    "WestLinn" - now I get it!

    I've been wearing those color 8 Indys year round for two years (of course not every day) and they handle the rainy drizzly weather so well. I should have taken a better 'before' pic - fairly soaked, and the "8" was looking a bit gray across the vamp.

    Is WestLinn supposed to be referring to the neighborhood outside of portland?

    Can anyone comment on the fit of Barrie last, shoes vs boots? Are they pretty much even or does one tend to fit larger/smaller than the other? I realize such a question is highly subjective, just wondering what folks think. I only have boots and was wondering about the fit of a LWB. Thanks!

    I find Barrie boots to fit a bit tighter than shoes but not enough to impact sizing. That is, same size for me on Barrie shoes and boots. YMMV

    I'm the oddball on Barrie boot sizing; I need to go up 1/2 size from shoe to boot, however I hear that's atypical. You should size the same from boot to LWB though.

    Thanks for the explanation DV! I personally really like the grain leather as well, the casualness goes well with denim and chinos. Now just hoping for Leffot to make this in a daytripper boot!

    I'm guessing the 7.5D worked out. They look great!

    Yep, they worked out much better than I thought they would. It might actually be the perfect fit for me for loafers.

    Excellent look @rydenfan. I seriously contemplated the Kudu LWB on Leffot's most recent pre-order.


    Gorgeous. Great color combo @Michigan Planner. Deets on those trousers?

    The trousers are the Epaulet rust mid-weight flannel. I picked them up in the "Ends for Friends" thing they did before Christmas. They are definitely an interesting color.
