I measure a 10 1/2C and always had trouble finding shoes (especially loafers) that fit. Â (This state of affairs also explains why I mostly wear AE (own the Mapleton) and Alden, even for casual shoes as some are available in my size or that I can special order.) Â As Alden seems a bit staid (although they are great shoes and the chukka boots I own are certainly not staid), I've been looking for shoes of the same quality but in more "stylish" makes, even if I have to special order a size and wait four months. Â (I've been thinking about Norwegian-front bluchers for some time.) Â Unfortunately, most European-made shoes seem to only come in medium or wide. Â (I may be able to get away with a medium on some lasts.) I'm aware that Edward Green has a MTM program. Â Any other suggestions for RTW? Â Full bespoke is just out of my price range. While we're on the topic, does anyone here have a link to anthropometric data on feet sizes? Â I'd be interested to find out if the Japanese and Europeans really have wider feet.
