I am TTS 9.5D.

My contact at the Alden factory tells me the M-58 and the Barrie should be sized the same. In my experience the M-58 is slightly shorter (I went to a 9.5C in M-58 from my usual Barrie size of 9D). However, I also have Barrie in 9.5C. Generally speaking, a 9.5D in Barrie and a 9.5D in M-58 are slightly too large for me. In my experience, a 9.5D in either the Barrie or M-58 (both of which I have tried on, or owned) is noticeably larger than other Alden 9.5D's.

Conclusion: try on a few sizes if you are able, IMO. biggrin.gif

+1 since BB has excellent customer service.

Anyone know if something in this shell is in stock at a specific retailer?

I have those and I don't think I have ever received as many compliments from strangers about a pair of shoes that I own as I have received when I am wearing these.

As for the red brick sole... it may be a bit silly, but it is definitely comfortable. However, when it is time to re-sole, I doubt I will be going with that again.

Yeah, that's true but so far, it's the best last for me so I buy what I like on it otherwise it's the Barrie. And that's not a very svelte last either. I want to try the grant and plaza soon.

For anyone waiting for the captoe boot in #4 from Shoemart, I just gave them a call and those boots are now expected in May 2013. Joe was wildly optimistic when he told me mid-summer (which I knew was never happening), but thought I would provide an update.
post #34079 of 79291

^ Can you do a pre-order for the #4 boot on TSM?  Or do you just need to wait and purchase quickly upon arrival?

 

Thanks!

I am on the preorder list, but they may all already be spoken for.
