Due to the nature of the Billy Reid size tags, could it have been mismarked?
Really? I found the measurements on Billy Reid website for the large to be reasonably close. My large charcoal peacoat (since sold - but I did keep the measurements) had a pit-to-pit of 21.5 inches. The shoulder was 18.5 inches, and the sleeve length from shoulder to cuff was 26.5 inches. So, slightly bigger in the chest, smaller in the shoulders, and longer in the sleeves, but all within around half-an-inch of what is on the website. However, I do currently own a Billy...
I too have a wide foot and I had brought up the width problem with Clarks a while back in this thread. Everyone said to size down but I had to size up...well, sometimes. At one Nordstrom's Rack the US11.5M were listed as a UK10,5 G. They fit well. But at Designer Shoe Warehouse the US11.5M were tagged as a UK10.5 F and were too narrow. I had to size up half a size and even so they were narrower than the Rack boots. But some other sizes at DSW were G width. Emails to Clarks...
 I agree completely. But I'm finding Uniqlo and H&M to be worthless for fillers as well. In my last three stops into Uniqlo (and 3 stops into H&M) I've come away with exactly one pair of shorts. 
Nice looking bag. I look forward to your review. I'm curious how true to color the pictures are. On my monitor the brown looks a little on the reddish side. I like the idea of a green briefcase, as long as isn't garish.
Don't forget the Herring Shoes Summer Sale through Sunday. Discount code HSSUB25.   I did try to email Herring with some sizing and last questions but didn't get a reply. The person I chatted with online from Herring couldn't tell me anything beyond what I had learned here or on other forums. I pulled the trigger on a pair of chukka boots. Hopefully they will fit. I just couldn't bring myself to spend the money on a pair of Churches for a G fitting even with the 25%...
I was trying on some Bushacre2s today. The stores I was at didn't have any in brown suede so I was just checking for fit. I normally wear an 11.5. While all were listed as 11.5 M width in US sizes some were also listed as UK 10.5 G and some were merely UK 11. For my wide foot the G was true to size while the others were too narrow. So if I have to order online how do I guarantee getting a wider shoe when they all have the same listing for US width? Edited to add: I...
I'm impressed. This looks much better than previous Bond style peacoats you posted in the past. The buttons are placed more like what I expect to see and the proportions of the coat are better.  A question: could you produce a cotton version in a navy or midnight blue or perhaps a charcoal? And could a fabric be picked with water resistance? Thanks.
I feel like the odd man out. I was trying on some Clarks Desert Boots last week and found that I had to actually size up half a size. I have a wide foot and found my normal size to be uncomfortably tight. I don't see how so many need to size down. 
I would love the Admral's Peacoat originally teased a year ago. Black, navy, or grey.   The suede Harrington sounds interesting.
