    I wear a 10D on the Barrie and a 10.5D on the 1-511. YMMV.

    I think you might be right about the sizing. When I bought them from LSBH i was sized at a 8D which seemed to fit fine. I wear a 9d in the hampton last and the leydon, but Brian (i think that's his name), felt that 8 rather than 81/2 was the right size because i have narrow feet and said there isn't much difference in length between an 8 and an 8 1/2-- I guess maybe he was wrong.

    Does the Indy boots sizing vary from pair to pair? I tried both 12D and 11.5D from a store last week and realized 11.5D fit me better that 12D, which was bit large. Then I got a pair of 11.5D online and they feel a bit tight in the front, especially on the lateral side of the feet. Should I wear them for a week or two and see what happens?

    I think I have 4 shoes in my collection from Sri, and they all may as well have been brand new when I got them. If I wore loafers, I'd be on these in a second at this price. Plus Sri is a real good guy.

    Hilarious Alden/Daddy story this afternoon:

    After putting on my whiskey LWBs, my 3 year old daughter comes over with the shoe brush, to brush em and make em shiny (not too bad a job either), and as she finished, I hear grunt coming from behind me, I look over to see my 2 year old son sitting on my LS Ultimate Jumpers that are airing out from yesterdays wear, sitting on them, pooping. Thankfully he's still in diapers, but it was just too funny not to share. :D

    Perhaps your son is an Allen Edmonds man.

    I was thinking as he was doing it that there's been more than enough shitting on the brand...but now that you put it that way, maybe my wife and I need to have a serious discussion about the paternity of the boy!
