    Is there something specific that is causing doubt? Size/fit, color, pattern, sole, coordinating items (pants, shirt), etc?

    Assuming you are referring to the ones BB currently offers, they are made by C&J. I own them, and like them. Their burgundy shell is somewhat different than Alden's 8 in terms of color and finish.

    The only questionable thing is the leather sole as I will be wearing these casually and they look dressy. I really don't know if I am better off with commando soles or a better brand

    QC be it either Alden or AE is a lost art it seems. For that matter till you get to the 800+ shoes there seems to be a lack of GC

    Lovely purchase. Do you wear the same size and width for Barrie and Modified lasts? How do you find Barrie vs Modified?

    The carpet only makes the boots that much more gorgeous. What are those? Cigar on Modified last?

    I had the same problem with plain toe boots from J Gilbert. Alden fixed them once. The speed hooks got loose again. I sent the boots back 2 Yenni and she sent me a new pair. it seems many people have been complaining about this issue.

    I find the modified to be superior for me, unquestionably. I went up to 10.5D on the Barrie, and it's a good fit; I am a solid 10D on the modified. I can also do a 9.5E on modified, but I'm afraid to do an E width on Barrie, because of the strangely wide and low heel cup, even on the D. But for these, I made an exception. Trubalance fits me really well in 10D as well.
