Sorry for the delay. The outsole measurements for the Brooks English are 11 7/8" x 4 1/8".
It's hard to say, as they are three different sizes from three different makers. However, I don't think the Sanders would fit, especially if you a true size 11. The Brooks should be closer, as should be the AE patent leather shoes.

It's been so many years since I read that book that I forgot about the reference. Now I really feel like a big-timer!
It would be interesting to go back and find out what else Sherman McCoy wore/carried, etc. to see how many are SF favorites. Or has someone already done that?
Finally got around to taking a few pictures of two of my favorite briefcases, albeit with my phone. Both are lid-over-body cases.
The first is an SAB for Peal/BB.
The other is by MÃ¤dler, a Swiss company that used to have a store on 57th St. I'm not sure if they're still around.
New BB patent pumps. Size 10.5D. Bidding starts at $.99. (Described as "Fancy Dress Shoes" -- I suppose that's a fair description -- but not too fancy for me!)

Very very comfortable
I have an older pair of the same Polo shoes, and they fit me true to size. I agree that they're very comfortable shoes.
