    Get a deer bone and rub it around the scratch. You can buy them from the Hanger Project.

    I'm assuming the JCrew PCT you are referring to is on the Barrie last and therefore it is a little strange that this is tight on you but 8.5 Trubalance fits. I'd say most people take the same size in Barrie and Trubalance.

    ^^ I have one and highly recommend it. A little wider than a dress belt but works equally well with jeans or dress pants ^^

    Sorry for a sizing question, but for a Grant last boot, do most do Barrie + 1/2? Specifically, I'm an 11 D Barrie, so would most advise 11.5 D Grant? I specified a Grant last boot because sometimes people say boots fit different from shoes.

    I go True to Size on both Grant and Barrie but if anything, you would go down in the Barrie as is a wider toe box than the Grant. I have booths in both lasts and they are the same size.

    Interesting, TTS on Barrie?

    If it helps, I think my true size is 11.5 D (haven't been sized on a Brannock in a while), and I'm an 11.5 D on the AE 5 last.
