    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    For what it is worth I wear a 11E on the 325 last and it is slightly roomy (works best with thick socks) while I am 10E on the Barrie last (and it is slightly tight (works only with thin socks)

    So I reckon my perfect fit would be 10,5 E on both. And sounds like you would be good on 11D.

    This is what happened to me, but on the Lindrick, Barrie sizing is 7.5D and AE sizing ranges from 8E-8.5D. I ended up going for an 8D in the Lindrick and I have to tie them tight so the sides are touching even though the width in the toes is ok. I have tried a thin insole and then it gets tight on the top of my feet. It seems to just have way too much room in the ankles on me, not sure the last is a good fit for my foot. The cork bed has not even settled yet (only worn lightly around 10 times, indoors only) so I fear the fit is only going to get worse.

    Might need to make a decision on if I should figure out a fit solution or sell them off. It's a tough call because I really do love them.

    It seems like the Lindricks are available in 8D on the RL website. I measure an 8.5 on the brannock and wear:

    8.5 D Flex Welt Chukka (Leydon)
    8 C LWB (Barrie)
    8 Mora 2.0 (108)
    8 Patriot (606)

    Would the Lindrick boot in an 8D be a good fit? Also, are there any sales coming up aside from the spring Private Sale? I'd appreciate any feedback, thank you!

    I think the best is to get both pair and return one that don't fit you as good.

    I would say half size down from Brannock is pretty accurate for sizing.

    I measure roughly about an 8.25 and I think a 7.75D (if they made that) would be the perfect size on me. I went with an 8D and it works for now with a tongue pad, might need a very thin insole.

    I'm a little disappointed to read this as I am also AE 8E-8.5D. Was planning to order the lindrick in 8D, but sounds like it might not work. Don't see a 7.5D on their website. I guess I will have to make a trip to the Mansion to try them on in person.

    To think I came into this thread to see if the Lindrick is still shell cordovan because the Web page doesn't mention it...

    Just to throw out another data point, I'm a 9 3E on the AE 5 last (Park Ave et al.) and I have the Lindrick in 10D. The Lindrick in 9.5D could possibly be better for me, but the 10 already required stretching the vamp due to my high instep. My feet are probably shaped differently from yours, but I can't imagine sizing down from my AE size for the Lindrick.

    Thanks for sharing. I think I also have high instep as that's usually the part that determines if the shoes will fit me. Either way, looks like off to the Mansion I will go (not looking forward to it with more snow on the way).

    If it helps I have a low instep and the main issue I have with the 8D Lindrick is that I have to tie them very tight. A higher instep would help this a lot. Now that you mention that I think the 8D might be ok on you. For me, sizing down to a 7.5D would likely be too tight in the toes. For now tongue pads have helped. Of course if you have the opportunity to try them on that is always best, I could not so had to use my best judgement on the fit.

    When you're at the mansion, please see if you can get some intel on the future cordovan releases for this year!

    Possibly, even likely, but no way to tell for certain from the pictures - they could be made in Italy, England, China, Brazil, US....

    Pictures of the writing inside the shoe would be the best way to tell for certain.
