FWIW, I've also felt it to be a "flatter" sole, as in not offering as much arch support as others. I have a Tremont Balmoral, so the lacing is different, but my foot is very snug inside. Not overly tight by any means, just well wrapped.

^^ I have never worn the Tremont. I am a solid 9 in the Aberdeen and the Barrie is too big. I just purchased a 9 in the Tremont - Argentino give me your thoughts, please.


If you are a solid 9 in Aberdeen, I would go with 8.5 in the Tremont.  However, it really is a tweener if you poll people that have them (half will swear by TTS and the other half will say size .5 down).  I think you just need to try two sizes and figure it out for yourself.  Good luck and let us know how it turned out for you!

Came back to town to find my pair of natural chromexcel longwing bluchers from Leffot on my desk. The shoes are nice, but they seem a bit long. Incidentally, these are my first pair of Aldens as well as my first longwings, so I have no brand reference. Is this the intended fit / look? Feeling clownish.

I did size down a .5 size for the barrie last (7D from 7.5D), as recommended. The heel fits fine and the toe box is comfortable. It's just the shoe is about a full inch longer than where my toe ends.

Finger indicating where big toe ends:

These are awesome! As someone who doesn't always think that the creases in shell are a positive (sometimes, just not always) I think this is the best way to do a saddle. The luster of shell on the non-creasing part, and suede or calf on the rest.

Very nice. Which ones are those?

Is it silly of me to order the Leffot Naval boot (black perf toe) when I have both the #8 and Cigar Grant Captoes from Alden of DC? Something about a simple dress boot does it for me and I can get away with them at work on the Friday.

No. None of the models you mentioned are black.

9015 post method and Leather Defender

How often should I reapply the Leather Defender?  Obviously it depends on frequency of wearing, but should I use it every time I implement the method?  Or is that excessive?

nephew,
good looking cap toe

I am assuming this can buff out but I would love some advice

brushing can solve this issue

Was hoping you had some insight on the differences between Aberdeen and Tremont.
