    So was thinking about TSM . The have listed as we all know the Ravello WT, Cigar LWB, Cigar Indy which leaves the whisky LWB. They have all been made except that one. I would imagine they have already been submitted to the factory and will arrive fairly soon. Anyone else agree?

    Happy birthday and Merry Christmas to me. Joined a pre-order. The Alden game is a cruel, cruel, mistress when not a standard size!

    Which order? I’m looking at three different ones from Yenni right now.

    Yenni had a couple that looked good, but I ultimately went with the military boot at Brogueshop.

    Great choice, I was just looking at that last night (was still available 24 hours ago, I bet you got one of the last orders in!), but I’m not confident I’d get my 379x size right.

    From everything I read, it sounds like Barrie or Trubalance size should work beautifully.

    True, but my TB size/width is different than my Barrie. I go down a size and up a width for Barrie since it’s slightly longer and narrower than Trubalance.

    If you have a wide ball and low instep like me, up a width from Barrie would be nicer. Some Japanese dealer suggested to take half size up from Barrie for the instep and weird "leather sole models are tighter".

    See if this helps. Again, Mack's always helpful.

    For me, Barrie has too much volume when I size length and width apropriately. My Indy works though.
