    Some sellers post the same pair of shoes under two different sizes, at the same time, with a buy it now. Or, if there is bidding, when one of them hits a given bid, they pull the other.

    With the Barrie, it's not a bad idea to check the auctions 1/2 size above and below.

    All good points sir. I never hesitate to contact the seller and ask for a pic of the sizing designation script inside of a shoe, or simply what size does the box say. I've bought items on eBay where many sellers will exchange phone #'s so I can ask every question that I can think of about an item.

    To me, the crazy thing is that none of them look like they have ever been worn.

    Does anyone know if Alden makes the tan suede Dover in the Leydon last? Or just Barrie?

    90% of everything is barrie.

    alden just doesnt have a great selection in it's stores/sites, very limited.

    Kinda sad, if you dont want something on barrie, then the only chance you have to get it is through group MTO (they even cut off individual MTO this year/last year). and even when you order it, it can take a year or more for the order to be fulfilled. (unlike carmina or vass where its 2-3 months)

    makes me sad because I would order from them a lot more if not for the above problems.

    That's a shame. I've given up on Barrie. Just sold my last 2 Barrie shoes recently. I just find the Leydon to be such a sleeker last. Maybe I'll just have to skip the Dover and grab the 1494s.

    I'm really hoping this is an old picture. Would be a shame if these are just sitting in a closet somewhere.

    Given up on it because of fit or lack of sleekness or both? Just curious ....
