Im wondering what last this moc blucher is made on. The shop told me they only know its from 2019 and the code is M9605C, but i couldnt find any info about it. Maybe someone here can help me. Got my first alden a few weeks ago (plain toe boot on TB). Now im hooked and hoping this one is TB too, or atleast Barrie.
I have a similar pair 73035C on Van but these do look more like Barrie

Never seen them do a ranger moc on anything but Van but I’m far from the expert on this forum.

You and I both go 8.5D Barrie so this is interesting. I still don't feel as though I've nailed my Plaza fit. Started 9D and just didn't like it. Went to 8.5E and that seems to work best but my Cigar Wing Boots (shameless plug) are 8.5D and while snug, they work with dress socks. It the only last I haven't quite nailed.

Always appreciate the insight.
Plaza isn't one of Alden's best lasts for my feet, but it looks so elegant! Of all the lasts for my feet, it goes Grant, Barrie, TB, 379x, Plaza, Van. Grant being the best/most comfortable and Van being the most difficult with loafers.

Wore my modified last boots today. Still can't take proper photos, but this will have to do for now.

Order feels about right for me except, as a loafer guy, fortunately I have no issues with Van.
