    I can see having both. They have totally different looks.

    What about the width? I am a 8.5D in the Trubalance. I've read that some people tend to find Barrie slightly more narrow in the front than the Trubalance and they go with an 8.5E.

    Does anyone know of any retailers besides Winn Perry or Context that carry a Reverse Chamois plain toe boot? Both retailers are sold out of the size I'm looking for.

    It is not a noticeable difference to me. I wear the same size in both.

    nephew,
    that accomplishment would deserve both the black wt and black tassel plus a green jacket

    Dude, stop whining and return the shoes. Now, a) you don't find them perfect, or b) want to pay full price for them, but c) still want to keep them. So Leffot should take a hit and go out of their way to indulge you?! Wah! Some vanity that.

    It is a known issue with lighter shades and frankly over time one doesn't even notice them. Leffot doesn't owe you a discount, especially not if they are willing to take it back and issue you a full refund. They probably have 10 other people in the wait list who will snag them wthout any questions.

    YMMV, I recieved my ravello captoes with a almost dime size black mark on them. The mark was high enough on the shaft of the boot that it will be barely noticeable with that said I have been buying Alden long enough to expect imperfections. I am totally satisfied with my purchase. As other posters have noted with 2 or 3 year waiting lists someone would gladly pay full retail for them. Enjoy your boots!

    Yes and no. You would ask for that anywhere else right? You have a dinged up car at the car dealership, would you pay full MSRP? Your chef messed up your order, wouldn't you ask for a replacement or possibly a free meal depending on how bad they messed up? Ok so those weren't perfect analogies, but you get the point. Why is this any different? So a high demand excuses your store from any form of good will? I hope you don't run a business.

    Yes I understand that the demand is high. That is why I asked for others' opinions about even asking in the first place. But I thought about the matter, and they are still a business right? If they are selling such a popular product, they should also be able to pay the small price to run an ethical/good business. And to be honest, asking a person to return a flawed product so they can sell it to the next person(dummy) in line 1.isn't good form to the first customer, and 2.unethical to the next customer.

    Well Leffot stated product is not flawed, and by Alden standards it isn't. Whether you want to support that stance is your choice.

    Guess it is also a customer by customer basis, if retailer knows customer they may be willing to go out of way to help.
