    The last picture shows the inside numbers (978xxx). I have seen some LWBs on Leydon but my guess this is Barrie.

    I for one would love some two tone saddles too. I'd love a pair on the Barrie with a Ravello front/back and Navy mid-foot. It'd basically be my AE Finch but in Shell. YUM.

    Ok, I'll keep dreaming.

    tifosi, I wear the exact same size Barrie and Grant as you and I find that size 8.5C Van works best for me. It took me about 10 wears to break them in fully though. Good luck.

    Hmmm. Down a width, huh? That might be something to consider. Thanks, alex!

    Barrie size works best. I went down 1/2 from Barrie once on Whiskey LHS. Too short and had to flip. The unlined BB Cordovan version is tighter overall than the lined, I've never had a Suede unlined LHS, maybe someone could chime in on that model fit?

    On subject of LHS, if I can score one in an exotic color i like and in my size -- even if I don't know yet that I really love the LHS (though I like it) for use in my wardrobe -- should I buy first, make up my mind later? I'm torn. I can probably flip (for cost) right?

    I know this sounds a bit obnoxious. Thanks.

    That is one way to do it. I don't see you having an issue selling them. We aren't the same size are we??? haha

    It's not obnoxious at all.

    It'd be obnoxious if you were buying them and they weren't in your size and you were doing just for $$$.

    sorry but no.


    . I appreciate. Have to figure out if I can justify the $ for a loafer. A boot or shoe is easier for me to swallow.

    I agree. It's tough when some shell boot models are less money than an exotic shell loafer.

    Gentlemen, I know this question has been asked before but I'll try again. Where can I find a good shell belt in color 8 to wear with my #8 captoe boots? I've had BB shell belt but returned it some time ago.

    thanks

    Even though my 9016 from yesterday got no love, I will not be discouraged.

    Suited up again with the 9015 today. This time paired with a charcoal instead of last week's navy. Herringbone instead of yesterday's solid charcoal.

    Great looking shoe, Bakes. Something like that will be my next balmoral purchase.
