1) Since I'm not a fan of loafers, and live in deathly hot south Florida, what are my options for casual shoes to wear with shorts? I sweat far too much to wear pants during the middle of summer. Keep in mind that I'm in my early 30s.
2) Similarly, I'm not crazy about button-down collars on casual shirts (I know this may be slightly controversial here). What are some other CM-approved collar options for casual shirts? Pics would be great...
I am still waiting to hear back from Luxire. I'd imagine I'll increase the front by 1/4" at the chest and 1/2" at the waist and bottom, and not remove anything from the back chest but remove 1/4" - 1/2" from the back waist and bottom. I am more concerned with the shoulder and creasing around the armpits, which may be a result of slope angle more so than tightness.
I had a similar question about sizing and got a very fast response after emailing customer service. I also wear an E width in that AE last and they recommended to size up half a size to compensate, so I'm guessing they'll tell you to buy a 12.
Thank you, I will reach out to him. Does he have a direct email address? I am hoping to make a purchase decision in the next two weeks.To clarify, in your opinion, you don't think it would be necessary to size down from the US 9E to your UK sizing? I thought it was customary to reduce by a half to a full size. I'll do some reading on your return policy, just in case.
