post #4876 of 6049

You are right.

 

I have sent an email.

Strange situation anyway. I am wondering if RL made mistake when they convert US size in UK Size. Some brands convert size brutally like just remove 1 from American size to English size wich is not true and depend of the original size (this is not linear).

 

My experience :

 

Alden Grant and Aberdeen : 8.5US

Alden Barrie : 8US

Trickers 4444 : 8UK

Pembroke (a try) : 7.5UK a little bit narrow 8UK a little bit large but more better).

Skye3 (try) : 7.5uk perfect.

 

 

I would be surprised that my Marlow in 325 would be a true 7UK.

Like Akeem said above, it's hard to know if RL sized down a full size or half size. Would be best to use your other C&J experiences as a reference. Based on your Pembroke experience, if i were you I'd probably go with 8 UK for the Lindrick. Would prefer a bit loose over too tight, especially for a shell boot, where A. the leather won't stretch too much, and B. the laced boot will keep your foot secure. Just my opinion.

Gentlemen,

 

As someone who has had to cross the uncertain waters of CJ for RL sizing paradigms, my experience has been tumultuous indeed.

 

The only sure way to know is to contact an experienced CJ staff member (Lauren) and ask advice first hand.

 

Of which, they will surely say that the commonly held advice for sizing the 325 last is 1 full size down from US.

 

Example:  US 11D=UK 10E

 

Now then, there are always certain variables of foot size that may dilute the above equation.  In which case, you may want to try on before purchase.  (Highly Recommended)

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks.

I would agree with Watchman that US11D = UK10E.

But I'll add that I was under the impression that the Marlows for Europe were wide width so US11E.
I have no actual experience with Euro market Marlows but I read it on the internet several times so it must be true.

And this would actually be consistent with Vincent's experience, since he is in Europe. That explains why his Marlows said 8E US.

I've tried marlow in both d and e width (and other close friend us EE too)

D width is surely narrower than uk e.
E width is very similar to uk e, maybe a touch wider.

My experience is one full size down too, ex. Us9/uk8

I'm in on 2 MTOs, the Wharlow & Lindrick. I'll be visiting NYC this weekend & will make a stop at the C&J store to 'dial in' my size (I have 3 C&J boots & a pair of Marlows, none of which have a perfect fit).

I'm in both as well, just wish I had a store near me to try them on!

3 words: Lauren, Lauren, Lauren!!! I really think she'll be a big help. I think she's out of the office until Thursday this week. Maybe try to call her and perhaps a quick conversation can yield you a size recommendation (instead of back and forth emails over the course of days).

We able to gather 12 even with the known issues of no faux captoe? I definitely should've joined the original run, ah well.

Will keep this up for a bit till end of month I think.

Anyone interested in a Zug Snowdon without the faux captoe? Or any 12?

Sorry to butt in on the 2nd Warlow run.

Hello Mosy,

 

Thanks for your advice. I tried new Coniston and Grasmere this weekend and I am between 7.5UK and 8UK. I have to make my choice because booth are ok.

Coniston 8 was very confortable once I put it but I am scared that with time it becomes loose. Im still thining about that...

Ok at least you narrowed it down. I would day, as some have said above, that too loose is better than too tight, since you can always wear thicker socks, especially during boot season. Also, being a boot, the laced up shaft with keep your foot in place. Regarding your concern about the shoe loosening up and becoming too big, it's true that with the foot bed settling there may be some minor loosening of the overall fit. However please keep in mind that shell does not stretch the way calf does. So there should be only minor loosening up.

Well, my experience with C&J Brecon (341 I suppose) was, that they were pretty tight at UK7, but became pretty comfortable after a while (but not to be worn with socks too thick).

UK7.5 on other C&J boots were comfortable immediately. So yes, there is room for stretching.

I'm also a member of the Warlow MTO.  I've contacted Lauren regarding sizing and she confirmed that the U.S. Ralph Lauren Marlows marked 10.5D translate to a 10E in the UK.  Of course some folks find the U.S. Ralph Lauren Marlows run big; but I do not.  Some of this also depends on the height of your instep, and how you like the laces to close.

My Lindricks came today. They're beautiful. inlove.gif

Not sure how the sizing worked out yet, but I think they'll be a good fit. Now hopefully the Warlow finishes up in the coming weeks!
