Nice makeups there.  Sadly, I'm having problems navigating the site since I can't read or speak Korean. :(

Mac, as usual really nice looking pair.  I've seen you post pictures of NST in all different lasts - Barrie, Aberdeen, Plaza...  If I may ask, which style do you think is the most contemporary and would look the best with jeans.  I'm really wanting to get an NST but can't buy all the varieties.  I usually wear more casual, thus the question.  Thanks.

Google translate or I think there is an english button top right of page. Their stock is really nice but no larger sizes yet

There are a few things to take into consideration.  Shoe vs boot.  Closed vs Open lacing (Balmoral vs Blucher).  Shoe material (suede vs calf vs cordovan lined or unlined).  I've found all of these details to affect the fit to some degree.

 

Having said that, I have three pairs of Truebalance boots, one pair of Barrie boots and one pair of Barrie PTBs.  I can tell you that my Truebalance boots are significantly larger than either the Barrie boot or the Barrie PTB.  The Barrie boot and the Barrie PTB have a similar fit.

I'm in a bit of a pickle here. Firstly, I fit a trubalance boot in 10.5, so using the same logic that a Barrie last runs ~0.5 size larger like the trubalance, I bought a LWB in 10.5 and it fits a little big. Well I have a cap toe boot on the Barrie last preordered in a 10.5 and I worry it will fit me a tad larger like the LWB in the same size. Does the boot fit differently from a shoe much? Granted I do wear thinner dress socks with the shoe as opposed to thicker socks with the boot, but I still figured the difference wouldn't be that drastic.

Should I order a size 10 in the cap toe boot, too, and return the one that doesn't fit or forgo it and perhaps accept the fact that Barrie last simply doesn't fit my feet well. On a side note, I want a wing tip boot on the grant last from shoemart - should I go 10.5 here?

I suppose I could go to sherman brothers (closest alden supplier near me) but they really don't stock too many boots in store so I fear I won't be able to make an accurate size estimate by visiting one of their stores.

Thanks!

8.0 in Barrie.  All my barries fit identical.  (including boots).

 

After getting the 8 in the barrie, I sort of realized I could probably have been good with a 8.0 in Trubalance, but didn't really notice the extra room b/c it's a boot and you tie it around your ankle, so I'm not swimming in it.  It's super comfy too, so didn't really question it.  However, 8.5 in barrie was definitely too big.

(Many say that Barrie LWB are roomy compared to Barrie boots.  I can't speak from personal experience, but I've seen this discussed enough times in this thread to think that you should be fine)

Thank you!  We will add more English to the website in the future but until then I can answer any questions.  We will also be ordering larger sizes in the future. fing02[1].gif

Thanks! Mine are actually from Leffot; I prefer the Barrie on my LWBs. I think normal wear and tear will be the key. Enjoy yours!

thanks for the kind words, yea they are ptb in #8 990. i bought them used off another forum member. i think #8 looks good when it gets worn a bit then it starts changing different colors. i did the mac method on this pair after i got them over and over again for about 2hrs though except i added some of my own spit lol.

that would explain the shine also the sun was nice and bright smile.gif. the denim are a.p.c new standards.

Pffft. The Indy boot is oos in my size @ both Leffot & TSM. Seems odd that need supply is selling the Indy boot less than everyone else. You guys have good luck ordering from need supply?
post #49014 of 89430
i have never ordered aldens from needsupply but i've ordered other items they have always been excellent. i also think their 10% off code works on aldens.

Uncle, I think I like this NST whiskey even better than the ravello.  Outstanding!  Wear in great health my friend.

Hey everyone, newbie here with a quick question...

I searched the thread for this comparison, but I was unsuccessful in finding it, so excuse me if this has already been mentioned (don't worry, not asking about sizing!)

I have a pair of LS Ultimate Indys CXL and am looking to expand to a plain toe blucher as a nice summer shoe (idk why, I just can't get myself to go for the longwing instead). That being said, do you think Natural CXL or Snuff Suede would be better? This would be worn sock + sockless with basically everything. The natural CXL would be 'safer' in terms of in case it rained or something and more hardy, I assume, but that snuff suede is just too beautiful...

Thanks in advance

All: thanks for the warm welcome. Also, I did not make the short trip from Brugge to Sluis and Frans Boone so, unfortunately, I have nothing special to report for the thread (while I had lots of beer, did some cycling, and watched a race, I realize all that's off topic here).

What I do have, however, is another question. I have yet to find a satisfactory pair of travel shoes and am hoping for some Alden recommendations. One of my main concerns is comfort as we walk a lot when we travel. I also think I'm looking for a man-made sole as I don't want to have to worry about traction or longevity in inclement weather, and I really only want to travel with one pair of shoes (unless it's a special occasion). Finally, I want something that looks good with both jeans or mildly-dressy clothing. Any thoughts or, better yet, photos/links? Thanks.

The Alden Handsewn Oxford Luxury Comfort (815, 816, 817) are probably my most comfortable and durable shoes... And I think will meet the criteria you're looking for... I happen to be wearing them today:
