[IMG][/IMG] I realize I wasn't clear in my first post. The shoes are too big for me so I am not going to buy them. They are available for anyone who wears a 12D in the Barrie last; The Shoe Mart model number is FD-97572. I am unsure whether they...

Not looking to stir up a hornet's nest here but I e-mailed Mr. Huqstable this morning and just received his answer. I asked him to clarify whether my 12D RL Darltons were a UK11 or UK11.5. Here is the relevant part of his reply: We do indeed make the Darlton bluchers, for Ralph Lauren in dark congnac shell cordovan. A US size 12 D is a UK size 11.5E in the last 325.

I am generally a 12D, but I have a high instep. The heel and toe box of the 11.5D was fine, but the volume of midfoot of the shoe was not sufficient to accommodate my high instep; the shoe was very, very tight. The 12D fits great. So, for me, the fit is TTS.
