    If they don't feel good, definitely return them. I assume you are talking about 1339s? Since those are unlined they will fit even more generously than a lined Barrie last shoe, and you might need to size down to get a good fit.

    I got them from J. Crew during a sale - it'd be criminal to return them and not pass the savings along to someone else on the forum. Size 11.5D. Interest?

    Navy suede Cap toe boot (plaza last with crepe sole) -- Damn it...That would be perfect on commando. For me, crepe would ruin the look. Otherwise that is a perfect look. Shame.

    I hope Tom doesn't mind a potentially premature release on these, but I believe these will be available in store today. I pre-ordered them in my (impossible to get otherwise narrow) size around 18 months ago.

    Very nice! I'm sure Tom will cut you some slack, after all you did design your own great looking boot for LS. Enjoy wearing them.

    ^Thanks. I saw he had posted partial shots as a tease on his blog, so I figure he'll be okay.
