1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    LWBs in Cigar, Whiskey, or Ravello? Which is more versatile? I will probably be wearing navy suits or jeans.

    That makeup strongly resembles Winn Perry's Cigar PTB from last year.

    Zippy,
    Thanks for the visual comparison. Have you had the opportunity to wear your pair? If so, what are your thoughts?

    Is there anyone here who wears half a size larger than their trubalance size in barrie. I am a 8 in trubalance, tried on an 8.5 in barrie today and it feels so much better. I think I'm gonna have to sell my size 8D barrie shoes/boots :angry:

    I've never been to the unionmade shop in SF. Anyone been there recently? I'll probably check them out on my next visit to SF

    I have 3 Barrie boots in size 8D and they fit similar to my barrie longwing blucher and PTB in size 7.5D. I think you can get away with more room for a boot since there's more ankle support. As for the NST boot in barrie, the particular pair I tried in 7.5D was a tad small, and in 8D was a tad large. Such a shame since I love the look of them.

    I wear 7.5E Barrie and Adam recommended 8E Leydon (AF79) for me. The fit is spot on.

    Yeah, I got them from Winn Perry back in February.

    I like the crepe sole since it's a little out of the ordinary. Quite comfortable too.
    I probably wouldn't have gone for the crepe if I didn't have a few other pairs of shoes (ahem).
    I've also got a similar pair in brown cxl with commando sole. I find myself wearing the crepe soles more often.

    I saw these in person at the new Allen Edmonds store in the Embarcadero center. They look pretty nice but feel much lighter than the Alden WT boot. It looked like part of the reason was that they are not lined with leather on the inside. The last also looked much narrower than the Barrie so perhaps that will appeal to some of the more feminine members of this forum :nest:
