@tifosi this is right in your wheelhouse! Better snag the 8 before I do :bounce2:

So I've been pondering a size relation between Aberdeen and Barrie. Reading about the Aberdeen being a bit longer and narrower I tried a 11.5D and it fit perfect (tassel loafer) I measure a 12D on Brannock (on the narrow side of D) All my AE's have been 12D other than 65 Last. 11.5.

With Barrie sizing and the recommendation to go 1/2 size down, would the idea be from the Brannock, or a known good fitting size. Like the Aberdeen loafer.

Ideally I'd go try on a Barrie but just haven't been able to lately and its been eating away at me. Thanks gents!

Nice sounding makeup.

Note - I thought the boot looked like Trubalance but was told it was definitely Barrie. Might want to triple check before pulling trigger -- I'm also 98% sure my other specs are correct but inspected quickly on little sleep and no coffee. Believe they were $590.

Do you recall how the apron sitiching looked? Was it squared off like the Indy or round like a Barrie Tanker?

I wonder if it's an age thing. Maybe it's also because I don't have to wear suits/ business casual? I agree with epc2 that cigar is much more versatile. I think cigar (dark edge) and #8 can be dressed up equally, but dressing down cigar is much easier.

I'll answer that if you post your net worth statement mwink[1].gif What does FTW mean?

Ugh, been eyeing a Ravello tassel online but couldn't pull the trigger till this week. Now appears to be gone. My stomach just dropped a mile.

When it comes to rare shell, always buy now and ask questions later

Id so be in on these if I didnt have Grain Indy's already. I just cant see owning both.

 

Although I am very tempted to grab the NST's and sell the Indy's on eBay. hrrmm.

"Alden. Buy now, think later".

Yea, learned my first lesson in this game. The hard way. I've put in a request online and will call later. I know they had them earlier this week. Unless someone is playing the rare shell retirement plan game and stock piling.

In the meantime, can someone remind me the current Ravello builds going on. Might see if they ordered and big guy sizes.

Might just shut down the computer and head to the bar.
