I am pretty sure those will be too big for him.

Indeed - I go 9.5 D in Trubalance, up to 10 E in Aberdeen.  Thanks for thinking of me, though.

Who did these? Looks Barrie. Practically my grail shoe. Might resort to a Carmina MTO in this style.

Of course, if this is thread-clogging, I would welcome PMs.  Thanks in advance!

Citi Shoes has an incoming order on Barrie and commando.

yup. would have kept my pair had they not had the tiger striping.

 

 

 

had they looked like the pair posted above I would not thought twice about keeping them. I want more shoes in that shade, any thoughts on who might be offering it (in shell)?

post #86753 of 87740
I got a pair too, but didn't keep them as they were going to be too big for me and I knew someone dying for them.

There was also a 6-eyelet cigar chukka and I posted pics of these also a few years back. Both shoes I deeply regret selling.

Sorry Arrow! Sometimes we have to make some tough decisions to keep our collections under control.

The angle is deceiving. I swear it looks like Barrie. That would make it the ideal boot for me but love the makeup.

Not sure Aberdeen is good for my wide, high arched feet. But 8E might work if I'm sizing up from Barrie and these supposed to run long.

The front stitching is shorter on the Barrie.

Aberdeen is really tricky. If you're wide and high arched (like me), it's going to be difficult to fit. I'm a 9D Barrie,TruB and I've purchased Aberdeens in 9E and most recently 9.5D and they both feel tight around the in-step area.

I usually wear the aberdeen last when I don't need to walk a lot and that's a shame given that you've spent $680+ on them shoes.

mdubs... I share that sentiment about self control.

Although, the other day I was thinking... If I knew the craziness now about shell, it would be tempting to sign up for every ravello,whiskey pre-order that Leathersoul had back in those days. There was a time when you can go to TSM, look up your size and there'll be a ravello, cigar models waiting for you to pick.

^ This man speaks the truth.  When I got into the game, you could go to TSM and hit the drop-down menu and select Cigar, Ravello and Whiskey with ease.  I recall searching this thread to see which color I should buy first.  In hindsight, the answer was all of them and then some.

The only ravello NST boot I know of is from TSM on the Aberdeen, like mdubs said.
