    Well the ball of my foot ends up at the widest part of the shoe on both lasts. So I would say a bit snugger on the width on the 1 last. My foot felt a bit more cozy in the 1 than the barrie. Still comfortable and not tight at all.

    In many ways I wish these were my first Alden shoes. I like how you show how they can be worn casually

    The Regina grain dark is a very dark slightly textured leather. Union made has used it on previous models. Very nice

    Same here. Chinos and khakis at work and jeans at play. I have to be able to wear them casually or I'd never wear them, really.

    Yes, Mr DV ! That, and more so the fact that anytime I have a $50 bill, no one seems to want to take it! They just give me that loooooook....You know that looooook.

    Do I look like I just printed this in my basement??? ( Of course not, a friend did it for me )

    That was really funny DV, got a big laugh out of that.

    Grant last fits me oddly...not enough wiggle room in the toe box.

    That J Gilbert list looks tasty. 2014 looks to be a more scarce year for shell than 2013. Good for my wallet. More Grants.

    I'm glad someone understands my alden humor.
    Yes, I know that look. The clerks at the thrift store register run $20 bills by a machine, swipe a highlighter pen over them, and hold them up to the light BEFORE giving me the look.
    I never know what to do while that's happening. I feel like my cell is being searched at shawshank for contraband.

    Details please
