The 1 last feels a bit snugger than the Barrie, but it still works for me in the same size. I assumed I'd be an 8.5 (my TTS) in the 1 last, but when I went and tried it on the 8 was perfect. Glad I tried it on before I placed a couple orders. Could have been an expensive, non-returnable mistake!

snug on the width, or the length?

Well the ball of my foot ends up at the widest part of the shoe on both lasts. So I would say a bit snugger on the width on the 1 last. My foot felt a bit more cozy in the 1 than the barrie. Still comfortable and not tight at all.

In many ways I wish these were my first Alden shoes. I like how you show how they can be worn casually

The Regina grain dark is a very dark slightly textured leather. Union made has used it on previous models. Very nice

Same here. Chinos and khakis at work and jeans at play. I have to be able to wear them casually or I'd never wear them, really.

Yes, Mr DV ! That, and more so the fact that anytime I have a $50 bill, no one seems to want to take it! They just give me that loooooook....You know that looooook.

Do I look like I just printed this in my basement??? ( Of course not, a friend did it for me )

That was really funny DV, got a big laugh out of that.

Grant last fits me oddly...not enough wiggle room in the toe box.

That J Gilbert list looks tasty. 2014 looks to be a more scarce year for shell than 2013. Good for my wallet. More Grants.
