    Had a great visit to Leffot today. I couldn't resist the captoe #8 boots with antique edge. Pics to come when they arrive next week...

    Yep, the inventories are different. Note: the online folks will do a nationwide search for you of their retail stores. I have found numerous models this way.

    I know this has probably been asked a million times, but the BB Unlined cordovan penny model 06603 is on what last?

    I'm a 9.5D barrie, 10C Aberdeen. Would 9.5D work?

    You should be a 9.5D or 9.5C.

    Excellent purchase rydenfan. Looking forward to some pics. If you could please do the whole YouTube unboxing video thing. I'd like to see what my Alden x Leffot Naval Boots might look like if that pre-order ever comes thru.

    Any thoughts on my previous pics., does the width looks good? Lenght is fine ,I'm worried about the width.

    Thanks.

    Thanks! I was back and forth between that and the J Crew captoe boot. Both are really great looking and I love the closed heel of the J Crew. However, what I have discovered is that while an 8D Barrie shoe fits me well, a 7.5E in the Barrie boot is better for me. You know it's a real sickness when you are already thinking about the next pair before even taking possession of these... :)

    Dude, you have the shoes and you put them on your feet and you can't tell if they're the right size?
    People on the interwebz can't help you with that. People on the interwebz can't tell how they fit based on a pic of you pointing at your shoe.
    Some people can tell you what you want to hear or make shit up to mess with you but c'mon, you should be able to tell if they fit or not.

    And whether you decide your unlined suede chukkas fit or not, bear in mind that the cordovan ones are on a different last and fit different.

    Maybe you didn't read my first post , I know that nobody can tell if they fit but I asked if it's true that the LWB are roomier than th PTB both on same last , also these are not unlined Chukkas these are lined PTB's and are on the same last as the LWB I'm interested (barrie) I even posted a pic of the #'s inside to make sure they're on the Barrie last since I don't know what the #'s mean , anyways thanks for your help.

    Sorry, was viewing the post from my phone and I didn't zoom it. They looked like chukkas at first glance.

    I think what you're reading regarding PTB fitting different from LWB on the same last is the result of confirmation bias.
    One should go in with the assumption that Barrie lasted shoes are going to fit like Barrie lasted shoes.
    I have well over 2 dozen pairs of various Barrie models. I can think of 3 pairs that fit slightly different than the rest. I have a PTB and a wingtip which feel larger and a cap toe boot which feels smaller.
    I don't doubt that there's some small variation in fit from a specific run of shoes to others, it's just that I don't think you can make a generalization such as LWBs fit different from PTB.
    Given Alden's manufacturing QC, I don't think uniformity of product is something they're shooting for or is even on the map.

    My standard Snapseed+ techniques have come under fire recently. So here's some no-filter to tide all y'all over. Hope this can help a few wondering how CXL behaves with time, Reno, brushing, and love.

    Alden x Epaulet Natural Chromexcel Longwing Blucher, at 6 months. Freshly MacMethod'd.
