    looks like a new 2nds list from TSM just went out...I have the lists for sizes 12D-13D as well as some narrow widths in 12-13. Any big-footed dudes out there PM me and I can shoot them over to you.

    Revisiting a topic covered previously: Grant vs. Barrie.

    Some people have found that they can wear the same size in both. It seems like the primary difference is a narrower toe box on the Grant last, forcing people to size up or go wider in the same size. Is that about right?

    (There's a pair on the TSM seconds list on the Grant last that's my size in Barrie and I'm trying to decide whether to pull the trigger. With the risk being $18 the shipping and return fees, I should probably just do it ...)

    It really depends on your foot. Barrie is about the perfect last for me. I tried even sizing up on the grant and the toe-box was still too narrow. No size will fit me. I suppose I can go wider, but then what's the point, I might as well get that shoe in the barrie.

    Yep - I need an E width in grant (I wear 9.5E or 10D in Barrie)

    You should consider E widths in narrower lasts - most shoes in lasts like Grant and Aberdeen basically aren't available in barrie. Some captoe cordovan boots (Alden DC's cigar, Leffot's day trippers) are stocked in grant. Same issue with Aberdeen, basically tassels are on that last.

    Seconds list was weak from 10-11 D/E. If anybody wants them PM but I have no electricity or internet at my place so there might be a delay

    Agreed. The 10.5D list was a bit disappointing, save a pair of color 8 LWB.

    I can only imagine how many "buy it now" messages that guy is getting.

    On a side note, anyone get the 7.5E irregular list? If so, can you PM me? Thanks.

    I can't wear the same size.

    Barrie - 9D
    Grant - 9.5D

    When I first tried a Grant lasted shoe on in 9D, it was very tight. The 9.5D ended up working well. All in all the Grant is a nice last, IMO.
