I wear 7.5D Barrie, 7.5E Aberdeen and Vass, 8D on the Brannock (actually, between D and E). I've purchased two Heschungs: the Tyroleans co-labelled with Yuketen; and some Ateliers Heschung suede Algonquin's with white work soles. The Tyroleans fit exactly like barries (size down 1/2 from your Brannock). The Ateliers Heschung Alonguqin's were really long and a little narrow--even sized down 1/2 they were still 1/2 size too long. So quite a different fit from the...
BTW, the new Nettleton site seems pretty dubious. I'm not sure what 3 generations of Tuscan stonemasons bring to traditional footwear manufacture. And while all the old photos are great, would love to see what they're making now. I've seen some pretty mediocre stuff from when they were making stuff overseas over the last few decades. Let's hope they actually bring back some of that old-time Nettleton quality and style.
They weren't faked. Seller claimed they were Nettletons, insoles were not readable on his photos. Turned out to be vintage but low-grade wingtips (British Walkers)
many thanks. the plaid one will fit, the blue one is a little big. let me measure someother shirts to see if I can take them both. stephen
Brooks Brothers will tell you that you can't on cotton, and having tried it, I'd tell you that in addition to the mark it leaves, there's damn little fabric in there to let out.
As a long time FP user, I wouldn't recommend either of those for FP ink. I believe those are solutions for ball point ink. Roller ball ink will react more like FP ink than ball point. For FP ink stains, Amodex is a professional ink removing liquid sold by many pen shops. Ammonium will dissolve many inks but you should daub a diluted solution on with a q-tip, testing other parts of your shirt for color fastness. Rinse thoroughly afterward. Some really old stains can...

Listed as sold out on the website. I have the brown ones and beware, in person they are much redder--more typical chromexcel. Not quite 80's Timberland lug boots but not as rich/deep as the pictures. You can darken them up with Obenauf's...

Silk knots are classic, trad, elegant. Cufflinks can be great too but these are great for travel, and when you want a little understatement. Cheap and nasty are most of the gold or chrome plated, plastic stone cheap cufflinks I see most guys wearing with their French cuffs. I have vintage gold and sterling links but I still wear the knots sometimes--got married in a pair last year. Just be careful with ebay sellers from China--might be made in the same factory as BB,...
