Will a lined shoe in 6D in a plaza last offer the same comfortable width ? Trying them on is not an option as I have to purchase them online. Any advice from guys with experience in these lasts would be greatly appreciated.

I got em in Black and #8 too.  I like them just fine.  Bought them for wear with suits.  Aberdeen/Hampton 9D  Barrie/Van 9C  I consider my true size US9.5 (Tod's & Gucci Loafers)

I decided to pull the trigger on a pair of color 8 tassel mocs... $495 with NRO's sale.  I'm prepared to be disappointed.  If it goes through great; if not, oh well.  Thanks for the feedback and help!

I hope everyone's NRO purchases pan out...

But it seems like every 3-month cycle is the same. People get all googly-eyed over "ALDEN DIZCOUNTZ!!!1!" put in orders, and then we quickly get the same anti-NRO posts about poor service, orders falling through, etc. Here's hoping y'all get your pairs -

Haresh, I wear the plaza true to size, and 1/2 size down for the Barrie. I think the plaza 6d should work for you if you are comfortable with 5.5d Barrie. plaza last Aldens are great looking.

dealing with them by phone (or rather trying repeatedly to deal with them by phone and then dealing with them by phone) was enough for me.
