Shit, this isn't the J Crew thread?

no first hand experience, but i am thinking about buying either the sharp or the fred and asked a little about sizing up a little in this thread.

also, consensus on the board is that it's a full size down:

can you get measurements of the size you want from an online site? pediwear was good about this.

I saw that earlier thread but I'd assumed it was referring to the standard US size = UK size+1 formula, with all the talk of 11F UK = 12D US. I'm talking about not just converting my US size to UK, but then sizing down a full size from that.

I'll flip pediwear an email and ask.

Pediwear was really good about emailing me measurements. Definitely give that a shot!

Grenson fred are true to size, very similar to other uk shoes.

I think the biggest problem is figuring out what true to size is (for me, anyway). Every search yields a different answer--some say UK is a half size smaller, others a full size (is a us ll a uk 10.5 or 10?)

Wish I could try them on--anyone know of any Los Angeles shops that carry grenson?

Sizing UK to US is a pain in the ass, mainly because there's no place to try em on. I'm a 10.5 US and can generally do a 10 UK with inserts, or 9.5 straight up. But 9.5 seems to be an uncommon size across the pond. I have two pairs in 10 UK (loakes and grenson) that are fine with inserts for a 10.5 US. Then there is variation based on the specific shoe or boot model.

Just got these through from T Jackson of Mirfield, West Yorkshire, as sold through their eBay shop. Though branded with their name, they're clearly the Sanders & Sanders Cheltenham and even bear the same model number stamped inside. However, they retail at £140.00, compared to a more typical price of £175.00 for the Cheltenham. A great, sturdy boot. I love it and am very happy with it (though it only arrived this morning, so I haven't actually road tested it as such). Black may not be to everyone's taste in a brogue, and obviously the subtleties in the shading that you get with brown boots are lost, but I can live with that.
