So confused with sizing. I thought I had it worked out until I visited Carmina site.
Why is it that Epaulet and Gentlemensfootwear have the US to UK equivalent size as 1 size down, ie. a UK8.5 = US9.5 but when you go to the Carmina site and look at their size chart it's .5 size down, ie. a UK9=US9.5?
I'm thinking about ordering the navy string tie loafer in whatever size would be closest to a US9.5 but now I don't know whether to go w/ the UK8.5 or UK9.
I wear an Alden US9 Barrie, US9.5 Hampton.
Any help is appreciated.
Is your foot wider or narrower? My feet are on the narrow side of medium: my left foot is size 9.25C and my right foot is size 9.5D on the Brannock scale. I wear size UK8.5 in every Carmina last I have tried. The narrower lasts fit me better than the wider ones. Keep in mind that a loafer last will be narrower because there are no laces to tighten the shoe over the foot.
