You mean "break in." My most comfortable out the box by far:cheers:
No, I actually meant breaking in. As in stretching. The strap on the L shoe is really tight--and my feet are flat as pancakes. (R shoe fits very nicely) After wearing today I will put a shoe tree in the left one turning it 90 degrees, to continue the stretching process on that one strap.

Man, those look nice! I haven't seen that makeup before. Congrats!

Mmmmm those look good. Cigar shell?

Wearing #8 tassels w/suit sans tie:
Such a classic model... I really need to get a pair in color 8. Was hoping to get a BB model but they never had my size.

First wear Brogue Statesman loafer in black cordovan, very comfortable on the Copley last.

Those are amazing. Ever since you posted your shoe circle a couple weeks back I have been eyeing that shoe. Really like the formality of it, but with the half strap.... Interesting indeed.

You got the same size as your Barrie size, per their website??

If you wear thicker socks than dress socks, Barrie would work. Otherwise, I would go down 1/2 size from your Barrie size for dress socks or no socks.
