It was one of the first Alden models J Crew sold IIRC, so for at least a couple of years

I just mean that I wear them frequently without much regard to weather and other impactful elements. I don't baby them like I do my Ravello LWB. I don't actually play basketball, golf, or hike in them.
I figured that. I would still have a hard time not babying them anyway.
The Barrie last has similar sizing to the Trubalance last generally used for Indy boots. I think you'd want 6D in Barrie LWB.
Lakota House nailed this one.
Very tempting. And the price isn't outrageous (still a bit high). I don't think I got a chance to try the military last. But I see Lakota House has ordered up to size 11. That could be a good sign.
J Crew put up several models for preorder (mostly suede on crepe)
I did say there was something about suede . . . and LWBs
Uncle, Thank you.
Does anyone have experience buying multiple sizes for the same model shoe tree? (Woodlore, Jos. A, Allen Edmonds, Alden). I take a medium, but am wondering how much bigger a large is?
Is it a big difference? or a small difference?
The Mediums seem like they could stand to be bigger, but not drastically.
The Larges ended up being great in terms of width and volume, but they were just a hair too long. If they were a half cm shorter they would have been perfect. Ultimately, they don't fit in my 9D Hampton/Aberdeens.
Just thought I would mention in case anyone wants to use my experience as a proxy for determining their own size.
