Happy I bought them in black. Can't wait to get my pair. Thanks for the pics!
Great Odin's raven! Fantastic shade of cigar. Outstanding!
I could not resist the 3/4 Brogue #8 Plaza boot, when Uncle Ed called me on the tele I caved. They will be here in about 5 months...
I guess the first time around they did not do E widths but are getting a special shipment in...
Thanks - I did not convert the edges, but have noticed a few other pairs floating around with a dark welt and an antique edge. I'm not totally sure, but I know this pair of Ravello Chukkas had a dark welt and antique edges back when @rydenfan was selling them a while ago - perhaps he could shed some light on whether this was originally dark welt + antique edge or whether he converted them at some point.
Congrats. Can we start calling this the "mdubs" boot in honor of @mdubs contribution in getting it made?
I'm thinking I might get one in black.
Cigar Captoe x Madison. First photo is a crappy camera phone pic. The second is with the DSLR.
The black really is incredible! Congrats Mike. Btw, your chukkas are gorgeous. The Barrie last always looks so svelte in your size
Interest check for Leffot's Brown Alpine Grain Wingtip Boot, 8D Barrie Last. I waited 6 months for this pre-order and since then I've acquired some similar boots. Offering them here for $525. PM if interested.
Edit: To clarify, these boots just shipped.
They look great - I love my pair of these - wore them yesterday.
So good!! Kicking myself that I didn't jump on these when Ed called a few years back in regards to the Shoe Mart run.... Especially in light of how dark Cigar has gotten.
Mike, both pairs are super. Great make up
For Barrie last sizing, I've heard go down a half size. Others have said go true to size, but go down a width. I wear 11.5D in the Leydon last. Would 11D be a good start for the Barrie last. Or is it better to try the 11.5C?
does anyone own both the alden 4060 and c&j harlech? if so, could you compare them in terms of fit and formality?
I would start with down a half size and a D width, because if that works for you finding makeups down the road will be a lot easier.
For every last, I have found that everyone has a good fit and then a perfect fit. From my extensive trying on of sizes, I have found that sizing down I get a good fit, but by going down a width, I get my absolutely best fit.
The conventional wisdom is to size down on the Barrie Last one length, I personally go down a width. I determined this by doing the "blind taste test" in which I tried on a ton of shoes without knowing the size and having a purely unbiased assessment of my fit.
Based upon the purely conventional wisdom, 11D would be the best starting place, but Mike's advice is to go into a store that stocks a whole slew of sizes and just try on until you feel the one...
