@TweedyProf Some of bengal's posts might be of interest to you, although they prob won't help with Barneys' C&J sizing : [[SPOILER]]
That and manufacturing tolerances, i.e. the outsole might have been trimmed closer to the upper on one pair of shoes compared to another same size/style pair. Hell, I'm sure there are variations between left/right shoe in the same pair.
@TweedyProf : outsole measures 30.8cm heel to toe with a tailor tape = 12 1/8''.
Sure, but it'll have to wait till tomorrow.As an aside, while many go by EG's 1/2 size UK/US conversion, i.e. EG labelled 8.5/9E shoes for US9D feet, that doesn't work for me. I take 8/8.5E in EG 888 and 82 lasts. I did own a pair of 8.5/9D 888 shoes and sold them bc they were painfully narrow.Fwiw, I once asked Hillary Freeman why EG only converts 1/2 size UK/US and she said that the British generally wear closer fitting shoes compared to Murricans who prefer them on...

Regarding the recent dark DOAK discussion, I believe someone mentioned sun bleaching.You can definitely lighten shoes several shades by leaving them out in direct sunlight. I did so with a pair of Dark Tan Alden LWB, left outside last summer every time weather would permit. Proof is in the picture: [[SPOILER]] You can see the original color on either side of the tongue, areas that were shielded from the sun by the facings. Of course, you won't see much difference on a...
SARB033 with enough change left for a strap and springbar tool.
IMPORTANT FAQS: Q: 'ZOMG these are awesome, WANT WANT WANT, are they still available?!?! A: If the listing is open, they're still available.

A: I don’t make a penny of profit on anything I sell here. Rather, I just try to recoup some of my costs. I believe my prices are fair and...
@Skolyx and @patinePL : You guys should add a Yanko last shape comparison chart. Something like this or this would be helpful. @Skolyx: Can you add Canada to the list of coutries in your drop down field in the checkout?
