Does anyone know of any stores that stock C widths? I am super curious to see how an 8C Barrie might fit me.

Looking great my friend; enjoy your shells often and in great health also!

After seeing some photos on this thread, I may add tan laces to my cigar LWB - I feel like that could work well with the antique sole

sacafotos,
carmina does many things well, some better than alden. I have tried but failed to scratch the alden itch with carmina, they are two different beasts.

2nd day of wear and feeling great, snuff commando cap toes on the modified.

@MrDV

Gorgeous pair! Do you feel the Aberdeen is too sleek/dressy to be worn with jeans?

I'm also concerned my wide ish feet aren't well suited for the last. I have read others complain about the same predicament.

I'd probably need an 8E, since I'm an 8D in Barrie and Aberdeen runs long. I'd rather go wider than longer.

Aberdeen fits "True to Size" for me, which is 10E. My 10E Aberdeens are just a tad long, but going something like 9.5EE would likely make the heels too wide.

TTS for me is technically 8E. The Barrie is just a wide and long last, so the 8D works. I could rock a 7.5E, I am sure, which would be the "half size down" standard Barrie rec.

I love those NSTs. Barrie last would be ideal, but those photos are tempting.

Thanks for the always superb photography.

It already is. I got a recent "cigar" LWB from TSM and indoors it's almost indistinguishable from the color 8 variety.

Your mom is a wise woman. If Ravello ages that beautifully as in your WT boot pic or @MrDV NST pic, I will be very, very happy. And happy to wear-and-wait for a few years ...

If I wouldn't get ridiculed at work (and probably at home, too) I'd use one of those pics as my PC wallpaper, LOL!
