    Larchmont is definitely the most intriguing of the 333 shoes, IMHO. Gorgeous, especially in the dark brown.

    Even more intriguing than the return of the mora in 333 last?

    Thank you for posting the photos. Can you imagine the Larchmont in scotchgrain with a double sole?

    No, you're not nuts. I had to size up 1/2 in the MacNeil, and someone else here (maybe patrickb) also had to. I found it too short in my true size. I thought I was the only one; good to know it's not just me.

    You're not nuts at all. I wear a 9.5E in the #5, and wear a 10D in Malvern (#1). The MacNeils have an even more narrow toe box than the Malvern.

    Am I the only one that wishes the Larchmont had closed lacing?

    If only. I know nothing about photoshop. I just think think the lines of the shoe don't lend itself well to the open lacing it has.

    Hm.. That might be why I can't quite warm up to it, either.

    Also, can anyone speak to the sizing of the Larchmont? It looks pretty narrow and long, and based on that I think it would be comparable to the fit of the 5 last.

    I'm a total newb (see my handle) but I don't know if I've seen a long wing bal. Is there a good example?

    Yeah, I don't know of any off hand. I just want the shoe to be their Jefferson model in that last (333), color (chocolate) and price point. The Jefferson is overpriced IMO.
