    Just wanted to share that I was sent the navy suede indy from Leffot in a 9d (I have a pair of 9d barrie cordovan boots that fit fairly well) I returned them in favor of the 8.5d marble suede indy. Got them tonight, and they are amazing. Going to be my go to for jeans/lighter colored slacks this summer. Out of 4 or 5 pairs of aldens this is my new fave.

    Also, I might have been the last one to snag a reserved pair of the Ravello day trippers in 9d a few weeks ago, hopefully the grant will work out, otherwise I might have to check myself into a mental hospital bc those things are gorgeous!

    I wonder if it will be the version below, or the earlier version with the whiter contrast stitching. Prefer the one below over the latter.

    Although after reading Tom's comments, the darker stitching is from wax and oil

    Colin at Leffot has simply stated "early Fall" (which will be early Spring for me!) Can't come soon enough!

    Hey all, I got a width sizing question. I wear an 8E on Leydon, 7.5E on Barrie, 7.5E on Trubalance right now. The 8E generally fits the best for me. The 7.5E Barrie fits well length and is comfortable width wise, but I have a lot of extra space on top, which lets me close the vamp to maybe 15mm or so, pretty much closer than I've seen everyone wear their Barries here. Comfort wise, the 7.5E I have to lace a bit to get the vamp together, so after a long day my instep gets irritated.

    I was fit in a Barrie 7.5E at Alden SF and 7.5D at LSBH, but the 7.5D was pretty snug width wise (was advised that Cordovan shoes were made slightly larger), but the vamps were distanced correctly. Anyways, question is, if Cordovan is a bit snug is it worth trying to get a little give in them from use? Would buying normal width shoes in Calf be too snug (none available to try on)?

    We'll have to arrange an official Day Tripper images day after ours are all shipped to us.
