    TB is just larger in all respects. The heel, forefoot, everything. Def made for boot socks. I have boots with barrie and TB, the barrie I can wear with lighter socks, no problem, the TB need boot socks, both same size. The Alden rep I spoke to mentioned that the TB in particular, but also the barrie are purposely made to accommodate heavier socks that most folks like to wear with boots. That said, although he mentioned to try them both in TTS, I'd go down a half with TB, maybe not with barrie. As always, try them on if at all possible with the socks intended.

    I would take what the reps say with a grain of salt.
    many of the experts I've seen have disseminated some pretty ridiculous information.

    I've had good luck directing my questions to Kathy and Joe in D.C.

    No love for me this month from TSM. Would anyone mind sending me the Seconds List for 11.5 and 12d if you have them? Thanks.

    Mr Mac - I really enjoy your pics. Your various OTCs really lifted the look of the shoes. So classic and classy!
