    ^ Excellent Uncle....my next shell purchase will definitely be something in Cigar. Don't know when or what it will be, but I need some Cigar in my life.

    Beautiful!! Still kicking myself for not taking advantage at Orvis. When I finally confirmed the last, they were out of my size.

    What is the last on the Orvis ones? I snagged a pair for $399.20! They were only sale for $499. but there was some sort of glitch on their site such that when checking out, it was $399.20. Or, maybe the ones I got are seconds, but it did not state that.

    I wasn't even sure if it was color 8 or black that I was ordering as they don't say on their site. I didn't really care at that price though.

    Hi Simplicio,

    i made the same experience today by myself. Sizing down 1/2 from Barie did't help to avoid heel slipping. I accept the Van don't fit my feet unfortunately. Must try C&J - also a very nice loafer.

    Orvis indicated to me and several others that it was the Tremont last but those that have received them confirm that it's the Barrie.

    Cigar... This is on my list too. What to buy though? I have my eye on some of the oxfords on the Alden NY site as something very different for me, and a little dressier than these and my other gunboats, if I can expand Mac's appositely description of the Barrie LWB to my other Barrie last Aldens. My goal is to get to NY or perhaps DC and try something on to size the lasts.


    Thank you. Funny thing, apropos the quote below, is that I decided to buy based on the misinformation from Orvis customer service about the last. Thought I was going to jump my Barrie track, and by the time we confirmed otherwise I was already in for the shipping. $18.95 is $18.95, you know. :) Looking forward to getting out and about in these.


    Definitely confirmed as the standard 975 Barrie LWB. And definitely color #8. You must have gotten the super, extra secret clearance price. Good on you.
