• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

New acquisition today (last one for a couple of months, at least), Delmar boots from B+M. Yenni and I worked on the design of this boot together and I'm thrilled with how they turned out. We were going for a dressier u tip design and so these are on the Grant last with a 270 flat welt, double waterlock soles and all eyelets. With the Indy quarterstitch, I'm regretting not proposing that they be called Shortrounds but oh well.

These came out really well. I need 11.5E/12 or I'd have bought last week, but I'm looking forward to seeing that Barrie U-tip boot coming. I'm done with Indy boots, the Grant and Barrie U-tips are where it's at for me.

This. I'm down to one Indy. I find TB a bit snug in the instep and it tends to aggravate an old injury. My try going TTS instead of Barrie sizing at some point though. I really like Barrie NST's and U -Tips.

Agreed, I generally don't have a problem with CXL or suede makeups on TB but I have to wear my Color 8 Indys with dress socks to have a bit more room in the instep, and they're even TTS. I have wide feet but TB may be my worst Alden fit so far due to the toe height. I've had much more luck with Barrie all the way down through the narrower fitting lasts.
