    Anyone have pics of their Indy on the Barrie last? Curious as to how the stitching looks vis a vis on the TruBalance.

    the barrie toe box is not as bulbous.
    you might be right, but I would still insist its the tru-b.

    later i will post my tankers on the barrie as a comparison.

    Just curious - what did the SA (or manager) say as to the last? Or are we not willing to defer to the SA/manager on this one?

    ^ SA said it was barrie, several times. I was expecting TB. So, I asked. Asked again, then tried it on. Felt like a barrie, but who knows, toe is too "bulbous" to be barrie. Couldn't it be the angle tho, I pressed my iphone pretty close to take the pic...

    My personal brushing method is brush enthusiastically for a good while, and then, at the end of focusing on a certain area, I brush circularly, very lightly. Otherwise, the horsehair leaves little lines in the oils raised by brushing. If you buff after brushing, you probably don't have to worry about this.

    The store manager just emailed me. It is the Barrie.

    BTW, said store manager - Jim - is great to deal with.

    yeah, Jim is great.
    the whole staff there is pretty awesome.

    I once bought a pair of wingtip boots from alden nyc which they told me repeatedly was on the grant last. not long after, i went back to talk about the fit and they told me they were they had been misinformed by the factory and they are on the barrie.

    To all that commented on my post about brushing too hard - I was responding to the post above (what I should have added is in all my years I've never seen anyone scratch shell using a horsehair brush)
