The only stupid question is the one not asked...
I own the Epaulet version and they are great. They look even better in person. I don't believe there is any difference in the Epaulet version. If Epaulet has your size, I highly recommend them!

Here is my sizing for reference:

- I measure 11.5 C on a Brannock device.
- Most tennis shoes I get in a 10.5.
- I have the Indy Boot in Brown Chromexcel in a 9.5 C and this fits pretty well but I know the Indy Boot is a little different than most others.
- I also have some Wingtip Boots on the Barrie Last in a 10 D and they are actually slighty snug, I might be closer to a 10.5 on the Barrie.
 
Any experience or thoughts with sizing for the A43? I know that Cordovan won't stretch as much as chromexcel so I wasn't sure if I should get a 9.5 or a 10.

9.5 for sure. This will fit the same as your Indy. Some report that Barrie boots fit tighter than Barrie shoes. I personally get a better fit out of my 8D Barrie boots than my 8D LWB's.

 

I am surprised to see you drop 2 full sizes though from your Brannock measurement. I drop .5 for for Trublanace and Barrie

Awesome, really appreciate the response tifosi!

It looks like one of the laces on my Indies is going to tear any day now.. Where can I buy a pair of replacement laces for my brown chromexcel Indies?

If you'll excuse me, it's time to go brush all my shoes...

nephew,
use the mac method for shoe care

Thanks! Ya it's weird, I think have a long big toe or something that makes the Brannock measurement a bit off, so the width of the shoe matters more than the length for me sometimes.  That also explains why some Barrie shoes I tried on fit great in a 10 but the boots feel a bit tighter.

Leffot has told me in the past that some customers order the same length for both Barrie shoes and boots but go out one width in boots. This may work best for you as well?
