As i understand it, the Barrie last is slightly less wide than trubalance, and I am concerned that the reduced width will not accomodate my feet. Thanks for helping guys.

I consider them the same and wear the same in each because even though Trubalance is slightly wider than Barrie, Trubalance typically tends to be the Indy boot and with boots you tend not to wear dress socks, but rather a thicker sock. So, it works out well in practice.

As my handle might suggest , I work with my hands for a living but also have a love for classic men's style. Hence the love for Alden. I also like to work on projects outside of work. I'm currently rebuilding a 70s vintage Honda CB750 as a "Cafe Racer" or at least my vision of what one should be. Given my love for all things Horween, I wanted to use one of their products when upholstering the seat. However, items like Cordovan and CXL are pulling a premium as of late. So, i've decided to go with a natural Horween 'horse strip'. As most of you know this is what is left after the cordovan shells are cut away. It may be a little think and stiff for the application, but i'm up for the challenge!

Here is a shot of the strips. With an 18lb West Highland Terrier thrown in for scale confused.gif

I figured out of anyone, you guys can appreciate my insanity.

My girlfriend just shook her head when i told her the plan. shog[1].gif

I know it is not a pull-up, but i hope arse sweat and indigo will patina the hell out of the leather.

Hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction for the boot I'm looking for. I'd like to get a commando sole, shell cordovan boot that is any style, excluding NST, in a size 13D (barrie) or close to that. Any leads on websites/shops to try is greatly appreciated!

See Ya,

I would buy those if I found them in tsm's seconds list. I think they look very nice.

Thanks for the kind words gents. It's been a slow process. I'm curretly rebuilding the engine. Probably wont happen this summer. My own fault as I dont like to cut corners. I'd rather not work on it if i know i'll do it half ass.

I'll post some pics when there is something worth posting lol

I just got a save 30% off ANY purchase at Brooks Brothers on May 22, good at store or online. Seems you need to be a "corporate member" to use. If I remember correctly, I just got the corporate membership recently by just going on line and applying. Just a heads up.

 

I need to check the date, as I'd earlier told Uncle the 23rd.
