    These shoes in near perfect condition have been worn only a handful of times. They were made by Nettleton for Westerfield. Although I was hoping to add them to my waredrobe, they are fitting to loose for me to wear. My loss is your gain.

    Price includes shipping ConUS. Other buyers please contact me.

    Shoes ship within 5 business days of payment being received.

    Noting uncertainty about sizing, I am accepting returns for refund of price minus shipping cost if shoes are shipped to me within seven days of original delivery.

    Can you comment on the sizing? TTS?

    I normally do fine with 8-1/2D, but these are too large to consider even with tongue pads. Perhaps then it is comparable to the Barrie. I don't have a pair of Barrie for comparison.

    Can you give us your usual size in a few other brands? Allen Edmonds? Alden? Ferragamo? etc?

    Not a huge number of data points. Alden 8-1/2C. A-E Park Avenue 8D. Paul Stuart (Stuart's Choice) 8-1/2D. Crockett & Jones are normally too wide for me whatever the size.

    hi,

    do you know when this pair was made? even if you do not know the exact year, do you have an estimate of the age of this pair of shoes?

    thanks.

    Based on other new old stock I have seen, these may be from the '70's, but this answer is as much a guess as an estimate.

    I would not advise making a purchasing decision, frankly, based on this information, but I have addressed your question as best I can.
