I'm just getting that feeling. Sorry if I got your hopes up, I don't have any real info...

Nothing coming today. Rota and Inglese FW16 pre-orders will be posted Tuesday towards the end of day.

We will also have some S/S drops

Hmmm, so this inconsistent with Greg's advice as well - either way it sounds like the 9.5 I ordered is way too small for a TTS 10.5. Greg, sent you an email. Thanks!

US10.5 = UK9.5 for Barbanera lace ups, UK9 for loafers, is how I understood it all based on Greg's input. Antonio just confirmed that the lace ups are TTS to their UK(!) sizing. So, not quite getting your confusion there. wink.gif

I think it was only inconsistent if you didn't realize he was saying to order 1 full size down from your normal US size, not your normal UK size.

A few people, myself included, had posted specific UK sizes we take in other makers and the replies more or less said to order this size.

That's correct. For the loafers, worn with no or very thin no-show socks, one should size down another 1/2 for a better fit.

Of course, this is SF and I'm assuming that by now, we all know that we have different feet, fit differently in different lasts, and that there is no universal sizing truth for shoes. Our best guideline is to take your UK size for all the shoes and UK - 0.5 for loafers.

bummed I missed out on the brown/green Gatsbys in my size! They look stellar and more versatile than expected.

What is the general sizing guidance for the NMWA Eidos cut vs. Formosa cut? Do people generally wear the same size in both? 

 

Thanks so much! 

post #30384 of 36520
@kwv07 General rule is to size down one for Formosa. E.g. if you're a 52 in Eidos, you'd be a 50 in Formosa.

I have been scared of MTOing Formosa because of the shoulders. I'm sure this has been answered a million times before but can they do size 34 or is the lowest you can MTO size 36S?

This sounds correct to me, too. Most 50R Formosa measurements I've seen have a 19" shoulder whereas your more typical 50R jacket has a 18" shoulder on average.

Just to add another Eidos/Formosa data point: Eidos in size EU50 fits me pretty well off the rack. Formosa in size EU50 is a little too big, size EU48 is a little too small. I would probably be size EU49 if such a thing existed. Fortunately for my wallet, it doesn't.

Something something that's what credit cards are for, something something bespoke trunk shows in DC.

That is the case for most people. I'm 52L in Formosa and 54L in Eidos, for example

Yes, we get a good number of MTO or even pre-orders in size 44 (R or S). Where are you located though? It would probably be best to try 46 first

We address emails in the order received, unless the answer is quick and easy and doesn't require measurements, etc... As you can imagine, the volume of emails is high during sales
