I was thinking Feb-March period when I'm visiting home (Malaysia). Funny how Malaysia has Isetan too, but the Isetan there sells total rubbish.
Thanks for the suggestions nutcracker. I wear roughly a size 8.5E (asian feet) so not a problem at all I've been tempted to go to Japan for a sushi hunt (Jiro, and Sushisho Masa who apparently is better than Jiro).

Also, is the cut on the knit shirts really slim? It would help if someone could compare their sizes that they wear in other brands with the sizing of the knit shirts (S,M,L etc).
Ahh, I see. MTO w/ PRET Custom as quoted above actually refers to "Pret customization" by Saint Crispin's, where you can add or subtract width on a standard last. An example would be, I had 2 pairs made on UK7F, and later on figured out that they were too narrow. I recently sent my shoes back to Romania where their factory is, and requested it to be re-lasted on UK7.5F, with 3mm added to the toe adjustments.
