    Alden x Leffot Naval Boots arrived today.[​IMG] Did anyone else who got these boots buy them in their tts and not their barrie size? I went barrie size, 11D, and it seems on first fitting that I should've gone with my tts of 11.5D like I had to with my Alden x J Crew perf cap toes. Could be just stiff new boots. Anyway, I will be employing a more extensive use of the Mac break-in Method thru the weekend with better pics to come.

    I think the rule with all Barrie lasted high boots is to at least consider going up either a length or width from your Barrie size in shoes. All of my Barrie boots fit snugger than my Barrie shoes - that said, I don't need a bigger size, while some may.

    The LHS is literally the only Alden model where whiskey is my first choice. After that, probably a toss-up between color 8/cigar/ravello. And of course they are all nice.

    9D Brannock and my 8.5D LWBs fit great. Otoh, the one pair of 8.5D Barrie boots I had were too small; I felt they ran short. If/when I get another Barrie boot, I'd def. consider going TTS 9D rather than up a width to an 8.5E.
