Is there a code needed?

Smallest size is 9, but likely still too big for my 8d Barrie foot?

Yes. Although an 8.5 could very well work.

Excellent looking shoes today folks.
I'm having tech difficulty. I have an advertisement banner covering my reply to quote option on my iPhone. It's at the bottom.
This one has "adding a little dapper to any dull day"

Any ideas on how to get rid of it? Thanks.

Thanks. Looks like I waited too long, though. My size is sold out!

 

Edit: Well, my size ended up reappearing, so I went ahead and got them. Looking forward to these.

I wish, MrDV. I have the same problem.

Gents,

When guys size-up on their Barrie boots from their typical Barrie shoe size because of tightness, do you think most go up a width (i.e., 9D to 9E) or most go up a size (i.e., 9D to 9.5D)?

Is there a general rule here?

Thanks!

I have heard that Barrie boots sometimes fit tighter, but I didn't think enough to warrant a size change. Others will chime in, but I hope not as I have a pair of Barrie boots on pre-order in my normal Barrie size...

Just thought I would post a group shot of my #8 collection.  The loafers aren't technically #8 since they're AE, but it was pretty close to the others when they were new.  They've been worn HEAVILY to the point of abuse, so the wear has changed their look significantly.  Now that I have other shells, they've seen less wear (and I'm sure they're thankful...).  

 

Apologies for the washed out picture - my camera phone wouldn't cooperate.

Thank you, Sir. I'm debating whether to keep my Naval boots. I find the toe box to be lower and narrower than my Grant boots... not sure if I can expect it soften up. Having never learned from prior experience, I should just admidt that first impressions are the right ones.

My Naval boots started out a little tight, but as my foot sank into the cork bed they became more comfortable.  The toe box hasn't stretched for me at all for what it's worth.
