ebay.

I don't mean to say deals like that are particularly easy to find or very common. but they are out there if you are very patient and/or aren't in a big hurry. of course, you often need to be nearly as patient to be a cigar or ravello style in the style you want, which is why I would advice buying one of those if you can

Does anyone know how much more length and width (in inches) are added for every half size up in the Barrie last? Assuming a constant width of D.

Does anyone know how to size a Florsheim x Duckie Brown longwing in comparison to a Barrie lasted longwing?

Pretty similar sizing. The DB being slightly narrower than the same size Barrie.

i asked him some general questions about last variation and fit. he told me there is a 3/16" difference between between widths (i.e. a D is 3/16" wider than an C, and an E is 3/16" wider than a D). also, for the barrie last, as 8.5E is wider than a 9D. he also said told me that a 9D leydon would very fit similar to a 9C barrie. i've had a tough time with finding the right combo of proper heel fit and proper toe fit in barrie lasted shoes, and haven't tried on a C, so that was interesting to hear.

also, i think i'll be putting my AF32s in 9E that i got from Alden of Carmel (http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index...do_Sole_88.htm) up for sale soon. so nice and a perfect shoe for my style, they are just a bit too roomy and thus i don't wear as often as i should. thought i'd toss it out here first.

I know, but sometimes a deal is too good to pass up. With so many pairs of Alden's (and three more on the way), gotta mix it up once in a while.

I believe it's 3/16" but don't quote me on that.

Would you consider a 9C?

Although the width probably would be good, they might be a bit long. 8.5D fits perfect, so I would hate to deviate, but thanks for responding.

I couldn't disagree more. Have you ever seen some other burgundy shoe wear/patina as well as Alden Cordovan Color 8? Color 8 is clearly superior. Just see all the numerous blog posts about vintage Alden Color 8 shoes and how they patina so wonderfully. It's practically legendary.

yes

Color 8 is not some magical unicorn of a color that patina's while other colors won't

below is a picture of 4 shoes of varying ages that were originally burgundy. the PTB, longwing, and loafer are all vintage. look at the color on the loafer compared to the others.

another shot below
