    So I've been pondering a size relation between Aberdeen and Barrie. Reading about the Aberdeen being a bit longer and narrower I tried a 11.5D and it fit perfect (tassel loafer) I measure a 12D on Brannock (on the narrow side of D) All my AE's have been 12D other than 65 Last. 11.5.

    With Barrie sizing and the recommendation to go 1/2 size down, would the idea be from the Brannock, or a known good fitting size. Like the Aberdeen loafer.

    Ideally I'd go try on a Barrie but just haven't been able to lately and its been eating away at me. Thanks gents!

    Note - I thought the boot looked like Trubalance but was told it was definitely Barrie. Might want to triple check before pulling trigger -- I'm also 98% sure my other specs are correct but inspected quickly on little sleep and no coffee. Believe they were $590.

    Do you recall how the apron sitiching looked? Was it squared off like the Indy or round like a Barrie Tanker?

    When it comes to rare shell, always buy now and ask questions later

    Id so be in on these if I didnt have Grain Indy's already. I just cant see owning both.

    Although I am very tempted to grab the NST's and sell the Indy's on eBay. hrrmm.

    Yea, learned my first lesson in this game. The hard way. I've put in a request online and will call later. I know they had them earlier this week. Unless someone is playing the rare shell retirement plan game and stock piling.

    In the meantime, can someone remind me the current Ravello builds going on. Might see if they ordered and big guy sizes.

    Might just shut down the computer and head to the bar.

    To paraphrase another level-headed lad, That is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend it.

    Quote:Seeing as the store replied and said they sold the shoe at 1:05 today. (I guess PM) that just confirms it. To bad I'm not wearing Bourbon AE's today. It would have fit the mood nicely...
