    Why don't you watch your profanities--your profanation of my Lord and Savior is a complete insult. I'm dead serious here.

    Wow Tom those look fantastic. How is the workmanship? I know nothing will be quite as 'tight' as the origional Alden built, but are you happy with the result?

    are those inlined? The creasing is so defined...

    I have the same pair on order. I take a 9.5D in the Barrie but have gone TTS (10D) in my Grant Cigar CapToe boots. These fit me well, as the Grant last is a bit slimmer than the Barrie. That said, I read that others go with the same size as their Barrie's. I would recommend going TTS.

    ^are you serious? There is a good inch gap, there is no way they would stretch to the point where the two sides would touch.
