That cigar/aged whiskey color looks identical to my new Ravello LWBs.
Jokes on us, all the rare shells are actually one color! ;-)
Thanks for the responses. Do you consider the Leydon narrower through the vamp and toe box than the Aberdeen?
What would you like to know?
It all depends on the characteristics of your feet. I am a slim guy with boney feet, so true-to-size the heel had a bit too much volume. A chubbier fellow with fatty feet might not have that problem, but might find that it's tight across the vamp, as many complain about. Being a slip-on, it needs to be big enough for you to slip on, but fit well enough that your heel doesn't slip out when you walk. I found that sizing down a half size and down 1 width fits best for me. The lined Alden version took a long time to break in due to its stiffness/rigidity. I also have the unlined brooks brothers version, which runs more true-to-size (for me) and is more flexible/supple.
On a side note, Do many people find that they wear the same size in van and barrie? Obviously it varies person to person, but are they similar enough in shape and form that such a generalization can be made with a high degree of validity?
