I would say US D (X) = UK F (X-1) as a general rule. This has mostly worked for me.

Guys- with all due respect, to just say "size 1 down" without any context is not going to help the OP. For me, this advice would have not worked.

I wear a 9.5D US. I find the 348 *extremely* narrow--the 8.5E is unbearably tight. I find the 9E comfortable--so I size down by half. BUT, I find a 9.5D US to be just right--a good snug fit--not loose at all. So YMMV.

As a newer participant, I can say that the WAYWRN thread is occasionally diverting... SF-group think aside, I see that there is a spectrum of revered looks: Olddog-----------Holdfast----------MoK--------Gnatty---------NiiDawg-------Foo/Vox-------Cravate-------PG (Super full cut)---------------------------------------(slim cut)----------------------------------------(ultra tailored) (and of course the many other great posters that pepper the line). Hence it is not all...
How about getting EG or G&G etc. to do a special StyleForum shoe with a creative SF brogued in the toe (a la Barker Black's skull & crossbones)? Very discreet, and would be a very nice shoe.
I'm a US 9.5D and I take an 8.5F in the 73 last. Fits perfectly. Not wide at all. YMMV
FWIW- I wear a US9.5D and take a UK9E in the Lowndes. NOTE: the 9.5E wash HUGE. So given what you're saying, I'd go with half a size down. For english shoes, I usually go a full size down from my US size, but as you point out, the 348 last is very narrow, so I went down just half a size and it is more than ample for me.
^^ I'm surprised they suggested the 9.5 for the 358, considering you wear a 9 in the 348 and still need to "crank the straps". I feel the 358 fits exactly like the 348. My experience is the opposite of yours, though. I wear a US 9.5D and find the 8.5E in the 348 excruciatingly tight. I wear a 9E comfortably in the 348/358.
