    Yup, you win.


    Theoretically I could pull of 7C. I actually have a pair of Ravello LWB in 6E that fits fine so I assume the other end of the spectrum (7C) would work width wise and just be a little elongated.

    I find NY Alden, Alden of SF, and Alden of DC are good with marginalized sizes if you willing to wait.

    I'm still waiting to find a place that is going to run boots in Whiskey so I can pre-order...

    I think Epaulet is trying to work on a Whiskey wingtip boot, but don't quote me on that.

    I'm in the same boat as you, however I was fortunate enough to score a pair of the Unlined Whiskey Shell PTBs from Brooks Brothers. Was a limited Alden run for BB. That has been the only van lasted loafer that has worked for me.

    I'm actually a 7.5B by measurement and in the Hampton last. I conjecture that I would be a 7B in the Barrie.

    That is correct; Whiskey wingtip boot on Plaza with a commando sole and antique edgetrim that I helped coordinate and put together. Mike and I discussed it last week and he mentioned that he will be putting up a preorder on his site in the next couple weeks. Keep your eyes peeled and be prepared to wait 9 - 12 months at minimum.
