    Yeah, I did it on purpose on my right foot so I could tie them a little tighter.

    Let us know how they go for you. I am also a 9.5 in the Barrie and these LWBs fit so well. I'm sure you'll love them.

    True. However, knowing when he plans on returning them would be helpful information to have.

    That shoelace site is no joke I just learned that I've been using a Granny knot for the past 26 years or so

    Another problem with this picture is the left boot has a bar lacing and the right boot has a criss cross lacing

    NAMOR you are a bad influence. I'm conflicted because I plan on getting a #8 LWB (ironically I have a Ravello and Whiskey pre-order LWB but not the 'basics') and worry that the black and #8 would be too close. I do agree about the BBBF similarity. I can have Nick V. attach a thread at the heel I'm sure. :D Oh yes, what's the term 'DB'?

    The LWB in black is very sharp, but I've always been under the impression that more detail and broguing were more appropriate for something *not* in black (ie. office wear). I've been leaning more towards a captoe/medallion to cover those basics.

    Nevertheless, Namor comes through again with tempting Alden porn.

    Wonderful - perhaps you can apply the same logic and rational to your own mystification on the appeal of the Barrie last.
