    Alden's other suede chukkas on the Leydon look so much better...not sure why J Crew decided to put this one on the Barrie.

    Basically all J Crew Aldens (except their loafers) have been in Barrie as far as I can tell. I like the Barrie last on the suede chukkas, but I don't like the lined aspect. With the normal suede chukkas, I need an E (thankfully, more stockists are ordering E widths in these narrow lasts).

    On the topic of narrower / sleeker lasts - does anyone have an Alden Plaza or Aberdeeon boot in E width? If so, how do they fit? How about Leydon shoes in E widths?

    It seems like lined chukkas are on the Barrie and unlined are on the Leydon.

    good point, this is probably true....I think LSW is planning on putting out a lined navy suede chukka at some point too, I should check and see if that will be on the Barrie as well.


    yeah I don't really like the lined version either, it almost looks too much like a Clarks DB.

    AoC Color 8 Wingtip on Leydon Last, E width. I wear a 9D in the Barrie last but it's a little bit long. The 9E on the Leydon fits me just right. I'm glad Epaulet had their MTO's all on the Leydon, I have found that it is the best fit for me. It isn't very sleek but then again neither is my foot.

    Pretty much. They had one pair of straight-tip bals on the Aberdeen last, the plain-toe boots, suede boots, and indy boots are all Trubalance, and the LHS were on the Van last. Other than that, everything else is on the Barrie, as far as I'm aware. I guess it's the most accommodating last, fits the most amount of feet.
