It depends.

Barrie is longer and narrower than trubalance.

I'm between 11.5 and 12 on brannock. 11.5D barrie fits me very well, but an 11.5 on trubalance is too sloppy.

I'm really not a fan of trubalance at all. I recently got a 12C and that is better than the 11.5D, but not where I'd like it to be.

Quote from Matthew at unionmade.
"The pair you ordered have a single oiled waterlock leather sole, but not the flex sole, the heavier sole."

I have an 11.5 headed my way, and he said they have the following sizes left:

8
8.5 x2
9 x2
11
12

Barrie last, speed hooks (obviously) and oiled leather sole (not sure if it's waterlock or flex welt).

Not quite a book but a nicely printed 30+ page brochure. Got a copy in the mail directly from the factory a few years ago.  

 

The catalog showcases only the regular production styles.  Not a single mention of rare shells models.

 

Call the factory, they may have an updated version available.

The new version would be filled with mdubs photos.

Based on what I know, that would well exceed 30 pages!

BTW, the description on our beloved Indy boots follows:

 

"Alden's authentic work boot.  Famous for its career in film, appreciated today for its timeless design...."

 

Marketing that is.

The tobacco chamois lwb looks great. Any reason I should consider a D width if I'm happy with the fit of E width Barrie wingtip boots in #8?

The only thing holding me back is that this would be the third pair of Alden's in a row with commando sole, and all of my Alden's would be either commando or full lug soles.

If you're not necessarily looking for as rugged a shoe, you should consider the brown chrmxl LWB.

Maiden voyage today.  1st day of Mac method break-in in the office.  Isn't it happy hour yet?

 

Apologize for the picture quality.  I was hoping to show the depth of the color so I stood near the window.  My phone camera wasn't up to the job.

Actually, the chamois LWB's on commando would be a good replacement for a pair of AE Rush Streets I wouldn't mind upgrading from; they're essentially Strands in golden brown CXL, contrast stitching, and black Danite soles.

Those look fantastic GG. I need to get mine out the box and start wearing them. And remember, it's always happy hour somethere.
