This is great I appreciate it! I also sized down for 1035 and my AE 65 is also equivalent (fluctuates between D and E). Would you say sizing down in Rain was best or if you could do it again would you go tts? Thanks again


So I have a pair of suede chelseas on the rain last in 9.5UK, and a pair of black calf jodhpurs in 9.0UK.  The jodhpurs fit significantly better than the Chelseas, as I have to wear them with really thick socks otherwise my heels are slipping all over the place.  So sizing down was best for me, but I think it might be because my heels aren't particularly large (whereas my instep is).

 

At this point I'm pretty sure the Carmina lasts just don't work very well for me.  Enzo on the other hand fits fantastically.  I have a pair of suede jodhpurs, black shell longwings and suede wingtips on the 363MOD, a pair of spectators and black oxfords on the 804, and a pair of button boots on the 74945 and they all fit extremely well.  Perhaps the best fitting footwear I own, the only other pair that might give them a run for their money are my G&G Thorpes.

This all really helps, thanks! The 363MOD looks like it has a pretty generous instep judging from the pictures. I guess the best thing to do is to get both sizes in Rain and get a pair of the EB jumpers. I mean, I gotta find out my size eventually! Now i just need to decide on the color. I wish the burgundy was a bit darker. It looks very "ruby" like to me.

+1. I've got the same experience but with the 946.

Ah sorry man, we have not actually added anything to the US site, but we did adjust our G&G prices!

Welp, I guess there never was a better time to finally get a pair of Saint James IIs. :)

Anyone know what this knot is called, or the best way to tie string loafers?

I have these shoes too, and could not keep them tied. Then I found this website and problem solved: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/secureknot.htm

Excellent make up guys! I think we might do a re-run of these now that people can see how great they turned out.
