I have both... you would be hard pressed to be disappointed with either, as long as the fit is right.

Didn't buy any, but now I know my size.

     Note the particularly beautiful marbled shoe. Coffee and chocolate on a bed of golden butter and bronze. These are absolutely spectacular!

 

Fit? Well, they feel like all the angels in heaven were sent down to massage your feet all day.

I know they are affiliate SF vendors and I should not say anything bad about them here, but hey, I need to say it like it is, trust me, EG and G&G don't come anywhere even close to SC, not even by a very, very, long, long mile.

 

At this quality I would be happy to pay St Crispins double the price which the average boring old "yesterday's hero" EG charges for their very average quality with their ill fitting shoe trees, or the over rated GG shoes, but, at similar prices? it is just a no brainer? These SC's are mega bargains, I cannot think of better bang for my buck.

 

 

Also, buying SC is a much easier and smoother transaction than any of the annoying experiences I always have with the English MTO and RTW brands.

 

My only gripe is that SC used to supply boot trees and I am experiencing a little trouble finding boot trees for this pair of 401's

These are one sweet looking pair of boots.

These are gorgeous as well.

I have a pair of these lightly used in UK Size 10.5/US Size 11.5 that I am looking to unload if anybody has any interest. I have a pair of full brogues in the classic last and given my wide foot the classic last fits me a bit better then the chisled last which is what I have in this model.
post #309 of 2180
how does the chiseled last fits?
post #310 of 2180
The chisled last actually fits pretty well. The issue I have is that my foot is a bit wide and so my right pinkie toe is pushed up against the side and so it becomes a bit uncomfortable for me. If someone had a normal width foot the shoe would fit great. The left foot actually fits me well and the shoes are sleek as hell. If I would have gone MTO with Saint Crispin on this pair I would have asked them to widen the toe box slightly on the right foot and all would be well.

Here is a pic of how the shoes look from up top.

damn man, im interested but im fairly certain theyll be 1/2 size too small. tts 12 here
post #312 of 2180
I would agree, for a US Size 12 these would be small especially given the chisled last. To bad.
