I believe EU38.5 equals UK 5.5, but some would say EU38.5 equals UK4.5, at present I am:
Measured as UK5.5D on a C&J measure board by shoe sales staff;
5.5 E in Edward Green 82 last (short boot, nice fit),
5 F IN Saint Crispin's classic last (oxford, snug fit)
5.5 F in Loake capital last (double monk, generous fit with a thin layer of insoles, guess my best fit is size 5F)
38.5 in Vass U last (oxford, snug fit)
4.5/5F in Santoni (oxford fits good, heel slippery in loafer, plz note Santoni is Italian sizing)
5.5EE/EEE in Ferragamo tramezza (wholecut, snug fit, 6EEE in derbys are too big for me).
Gaziano & Girling MH71 last in size 6, heel slippery(monk shoe)
Carmina forest last size 5, heel slippery (but already squeezing my fore foot, guess forest last will not fit me, btw, it's still for grabs)
It's about time I updated my fit summary, please be aware that my feet is quite unusual in sizing (small combined with skinny, I think, rather small heel and low insteps, I may never get a loafer that fits me, unless I go bespoke), so my fitting can hardly represent the majority.
For example: I know a guy with the same foot length yet had no problem with John Lobb size 6!
