You win the shoe game. Check the racks more often. English benchmade so yea it's UK size. Usually Crockett & Jones does Polo but that's definitely not a nail pattern I recognize. Well done.

@Jompso sorry to hear about the medical stuff, hope you stay well and take care of yourself. also, i don't think there's a human being on earth whose sleep schedule could make spoo look lazy. just for the record. not to take anything away from you because the hustle is real. also homie, if those brioni trous are FF and around 35-36, holler at your boy.

Oh I know I was just using the metaphor to make a point. I've tried it and it baffles me how one can function throughout the day like that....and sorry the FF Super 150s navy blues are a custom job and measure about 33 across and the browns aren't FF and are 38...thank you for the kind words, they are appreciated.

Pardon my ignorance, who typically makes (or made) Polo Ralph Lauren Made in Italy dress shoes?

If they are UK size, they aren't for me. I wear 9.5US.

Pretty sure all polo shoes are marked with US sizing

Yeah, I'm stumped. I thought Royals or Missions too but the M is slightly different on mine.

It really depends, as far as dress shoes are concerned I was under the impression they were pretty much solely English so the maker would depend on the nail pattern of the heels unless someone here is privy to a certain firm they have been known to contract Italian made models to.

If C&J they'd be marked with a UK size and then maybe US as well, really depends where they were made...it looks English so I'm gonna go ahead and guess it'll be stamped English but hey I've been wrong before so anyones guess...or knowledge..

Me, today: found hella recent Isaia orphan at a little charity thriftsignment store, navy with a pink bead stripe. Look all over for the pants, no dice. Go up to the counter.

"Any chance there might be pants to match this in the back?"

"No, everything is out."

(I've looked in the back and seen tons more stuff that hasn't been put out yet.)

"Oh, well, this is a suit fabric, so there definitely were pants at some point." (Hoping he might let me look around.)

"Sorry. We don't carry suits."

(Not sure what to make of that, I wander around the store a little more)

"So, I guess I'll take the jacket and come back later to see if the pants show up..."

"They won't. We don't carry suits."

"So...when you do get suits donated, what do you do with them?"

"We give them to our clients. [huh?] It was too much hassle to carry suits. Too hard to make sure the pants waist and inseam and the jacket and sleeves and everything all fit right."

Me: -__-

@Jompso  take care of yourself. You can't make money when you're done and this shit gets way harder to handle the further along you get.
