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. Should you opt for a shoe from our Handgrade range a full size down (11E) is recommended. He also...

That doesn't make sense to me.

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.

A Brooks Brothers rep (Maria in men's shoes) at their 346 Madison Ave. store (212-682-8800) just told me that they still have the Peal version of the Coniston in pebbled grain tan calf and smooth black calf on sale in various sizes for $199. You can see photos of the two versions at this thread. Shipping cost is $9 and taxes are 6%, I think.
