden DC buying the snuff LHS, I took along my BB unlined for size and comparison and, they were identical. Joe said that the BB unlined are on the Copely last but used to be on the Van last (I realize there is a lot of disagreement on this point, though). But the unlined snuff LHS are supposedly on the Van last, so, whatever. One interesting observation I have had is that if you turn the shoes over and compare them visually, the lined LHS of the same size as the unlined, whether BB shell or snuff suede, the waist of the shoe under the arch and the heel as well are both noticeably narrower in the unlined shoes. I don't know if this is because the lasts are different or because the unlined shoes are just lighter overall and don't require as full a base.

Thanks for the reply. It sure is confusing. I will order both sizes from BB for making sure. Brooksbrothers should list Alden lasts on their website, it will make things way easier!

you don't wear a 12 in barrie, right? so we wouldn't both be calling when they open looking for the same size?

i mean, it's in my signature and everything!

Barrie Tanker gets the love, but a black shell Trubalance one with Commando and hooks means business in a different way.

Alden SF received a restock... I'm sure if they did some advertising they'd be gone already.

Those look pretty sleek for Trubalance.  Here's my pair on the Barrie:

 

 

One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.

post #85406 of 122416

Well, I just opened these up and could not be happier.....the fit is great and I love the color.....pleasantly surprised with the light edge trim.

 

They apparently have been tried on before as there is some slight creasing, but not going complain as they appear to be flawless otherwise after a quick inspection.

If anyone is interested in an 11d cigar tassel, please send a PM as I will likely be sending the pair I recently got from Harrison, Ltd back......the 11.5 ravellos are a much better fit.

post #85408 of 122416
Dang!!! I would be happy with those too!!! I am not surprised that they are creased just based upon how long they were at Pelle Line. They will be creased much more within 15 seconds of being outside.

I was sad that the pair I picked up were too big for me!!! Darn the person who labeled a 10.5E as a 10.5 Medium. Got my hopes up soo high.
post #85409 of 122416

Thanks!

 

It is frustrating how inconsistent sizing can be, particularly on the special make ups.

 

I tried on an 11 and 11.5 in #8 shell at a local retailer and the 11 was definitely the better fit..

 

Yet, I can hardly get 11 cigars on and the 11.5 ravellos fit perfectly.

 

The cigars look great, with a rich dark color and light edge, if anyone is looking for some.

 

Despite my hesitation, I think I might become a tassel guy after these!

post #85410 of 122416

Does anyone know of any boot makeups that are the following:

 

non-black

calfskin or cordovan or chromexcel

plain toe or captoe

brass hooks and/or eyelets

commando sole

 

I really like the chromexcel Viberg service boots, but can't see spending $700+ on non-cordovan boots.
