Also if a 6D Barrie fits you well then a 6D Trubalance should work well for you. I personally wear a 6.5D Barrie and 6D Trubalance although my feet could work with a 6E Barrie/Trubalance.

403. Happy to talk more if you still want them.

Yeah prices went up right at start of 2012 I believe. I got both my 403s and 404s for under retail but had to pounce on them the moment I saw them. Given lwbs are up to $715+ it's expected given the demand

Some data points
405s were $315 in early 2008
LS #8 cordos were $600 in late 2007
Whiskey for $625 in mid 2009.

You guys know more than me on this subject, but with this reasoning, wouldn't medium brown, as opposed to light brown, be the correct choice for dark brown shoes? I guess I don't understand why you would go all the way down to light brown for dark brown shoes.

@ sevenfoldtieguy - are your Marlows darker than mine?

Yes - mine are indeed darker.

OK - than i understand why you plan to use the Saphir dark brown shell cordovan cream on your Marlows if you want to add a bit of colour.
For my shade of brown no way - i do like it so much - that's why i use the light brown Burgol to keep it.

I'm considering the Ravello cordovan NST boot from ShoeMart, but I'm concerned that the Aberdeen last might be too narrow in the forefoot.  It would be my first Alden, so I have no other lasts to compare it with.  I do own AEs on the 1 and 7 lasts, both of which pinch my toes but fit well otherwise.  Does anyone have any experience with either of these two lasts vis-a-vis the Aberdeen?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The fit will be quite different compared to AE's 1 and 7. The Aberdeen is TTS - I wear 9.5D. The Aberdeen will not have the toe pinching that is common to the 7. I wear AE's 1 and 7 in 10C/10D.

PSA: J. Crew's sending out emails to cardholders for 25% off plus free shipping. Just purchased the Natty CXL "longwing" boots for $404 + tax.  

 

Question: Anyone know what last these are on?  Assumed barrie, as my other wtb's are, but it doesn't say.

Yeah, I was surprised it worked. Typically, I wouldn't even had bothered trying. I also tried it on Barbour which WAS exempt … interesting.

@ sevenfoldtieguy - are your Marlows darker than mine?

It's interesting how much lighter yours are than the ones on the website:



and for example, here:

How old are yours? Maybe they get lighter over time? If so, perhaps the darker polish is desirable if you wish to keep the dark brown color?

Yes - the pics the gent attached showed a Marlow much lighter than mine. FWIW, mine are consistent with the coloring on the website.
