    Discovered this forum and Alden a couple months ago, a little lighter in the wallet since then, and I make my first post upon receipt of these beauties.

    Thanks all. Ordered them from frans boone, they call it the navy workboot in cigar, though I don't own Indy boots, they do look like them. Was skeptical about the crepe sole, but they are very comfortable out of the box, we'll see how they hold up....

    ^^ I do believe workboot is the official name for the Indy. I figured they were Frans Boone when I saw the shape. They are beauties. Congrats again.

    I have an original Rosen ARG that is over 20 years old that's still going strong. Is that a Solo you're running?

    So a few weeks back I had posted about my decision between 2 pairs of PTBs (Unionmade Officer Shoe vs Epaulet Tyrol)...

    I ended up getting the Officer shoe (which I love) but knew right away I had to have the Tyrol as well..

    My first pair of Alden's were on the Berrie and at the time, assuming I was a 10 on the braddock I went with a 9.5. I would not say the shoe was too big but just a little roomy in the toe area so when it came time to pick a size in the Leydon last (Officer Shoe) I chanced it on the 9.5 and have had no regrets.

    So now I am faced with another Berrie PTB purchase and am struggling between another 9.5 that will be a touch roomy in the toe or sizing down to a 9 which should either be just like my 9.5 Leydon (perfection) or….to small..

    any input would be greatly appreciated.

    and pic just bc :)

    ^^^Personally I would go with the larger size. I like the ability to wear a thick sock...even where I live in Florida.

    Hello guys,


    Been a SF member for ages but have been MIA for a while. Was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what sizing in need in a Barrie Last for Alden.

    I presently where McNairy in a size 9us and in a Vans Era in 10.5. I know I really should go get measured but was wondering if anyone knew what sizing I should be shooting for going off these two shoe brands.

    I was thinking 9.5us in a Barrie but I am starting to second guess myself and think i need a size 10.

    If anyone can please shed some light on this it would be appreciated.

    Doubful. I wear 10 US in McNairy and I'm 9.5D Barrie. You're probably 8.5D in Barrie. The Barrie is .5 larger than TTS. McNairy is TTS.
