    Do members typically size up from the Barrie to the Plaza?

    As in, 8.5D Barrie = 9D Plaza?

    (Not sure this is allowed, but a gentleman on r/goodyearwelt has done an interesting job lightening up his #8 CTs. I think they look great!)

    TBH not a huge fan. Not bad, just not an effect I would particularly desire. They kind of look to be #2 or Ruby. But then again, they also look they might just be a slightly lighter shade of Color 8 that is sitting in a sunbeam at the time of the picture. Don't mean to offend -- the boots are great and look to be wearing in well, just too red for my tastes and I wouldn't go out of my way to try to get that look on purpose.

    They look really nice. Looks like Plaza to me also. If I was a plain toe guy I might pull the trigger.

    Sir, I agree. The Unlined LHS is essentially a fancy dress slipper. Super light and amazingly comfortable. I would say my tan and snuff suede are equally comfortable though. ;-)
