    Wonderful.

    I have the BB version of this shoe. But whether it's the BB Version or the factory 2160 (pictured), this shoe should be in every businessman's wardrobe. :nodding: And so should the 2161.

    Yep - that's why I identified it as the 2160 in my post. :D Heels are different; so is the last.

    Wow, that's interesting. I'm the same size --- 7.5D Barrie/Trubalance/Modified and 8.0D in others. And the Epic Small's are pretty tight in some of my boots, although I could see room for it being slightly larger in other boots. So, Bakes, in regards to your question, I think you'd probably be happy with a Large since imolazhp is able to get a medium Epic into his size shoe.

    from that angle, it looks like your foot is too wide for the shoe and/or excessive stretch of the cxl

    I'm a wide in Barrie. I'm thinking this may be true for you, too.

    I know that very well - I am a 9.5E in Barrie. I still push up a bit against the sides in that size... In cordovan, my feet conform more to the shoe. With CXL, it is a bit of the opposite. I've tried EE in some sizes, but the difference hasn't been enough for me to require it. I can wear Barrie Longwings in 10D but not other models (like captoe boots, which I've sold)

    Edit - Trubalance in 10D also works very well for me

    So I gave Hunt Club Clothiers in Cincinnati a call after hearing that their clearance sale extended to Aldens (in this thread). They confirmed this and confirmed that they can ship orders, but sadly my size was out of stock and it would be a 14 week wait.

    Just figured I'd let everyone know. Sale extends through the end of the month.
