I ordered a pair of EG Westminsters from EoM last Spring and they arrived by DHL with no fees. I'm hoping the C&J Tetburys they just shipped also escape fees (incidentally, I ordered on Sunday and the boots shipped on Monday).
Well, it pretty clearly says "98", so this is new to me.
It probably says "48" and L, meaning 48 Long. "48" is the distance across the chest, in centimeters. To convert to US measurements, double to get the circumference in centimeters and divide by 2.54 to convert centimeters to inches. So a European 48 corresponds to a US 37.8, or approximately a US 38. The quick, approximate conversion is to subtract 10 from the European sizing to get US sizing, but this doesn't work well for larger sizes (for example, a Euro 56 is...
I use Obenauf's LP on all my shoes (and belts) before the first wearing, except for suede or shoes that I don't want to darken. Obenauf's will darken brown or burgundy leather.

The very first time I caught a b-ball game on TV, this guy with a giant 'fro blocked a shot, palming it as he took it down. He threw an outlet pass and was fast enough to take a one-handed rebound for a jam at the other end. Yes, it was Dr. J. He was MJ before anyone had heard of...
I visited when I lived in SD in 2006 and wasn't impressed. The best tailor in town is Romeo Singca at Felice Custom Tailoring in La Jolla. I haven't visited in several years, but I assume he's still in business.

Before voting I need clarification: Do the spots glow in the dark?(I own a pair of purple shoes, but they're captoe balmorals and so dark that they look burgundy, so they really wouldn't be competitive with the entries I've seen here. Well done, gents!)
