    I wear a 11 in the Alden Barrie, but a 11 1/2 in the Islay. The last used on the Islay is a bit narrower and just a bit shorter than the Barrie. So it really just depends on your feet.

    It does help. Are the 335 and 365 lasts fairly comparable in both width and length then?

    My Barrie lasted shoes were just a tiny bit tight in the right foot's outer toe box area when I first started to wear them. but they stretched out after a couple wears and I haven't noticed any tightness since my first week of owning them. When you went a half US size up on the Islay was there a little bit more room in the boot than in your half size smaller Barrie?

    I just want to be fairly confident when I order, because if I have them resole with Dainite before shipping to the US I'm sure I will not be able to return them. Thanks again guys!

    I would say that the 11.5 Islays are just a bit longer by a smidge and about the same width as my alden barrie 11's.

    11.5 UK vs the Barrie's 11 US? Are you doing -1/2 from TTS for the Barrie and +1 from TTS for the Islays?

    Out of interest is the burgundy cordovan from Crockett and Jones a brownish burgundy or reddish burgundy?

    Thanks lads. Has anyone had any luck asking them to make a pair out of reddish burgundy or do you reckon they are pretty set on what they have? (provided I pay for the custom)

    I have a question about this pair of Lowndes on eBay:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251220034483

    Are these really a size 11? I imagine these would be labeled with an "E" if that was UK sizing, right? It makes me think these might be in American sizing since this was from Barneys? idk. I don't want to buy the wrong size. :)

    ...or maybe it's a narrow 11 US?
