    Let's agree to disagree. The model number corresponds with what is on the Alden Madison website plus I know how my feet fit in both the Barrie and Leydon lasts. I previously owned the Suede unlined chukka in 9D and the AoC Brown Wingtip boot in 8.5D and both were on the Leydon last. There is no way I could fit a 8D. Here is the inside pic of the model number while below it is a picture of the soles of my Barrie lasted LS Brown CXL Pitt Boot in 8.5D and the Snuff Suede PTBs in 8D

    It's like I said. You got a different shoe then.

    I also know my size on the Barrie, and my foot would be absolutely swimming in a normal TTS on the Barrie. Just look at the sizing chart. The barrie is nowhere near the middle of the chart.

    I also posted a picture side by side of my suede ptbs to the sizing chart.

    Are you really going to say that the picture I provided demonstrates that the suede ptb is more like the Barrie than the Leydon? Just look at the arches. The difference is striking:

    Look, here's mine next to yours (mine on the left), clearly they aren't on the same last. Mine is Leydon. Yours is most likely Barrie:

    Here's the model number of mine:

    I like these ^^^^ navy short wings a lot. Anyone who doesn't already have navy suede in his line-up should move on these.

    He pm'd me last week when he purchased them that I was first on the list should he want to sell. Unfortunately, for all you bring to this forum, I wouldnt be offended if they went to you. Your contribution to the Epaulet thread keeps me coming back everyday to see your fit pics. Bravo.

    Your six eyelet chukka is superb & it's nice to see the cobblestones back.
