    So if I'm wearing 8.5 Trubalance should I go 8.5E barrie?

    I was asked about shoe trees once, but never the shoes themselves

    Same here. Of course, my standard Walgreens purchased toothbrush once confused TSA, so it's hard to say what they are going to do.

    Most people don't, but YMMV. I comfortably wear 10D in both Barrie and Trubalance, and 10E/10.5D/10.5E in other lasts I have tried.

    I assume the same under TB and Barrie, unless you tried them both on and considered otherwise.

    It is great to see a pair of work boots treated like work boots not a pair of John Lobbs. A fantastic pair of boots.

    Just give a differing experience... I take a standard D-width in the Trubalance (I fill it out fully through the pinky toe) and a D-width Barrie is too narrow. I think the thing to note is that most people don't fully fill out the Trubalance.

    Interesting to see a 360 degree welt on an Indy.

    That #4 Indy is a unique makeup. What sole is on that? Was that from the shoe mart?

    Never had an issue either, especially since we remove shoes here in the states. It was such a relief traveling to Europe and not removing shoes through security.

    I've been asked about shoe trees in my carryon suitcase a few times. Once I tell them what they are, they allow me to pass.

    I ordered a pair of Alden snuff suede loafers, 6243F and go them today,
    but they seem darker than I expected, like dark brown.

    any advice?
