Charles Tyrwhitt (CT) Boot Shoe Sizing

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Thinking about getting some Chukkas from CT. How do they run, sizewise?

Thanks.

I wear 12 D in most shoes. I ordered an 11 in the CT Suede Chukka. It is marked 10 1/2 / 11 and fits, so they run very large.

Agree. I normally wear an 8 1/2 C in US sizing and the CT boots that fit me best (after one round of returns due to the original order being just WAY to big) are marked 7 1/2 F. You might get lucky with your first order but, fortunately, CT has a good return policy and it's pretty easy to fine tune your order until you determine just which of their sizes fits you best.

I usually wear European 44 and was a little concerned when ordering their suede chukkas last summer in size UK 10, but there were no fit problems. A UK size down would have been easily too small.

Wow, so very tricky! I guess a size down or half a size? WN2 - Isn't a UK10, a size up from EUR 44?

I'd go down a full size.

I went with my normal size U.S. 9.5D and there just a tag too big but not that big. I have a U.S. size 9D comming and will probably be returing the 9.5's. So I would say go down 1/2 Size and not a full size.

I have conflicting information now! I guess I'll just take my chances and exchange it if it doesn't work out. Just curious, do certain types of shoes fit differently, just by the nature of their design and/or how they are intended to be worn. Just from reading, it seems you should always size down for Chukkas. You'd think over time, the manufacturers would just adjust the sizing. Unless they are trying to imply that (chukka) boots should be worn loosely?

Well, CT's size generally run really big (or at least did last year - there has been some discussion of them perhaps changing manufacturers, which may or may not change this). This is regardless of style. My CT suedes are the only chukkas I only, so I can't comment whether there's something inherent in chukka's that makes sizing tricky.

I have experience sizing up 1 full size UK to US (10 UK to 11US)
and sizing up only 1/2 size.

The 1 full size up had the shoe quite tight for the first few wearings. It stretched and now it is perfect.

The sizing up 1/2 size had the shoe perfect at first, but too loose after a few wearings.

Which you choose depends on how you like your shoes to fit.

My typical size is an 11D/E US.

The trouble is that the shoes are made in UK sizes and the US sizes listed on their website are CONVERTED sizes. The problem is that they are incorrectly converted sizes. What everyone is saying is that the correct conversion of US to UK sizes is to substact one. This website does this for you:

CT uses an incorrect conversion scale like this one which tells you to drop down just 1/2 size:

If you follow this, like CT recommends, then you end up with a shoe a 1/2 size too big.

Oops, I just checked my boots and they are in fact UK 9½, not UK 10. Sorry about that, please disregard my earlier advice.

ctshirts.com/pine still works for me


while on the subject of CT boots -> anyone know who the manufacturer of their jodphur boot is? I recieved mine (after returning a pair which was 1/2 a size too big due to their botched sizing) last week and they are great.
Tight in the instep area since no shoes fit me right due to my very high instep, but great leather, esp the color of it.

So you are saying the US sizes listed on the CT website is converted wrong, to the magnitude of being 1/2 size too large? So even if it has my size US 9, I should order 8.5?
