Sutor Mantellasi suede three-eyelet lace-ups with Norwegian welt and rubber heels/soles. As new, only tried on. They are marked "9 1/2" on the tongue, and I believe that they are 9.5D in US sizing since they fit me, and I'm a 9.5. However, here are the dimensions: 12.00" long along the sole/heel; 4.25" wide at the widest part of the sole. I forget what Sutor Mantellasi call the color--maybe mocha--but it should be clear from the pictures. These shoes come with...
Thanks Golden Tribe. I think I've got a handle on this now!

Thanks, GBR and Grigory. Actually, I had Googled "kashgora," but got slightly different results, even with the spelling, as "cashgora" seemed the more common spelling (although I wasn't sure it referred to the same thing). Am I correct in assuming that "angora" would most commonly refer to the angora rabbit, as opposed to the goat?
I have a brand-new, with tags, never-worn, camel-colored Corneliani overcoat (topcoat?) that I'm planning on selling on the buy & sell forum. However, there are a couple of things on the label that I'm not sure about and would appreciate any help you could provide in translating them. 1. Size: Given as 50 6 R. I get the 50--about equivalent to a US/UK 40. But what is the meaning of the 6 R? 2. Fabric Content: listed as "schurwolle 60 Angora 30 Kashgora 10". That's...
Monk Model with Broguing, U-last. Euro size 42--, which is to be interpreted, I believe, as 42.5, and which corresponds to 9.5D in US sizing. I am a 9.5, and these shoes fit. They measure 12.00" in length along the bottom of the sole/heel and are 3.98" wide at the widest part of the sole. Have been worn very little--perhaps 4-5 times--and have been well cared-for, living on Vass lasted shoe trees from Day 1. Color is, I believe, dark cognac, but pictures show the color...
The London Model with Stitched Upper, shell cordovan. Color is Bordeaux, or Horween's shell cordovan No. 8 color. Size designated 42--, or 42.5 Euro. Worn very little--perhaps 5 times at the most and kept on Vass lasted shoe trees from Day 1. Shoes come with the Vass lasted shoe trees. Reduced Price: $495 => $375 shipped via Canada Post Expedited Parcel service anywhere in North America. Other destinations may cost a little extra.
SOLD. I'm revising this ad to read size 10D US. Edward Green Carnegie black plain toe oxfords. Marked 9/9 1/2E, so either a long 9 1/2D or, more likely, 10D in US sizing. But consider the outside dimensions: length along sole and heel: 11.95"; width at widest spot on sole: 3.90". On EG888 last. First quality and barely worn--not more than 4 times. Kept in EG shoe trees since Day 1. Edward Green shoe trees included. Price reduced: $425 --> $400 --> $375, insured and...
SOLD. Vass U-Last 3-Eyelet Derbys. European size 43, or a US size 9.5. Length along bottom from tip of the sole to back of the heel: just a hair over 12.0"; width of sole at widest point: 4.06". Barely worn, perhaps 2 or 3 times at most. Color: either brown or a darker Vass cognac shade (can't remember which) with antiquing added. Pictures 2, 3, and 4 depict the color and antiquing quite well. Price reduced: $400 --> $375, and includes Vass lasted shoe trees and...
