I know that very well - I am a 9.5E in Barrie. I still push up a bit against the sides in that size... In cordovan, my feet conform more to the shoe. With CXL, it is a bit of the opposite. I've tried EE in some sizes, but the difference hasn't been enough for me to require it. I can wear Barrie Longwings in 10D but not other models (like captoe boots, which I've sold)

Edit - Trubalance in 10D also works very well for me

So I gave Hunt Club Clothiers in Cincinnati a call after hearing that their clearance sale extended to Aldens (in this thread).  They confirmed this and confirmed that they can ship orders, but sadly my size was out of stock and it would be a 14 week wait.  

 

Just figured I'd let everyone know.  Sale extends through the end of the month.

Not sure on the exact suede as they are second hand and were not in the original box. They are supposedly a make up from Alden of Carmel.

So far I have my eye on some commando sole offerings from AoC.  I am looking at the commando sole versions because I live in the Sierra mountains and deal with 5+ months of snow per year.
 
So…. if you were to pick just one, LWB version

"regular" wing tip?


I had my eye on the AF80 (shortwing) a while back but wasn't sure about going with the commando sole.  By the time I made up my mind, my size was gone. I regret not pulling the trigger for a wet weather shoe.  I'd go with the short wingtip. (but that's partly bc I already have the LWB in color 8)

Yeah... I was told the same thing by another store as well.  I needed 975s (Color 8 LWB) in size 7.5D, and there were none on hand in the store, nor at Alden.  They are doing a run of them as we speak, I guess.

You don't even need digital cameras, man...though I carry one at all times. Iphone 4 and 5 take great pictures with natural lighting.

Go with AF80 if your primary use is with a suit.
