    back to the irregulars for a moment, i ended up not being able to resist the natural chromexcel indy boot on the BARRIE last. never much of a fan of the trubalance, i'm really curious to see how these turn out!
    There have been a few occasions, at least in my experience with irregulars, that the lasts listed on the in the seconds e-mails turned out to be incorrect. It happened on 2 pairs that I ordered from the last list. I could be wrong, but I don't believe the Indy Boot has ever been made on the Barrie last, at least for non-custom orders. Hope they work out for you.

    Yeah, I was slightly afraid that might be the case. besides eyeballing them, is there any way to know for sure what last they are built on?

    You can call Alden and tell them the style number inside the shoe. They could probably confirm.

    Of course you can try them on and see how they fit [​IMG]

    my feet are too pure for the trubalance last and thus have never touched them. but yes, I will call middleborough on my direct line and see what they say (from a red phone on my bedside table, i might add)

    as is apropos, the seconds email list can indeed be flawed. I have seen shoes described with the wrong color, and last as well.

    ^ Barrie last in boots can look nice. Never seen an Indy on the Barrie, though, as those are usually on the Trubalance.

    The natural chromexcel plain toe boot on the Modified last is gorgeous. I think it's a Shoemart exclusive.


    if indy on the barrie is for real, would cop

    Gorgeous. The ravello wingtip is one of the last Alden's I want to buy. At least for now... [​IMG] Are these on the Barrie last?
