Gay marriage is legal in UK now?

Laughing out loud …. he phrased it in such way that you'd think he's some kind of gender equality champion.

You two are both single. One of you (at least) has a criminal record for stalking.

Barrie for sure IMO. I'd say that the barrie and van are equally roomy, but the vamp is lower on the loafers that tend to use the van. I've heard the van described as boxy.

FWIW I have barrie-lasted derbies in 9.5d and 10d, and van-lasted LHS loafers in 9.5d. The loafers are quite short in length but I needed the smaller size (9.5 rather than 10) to get them to stay on my heels. The 9.5 loafers are visibly much shorter in length then the derbies in the same size.

I don't know about the Van but Barrie fits very large, I'm a 10.5/11 in most things and my Aldens are a UK 9 and fit perfectly.

Massdrop x carmina oxford for $350 incl fitted shoe trees is a good buy. They retail for more than this usually and are excellent quality shoes.

Yeah I've seen that before, yeah no length,

Superprecise, your answer tells me everything I need to know. Thanks

GG - yeah I've only got Barrie lasts, PTBs and All Weather Walkers, the AWWs fit shorter in the same size though.
