    Has anyone tried both the grant and Barrie last, and could tell me whether the grant fits TTS or slightly larger like the barrie? LS had said they're similar in terms of length but the grant is slightly narrower in width. I went up a 1/2 size from my Barrie fit on this order so I hope all is well.

    Come on dude, there are 52,000 posts in this thread. Learn to fish. That question has been asked and answered dozens of times. Just type your query into google and append site:styleforum.net. It even works in Bing. FWIW, I take the same size in Barrie and Grant. The Grant is a snugger fit for me though.

    Lots of nst love. It's also nice to see some calf around here. Was it donl with a ravello nst in his collection? I've been wishing I had those.

    Is there a general consensus (or do people have strong feelings) as to which suede color is better (more versatile)? I have been leaning towards snuff but recently, the more I see tan the more I like it. If anyone happens to have a photo of the two colors next to each other (in natural light) it would be interesting to see.

    snuff is theoretically the most versatile and i was 100% sure i was going to get it.

    then i walked into the store and tried it on and it looked odd to me.

    then i tried on the tan and it's perfect.

    store guy said that snuff was definitely more versatile and you "have to get used to it" but it goes with more colors. he sells way more of the tan and the dark brown though...which are further on the spectrums.

    Alden Madison is now expecting ravello PTBs in 4-6 months for anyone wanting to pre-order. Seems as though it will be raining exotics by end of year.
