Jim at Eladwine told me that the factory is severely backed up on hand stitched models at the moment. Ealdwine has been trying to get a tanker going and have been pushed back to late 2020.
Time to bring back.... the shell machine-stitched Indy!

Which, ok, doesn't help with NSTs. But would be cool.

Looking for 11-11.5 Narrow (B or C width). And 11D if it’s Aberdeen last and not a loafer.

I haven’t had much luck finding B and C widths. So, I’m open to lots of different styles EXCEPT FOR Barrie LWB 975/ 979, Full Strap Loafer 681/6845, Tassel Loafer 660/661.

I really don’t know. The following fit me:

Aberdeen loafer 11C
Aberdeen 11D NST Oxford
Barrie 11C it’s still a little roomy, but not bad.
11.5B Barrie PTB

I THINK the trubalance last is on the opposite end of the spectrum from Aberdeen?

Never had a van last. I understand the Keydon is pretty narrow.

Leydon is great for those of us with low volume feet. It’s a bit tricky until you can try on several combinations at once. And that is a real luxury we don’t all have.

Yenni has color 8 on preorder, have you contacted her?
Just heard back from her; only D widths in the April drop. I can still get in on the run that's estimated for September 2020 delivery, though... :(

If you really didn't want to wait you could see if anyone has a 9.5E and try them with slightly thicker socks. At least for me, I find having a higher instep gives a little flexibility on length (primarily with boots). I normally wear a 9E on Barrie but my #8 tankers are actually 9.5E and they're very comfortable with medium weight boot socks.
