    They are Grant so sounds like DC. I'll have to go back and look for pics for the Cigar captoe on Barrie...sounds good.

    Thanks for the info!

    I just stopped by Moulded Shoe for the first time to check out some tan calfskin models... I was sized 10EEE (!) on the modified last... Ended up picking up the tan medallion captoe. Probably the best fit out of the box I've had with a non suede model.

    I have this boot actually, but the stitching is definitely something different. Also the banana shoe shape as mdubs says! [​IMG]

    I started out wearing 10D years ago in Alden. Switched to 9.5E maybe about a year after my first purchase. I then sold all my D width shoes and bought all E. I have had a few EE shoes (notably a Cigar LHS in 9.5EE which fit great), but never a EEE. I've flirted with the idea before on some Indy boots. My 10E width does in regular lasts generally fit well, but my little toe does rub against the sides of the shoes a bit depending on the model.

    Amazing catch, I love how sleek that banana shape is. Definitely grail worthy. Do you size the same as Barrie in these? I see a color 8 shell boot in modified last sized half a size bigger than my Barrie, not sure if I wanna risk it (I know the general consensus is half down from TTS)

    Tell me about it.

    I started off wearing Barrie in a 9.5E and it was always a little snug. Then 10D and now finally 10E Barrie.

    I could easily wear a 10.5D Barrie. Aberdeen in a 10EE is almost too small...
