    YMMV, I haven't owned any of these lasts but I've tried on both the 337 and the Inca. Those are all relatively wide fitting lasts, and UK8 is generally 8.5 to 9 US, so I think you should do well with Barrie 8D or 8.5D. On a narrower more true to size last like Plaza you probably want to try a 9D, maybe even a 9E.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I have received the same advice as well, they say to go with a 8.5D on the Barrie last. Now, just hope that the size is available...

    Have a pair of these, great shoe! I emailed Bryan at LS today asking for the snuff suede pair also

    EDIT: Just after writing this received email from Bryan telling me that the snuff suede are on the way from Hawaii.

    Yeah, it was impossible to resist.

    These are ridiculously awesome too (not mine, pics stolen from MC thread)...

    Quite the opposite - I deal with Ken Sherman in Haverford and he couldn't be better to deal with - which location do you interact with?

    he's been very helpful and patient with me, too.

    I must say I'm impressed with Shoemart. About 2 months ago I called to speak to one of the owners to inquire about when more Whiskeys were going to come in. I made a phone order on a pair of PTBs and was told that it can take as long as 1 year with no expected ETA. Fast forward to today, FedEx delivered them at 8:30 PM.

    I will post a picture when I get my black shell LWBs next week. [​IMG]

    To me nothing beats seeing the pictures of shoes in this thread. It always delivers. One thing that does drive me nuts though, are the shoes I see posted that I absolutely LOVE (like the recent postings of several saddles) that I know just won't work for me. Those navy and snuff saddles are so gorgeous, but with my aesthetic I feel I'd look like a complete tool in them. Anyone else feel this? OK, rant over, carry on. [​IMG]

    I feel the same way as you, I can't pull off a saddle shoe even though they look great. I'm more SW&D then MC.
