    I would say yes. I'm a 11.5c on the Barrie and 11.5d van vamp around the strap kills my feet. Plenty of space near the toes however

    Uncle Mac told me when I asked about about van sizing that your barrie shoe size = your van shoe size. My barrie shoe size is 11D and my van LHS size is 11D. This worked for me, then again all feet are different.

    It's been a crazy busy summer. Don't have much time to post lately. The times I am able to post I just happen to be wearing the same shoes. :confused:

    Uncle Mac is doing well. Just busy with other things right now.
    I am helping Uncle sell a bunch of his 8.5C shell.

    Thanks Saz!


    Thank you BeSpiff'. I think it's part patina and part 'smoke and mirrors' from the indoor lighting. :slayer::slayer:

    They do look a little C&J Marlow/Darlton in those shots.

    These are fantastic and on my list for sure. They would be great with the tweeds of the upcoming season (for us Northerners).

    Those are some of the best ravello shortwings I've seen. Not sure why a ravello, cigar or even color 8 shortwing blucher on double leather soles hasn't been part of Alden's stock lineup for years. I guess they have their trademark in the longwing.

    Don L, your #8 medallion cap toes with the antique edge make a good combo with your blue slacks and argyles sir.

    I'm normally not a big fan of monk-straps, but your plaza lasted beauties are very classy. Wear them in the best of health.
