Congratulations counselor!  Which model are they?

I wear an 11D in Barrie and bought the same in Van after trying them on in store. Van seems to be a little lower volume overall compared to same size Barrie, and less length I think. Spacious toe box though.

Thanks! They are the black shell captoes BB still sells today. I believe they're on the snap last. I wear these guys to death, and the model number is worn away.

Congrats on the achievement.

 

Would you agree that the toe box is more narrow than the Hampton?  That is at least how it looks in the picture.

 

What would you say, SFTG?

Nice, just what I needed another pair of boots to lust after. Where did you get them?

Has Alden ever produced an unlined suede chukka with a crepe sole?

If you know your Barrie size and can be patient, I recommend looking up this ebay user (beutiful_loozer) every once and awhile. He's managed to source multiple BNIB #8 LWB on several occassions. He starts his auctions at around $450 and sold 3 pairs recently at that price. The pair that I won 18 months ago was absolutely factory-fresh. My feeling is that the user may be associated in some manner with Haberdash in Chicago.

Nice alternative to the PTB.
