    I go up both half a number size and from D to E from my shoes on the Barrie last to my Leydon last suede chukkas. Going up just half a number size without also increasing the width was not comfortable to me.

    I just got back from a trip for work and was greeted by pair of the tan unlined chukkas. Sized up a half size from barrie and they are way too narrow for me.

    Not sure if I should try to send them back and get a wider width, or just go with the barrie from Tom.

    Also I think the steel shank is looks since there's a weird clicking sometimes when I walk.


    Shoemart will be getting my pair of 11.5Ds back today - I am requesting an exchange for 12Ds. Hopefully that will work... if not, back again for 12Es.

    I would have just gone ahead with Tom's Barrie last in 11D instead, but he didn't have any in that size.

    Got an email stating that my J Crew Alden Indys will be shipping today. Woo Hoo! I guess they're staggering back into stock if you've placed an order around the end of February...

    do you guys consider Whiskey shell to be a year round color? is it something you would wear with charcoal or navy trousers in the winter?

    I think of whiskey as 3 season excluding winter.

    Thinking about trying to cancel my Roy Boot order.

    I paid for them in December and they're not due 'til June. Not their fault--I called in Feb. and changed my size after trying the Barrie last in a store, which of course set my order back. But it sucks having the funds tied up with nothing to show for it. Fine for a cigar indy, maybe, but not sure it's worth it for these Roy Boots.
