Have you guys found that White's semi dress fit TTS or are you sizing down?
post #547 of 4558

i have found that they fit true to the measured brannock size.  Meaning, I measure at a 10, so I buy 10.5 shoes.  With Whites, I got a 10 and its a perfect fit.  If in doubt, trace your foot and send them to Bakers or Whites.

I am a 7C on the brannock. I got measured at 7B by baker`s. Here is my take on it:
This is per White`s website-
Quote:
Remember, due to the all-leather construction, White's Boots will shorten in length and widen as worn.
By the time the creases set in, the length ever so slightly gets affected and the width will conform better to your feet as the leather stretches. Now had I sized down, I would have had even lesser room after the creases. I confirmed this with White`s as far as length goes and the width from Baker`s. So from my experience and take this is a grain of salt as it is YMMV, go a width down and stay with your brannock heel-to-toe length (or heel-to-ball, whichever is larger of the two readings).

But then again, the brannock only measures in 2d so definitely YMMV.
I have also owned a pair in my actual size and one 1/2 size down. They were both comfortable but I trust the measurements Baker`s got for me.

I have also read a lot of different takes on sizing from poohbang (thehooligan? from sufu) and the common consensus is 1/2 down. There were some who sent their measurements and felt like they were off.

I don`t get this. You measure at 10 so why don`t you buy size 10 shoes? Is your foot past the 10 line on the device?

in my own experience, SmokeJumper = TTS & SemiDress = size down 1/2.

my foot is right at the 10 mark, so if I go got a 10, it would be too small.
