FWIW - I wear 9D in Barrie and 9C in Van. This would be roughly the same conversion for you.

Yes, Barrie. Probably my most comfortable Alden to date.

Those CXL plain toes are superb looking. What a great make-up. They look super comfy right out of the box.

All: if anyone is interested in some 974s I just cancelled my irregular order from TSM.  Tremont last, color 8 SWB in a 10.5d.

post #53633 of 96741
Well I don't know who I spoke to at TSM yesterday who said I couldn't place an order for irregulars yet, and that I should call back late on Thursday?! I called just now and spoke with the amazing Linda. She was so nice to speak to and she placed my order without a problem. Damn Shoemart, I had nightmares last night about not getting these damn shoes!!!

Would a C be wider than a D? If so, that would make sense since the Van last I believe is slightly more narrow than the Barrie last. I would probably choose an 8.5E.  However, I am wondering if I bought a size more narrow, would be possible to have them stretched out.  I will probably take the plunge and hope for the best. Thanks!

C is narrower than D. And I wouldn't count of shell LHS stretching much any. I wear 10.5E/11D Barrie and I went with 11D LHS after getting the chance to try them on in person. I'd say the Van does fit slightly smaller than Barrie in the same size, and most people want a loafer to be snug since you can't resort to tying the laces tighter...

Good luck.

^^ would you say the heel of the van last fits a bit more snug than the barrie last?

Looking for the 9D list and 9E lists.

Maybe we should post the lists here in .pdf format (?). Seems like some get them and some don't. Looked in my spam and don't have anything.
