    Thanks. 20% off at Brooks Brothers. Not sure if the Aldens there are excluded.

    I'm looking to buy a pair of Whiskey longwings on the barrie last from theshoemart, however they don't have half sizes for the larger selection. I normally wear a US 13 D, for the barrie last should I downsize to a 12 or grab a 13?

    Uhm, why are you concerned about rare colors if you don't own any Aldens?
    You don't start a basecall card collection by looking for honus wagner.
    Cordovan #8 is probably the most versatile, but it depends on what styles you're into, how you wear em, etc.

    youre kinda in no mans land. if you went tts, they would be wearable but you'd need a insole. 12 would be too tight

    ^^Namor's response is good, but would also throw in the caveat about foot volume. If you have a foot that is on the narrower side the shoes will feel really large. On the Barrie, most of the sizing down is required because of volume - the toe box is very big. Agree totally on the sizing down a full size - likely the worse of the two options.

    I'm not seeing these on the site. I assume sold out and removed from the inventory system?

    I agree with the others as well. I wear a 10D and my Barrie LWBs are 9.5D. They are very comfortable, but I think 9D would definitely be too small.
