Agreed. When I wear whiskey (or tan) shoes, it is almost always with light or medium gray or navy. Indeed, just today I wore medium gray trousers with tan EG tassels (chestnut burnished calf).

Nice boots! I'm doing the same with my Naval boots right now. I now sort of understand the sizing up with Barrie Last boots. My one foot is slightly snug -- but I think it will loosen up.

it helps that the boots i posted are on a commando sole. i am under the assumption that they wouldn't put on a commando sole if you weren't supposed to wear them in inclement weather. this'll be my second fall/winter with them.

Thank you, Sir. I am so glad I moved up a half size - it's really true that Barrie last boots fit more snug than Barrie shoes. Now I just need to dig out my camera and take some real photos.

Todd, did you go up a half size for the Naval Boot? That's what I did (half size up from what I normally get for Barrie last shoes).
post #58890 of 86599
For anyone reading out there reading the advice above ('going a half size up for Barrie last boots' versus what one normally wears in Barrie last shoes) I just want to point out that I am an 11C on the Brannock, and D width Barries don't fit me particularly well to begin with. I usually buy Barrie last shoes in 10D - one full size down, instead of the recommended half size. It usually works. But not for boots - just too tight (length and width) - so I 'sized up' one half size to 10.5D, and that works great for me. I've got a 10.5C Barrie last boot on order, which I think will be my perfect Barrie size for boots and shoes going forward.
