But just looking at two Color 8 (dark eggplanty) combos in a row makes me feel hot.  Let's see some Summer duds!

For me, my Grant size was same length as Barrie,  but up in width (from D to E).

Grant, for me, is 100% a TTS last. And Barrie is 1/2 size down. I have tried Grant in my Barrie size. Did not work - at all.

Me, too. I got some bad advice from Leffot that Grant sizes and Barrie sizes are the same. They aren't. That was an expensive lesson.

Other than some who wear the same size in both, what you guys are saying makes sense and could reinforce what Robert at Alden-SF told me (that Grant is basically a Barrie with a sleeker toe).  I.e., the sleeker toe of the Grant necessitates going up a half size from the Barrie.  My question to you guys is do you feel the lasts are the same from about the ball of your foot to the heel?

Sunlight photos with AE in the middle.  Don't have my Chukkas at the office today.  The coloring is slightly different, but so do batches of cordovan.  I say they are darn close to cigar.

 

See Ya,
