I'm a wide-ish 11 on the brannock and a perfect 10.5 on the barrie. The 10.5 marlow was too snug in the toe box and the 11D fit much better. Not sure if it's available in an E width but my RL store only had the D to try on. I'm now waiting for the next private sale in hopes of buying them. My local RL SA is great about emailing me to notify me about the sales.

I found the Marlow/Darlton to be an "in betweener" size as someone above mentioned. It was a perfect "no fit" solution. They were on a fantastic sale at the time, marked down 40% I believe, but the size problem was a non-starter for me. The sz 8 was too tight, and the 8.5 was too roomy.

#8 Plain toe boot is actually an irregular. From the handful of lasts that I have tried, the Modified definitely fits the best.

Is Ed one of the managers? Do you by chance have his e-mail? If so, would you mind PMing it? Thanks.

Still don't understand why sometimes I get TSM 2nds list and sometimes I don't...maybe they're sent out slowly and I'm at the end of the alphabet or something, hopefully I'll get the list sometime today!

Owners are good people to know smile.gif

I will call and see if I can get in touch with him.

Regarding the irregulars e-mail, I find them sporadic since it depends on how often they receive irregulars from Alden.

Can someone send me the seconds list as well - looking for 8 or 8.5 in size.

post #23127 of 90113

I hadn't seen a 2nds list since November 25th 2011, so last week on Monday I send a message asking if there was an updated list. They sent me three emails the following day (Feb 1st) with the sizes I was interested in. Now I'm wondering if I got the new list or the old list.
