This is consistent with my experience. I wear a size US9.5 dress shoe, and a size 9.5 or 10 sneaker. The size 42 in the Tanino low is a pretty good fit. I could probably go down to a size 41.5 if stores sold it, but size 41 would probably be too short.
The NYC Bloomies had a rack full of the stone colored blouson when I visited the Saturday before last. (I came up for the day from DC.) Not sure of sizes. I can PM you the name of the SA I met if you'd like.
The salesmen at M&S are rather attentive, to say the least. This is either good or bad, depending on how you view the benign neglect you receive at most clothing stores.Yep, I had the good fortune of being in Chicago on business right after the New Year.
I believe that the website does not necessarily reflect what is available. A week ago, I stopped into the store and inquired about some pants that the website was showing as available -- added to my cart and everything. The sales associate was unable to find the pants. Conversely, I have spotted items in the store that are not listed on the website.
