    They are. They are both on the Barrie last. However some have reported here that that particular boot runs a bit snug

    rydenfan beat me to it. My brannock size is 11D and all my Barrie shoes & boots are a half size down with the exception of that jcrew boot which I had to go tts to 11D.

    Does anyone stock the ranger moc in #8? I know Union Made has it but it has a crepe sole which I would prefer not to have.

    Fantastic look all around here. May I ask what the jeans are?

    DV, love your compositions. Is it asking too much for more pics at different angles?

    Ranger Moc could be a sweet make-up. I think the Unionmade version has that horizontal line of stitching across the side, which I don't like, but I've seen other versions that don't have it.

    It would be cool unlined in cigar with blind eyelets. I'm usually not a fan of the crepe, but might prefer it in such an application.

    I can't speak from experience, but I don't see why it would not stretch at least a little. Are you thinking that maybe the canvas lining will prevent it from doing so?

    Also, would your foot's impression on the cork bed alleviate the tightness? Or has an impression already been made in the cork?

    Those look great Bakes. I created something similar myself from Rancourt

    These are all very good choices. :nodding: In my judgment, an Alden fan having all of these in his closet is something to strive for.

    Yeah I wasn't sure if the canvas would prevent it from stretching in that area or what. As for the cork bed, I'm not quite sure. It's a used boot, but supposedly used only once for hiking then never worn again .So it's scuffed up but new looking overall, if that makes sense.

    The stress area is RIGHT where the tongue stitching meets the vamp. It feels tight without the lacing even being there. I'm just worried it will never stretch enough.
