    mac has so many pics that he could totally recycle the old ones and not even bother taking new ones ... no one here would even notice since they are all so nice [​IMG]

    The Barrie is NOT as wide as the Trubalance in the forefoot. In the heel, the Barrie is wider. I have wide feet. I take a 10D Trubalance perfectly, but need a 10E or 10.5D in Barrie. They size similarly, but definitely not the same.

    I need a wider size in the trubalance than in the barrie. Everyone's foot is different. For most, their trubalance and barrie sizes are the same. Perhaps I should have been clearer in my generality.

    I understand that. It seemed like you said that you would size up from a 11.5 barrie dress shoe to a 12 barrie boot for more breathing room. Which I have never read before. Did I misunderstand?

    yes, you misunderstood (or i was not clear). i never said to size up. the shoes are made with more room in them, hence why people size down between 1/2 and 1 size. boots should have more toe room for breathability, and that's why it was ok for the toe to be at the moc stitching with more room in the toe area than would be acceptable in a dress shoe.

    ^ I absolutely LOVE your Unionmade tassels man. [​IMG] Thank god they have long sold out of my size.

    Mac, as always great shells. I'd love to see a collection post at some point but we all know that would require you to take a week off of work. [​IMG]

    Leathersoul's captoes on the plaza last, 3 years and going strong: [​IMG] If you're reading Tom, I'm looking for a new pair, so would be interested in some kind of exchange if you need some well-worn shoes for display [​IMG].

    Pretty sure after a good day in my Indy's they are slightly too narrow in the toes. Anyone know if the classic Indy 405 calf leather will stretch much? If I took it to the cobbler would he be able to use a stretcher on it? Or is that blasphemy?

    Should have gone with an E width prob.

    are these in color #8? I just bought a pair from them as well. I love how your pair has lightened up from a dark burgundy to a brown
