    I don't think so. I think a big part of the sizing depends on your specific foot shape, I wear the same size in 4, 5 and 8 lasts: 12E. They all fit me very well and they're almost all balmorals. A couple of pairs are a little looser than others, but the looser ones are the 5-lasted. I think this is just due to the slight variation from hand-crafting or different leathers, even on the same shoe and some of my 5-lasts are spot on. I would try TTS first.

    Slightly off shoe topic... There seems to be several on here who know a lot about the upcoming Nordstrom sale. I need to buy a few suits. What is the difference with the upcoming sale on the 19th versus what is on sale now? I'm wondering if I should try to get there before this sale ends or if these types of men's clothing items will also be on sale come the 19th.

    Thanks in advance.

    My chili Fairfaxes (ignore the baggy pants, was wearing an old suit that's too big on me now).

    Excellent comparison! Exactly what I was looking for, thank you! I *think*I like the new finish more as it removes the light cherry/pinkish tones of the old finish. since you own both, what are your thoughts? that said, The lighting in the picture makes the new one look a bit flat / lacking luster. Do you find that to be the case in real life?

    Part of that may be the "new" finish, but a large part is just the aging of the shell. It changes color a lot and it doesn't take very long to do it. I bet if you put one of those MacNeils in the direct sun for two full days you'd easily be able to tell which one it was because it would be noticeably lighter.

    I too plan on picking up two suits during the anniversary sale. Probably the Joseph Abboud Dignature or Hugo Boss Pasolini. The anniversary sale is the biggest of the year.

    Excellent!! I am assuming your Bayfields are cordovan? When did you order them? I am just trying to gauge when mine might be ready

    Where is David Copeland these days? He would certainly have some insight on this

    Looks like the Eagle Country but I am not 100% because it seems like fewer eyelets

    Come to think of it, it seems like the Rider Boot he did in walnut shell
