    Here's a sizing question for the forum: I wear an 8d in indy boots, so I assumed that I would also wear an 8d on the barrie last. I just received a pair of LWB and they feel really tight and constraining against my heal and the widest part of my foot. Anyone else need different sizes on the trubalance and barrie lasts? I'm nervous to send them back only to get something a half size up and slightly too big.

    Same. I have a cigar LWB with antique edging and a ravello LWB with dark edging. They contrast with each other nicely.

    One good turn deserves another: [​IMG] Alden x Epaulet Natural CXL Handstitched Indy on leather commando. Donegal tweed boot socks. I really like how this leather is aging. When it was new it looked ashy, but it's developing into a nice honey-brown.

    Yes, Barrie Last
    Indeed, Ravello LWB's. This was the makeup they had in my size so it worked out. Double waterlock soles as well
    Most welcome
    I'm psyched at the shade, thanks

    Thank you!

    Happen to be wearing my Whiskey LWB's today so here is a good Whiskey/Ravello comparison shot

    379X last. Length is the same as Trubalance though the toe shape is straighter, narrower overall, toebox has more depth.
