Based off the "AF1" tagline, I'd go ahead and guess Alden of Carmel.

Ordered these yesterday from TSM.  They're on the Barrie last.  It's my experiment to see if the Barrie last will work for me.  I've got a pair of natural CXL boots on the Modified last and they fit me really well.  Also have a pair of Indy 405's on the Trubalance which I bought impetuously and they don't fit me well so I'm going to have to unload them.  I'm hoping the Barrie will work for me as it seems there is a lot more variety out there to choose from in the Barrie, especially in shell.

 

I really like how the Modified last fits but am not too crazy about how some of the boots look on that last on the Moulded Shoe site.  The cap toes on the ML make the toe cap seem way too small and the boot looks kind of bulbous.  For some reason, the suede boots (wingtip and cap toe) on the ML look sleeker and not bulbous as the ones in calf or shell.  Go figure.

 

I'm interested if anyone has gone through a similar experience with these lasts.

I bought these back in April thinking they were on the Hampton. They are in fact on the Barrie after doing a comparison with a pair of LWB. The confusion abut them being on Hampton due to TSM's Obscura replica makes sense. BootSpell if you are reading this here's a fit pic I took a long time ago.

I plan to pick up the wingtip version now, since I have a hunch that getting a Ravello wingtip boot in my size would be near impossible with the Ravello shortage.

Those are brown CXL.

Having never personally tried the Modified, they continue to be awkward looking. But will defer to in-person reviews as well.
