Slightly off-topic: Does anyone know who makes shoes for Barney's? I keep seeing them (at the Barney's outlet store and various consignment shops) and they appear well-made.

I've seen shoes made for Barney's at the C&J factory shop.

C&J does a "made for Barney's" line, but they don't make the house label shoes.

Saint Crispin's alert!!!!!!!!!! Ian has 7 new pairs in various sizes. I just picked up a pair. Lobbs, EGs I can usually resist. Saint Crispins, I can't. I have one pair already (bought a couple years ago from Ian on EBay) and they are amazing.

Tempted, but the sizes seem a bit long...do they fit true to size?

I have a St Crispin size conversion chart but can't seem to upload it to Photobucket.

But they use UK sizes with the following width designations:

E1/2=narrow to standard
F1/2=medium
G1/2=wide, and his conversion chart relists
E1/2=widest. so there is some question even in the chart I got from them as E1/2 can't really be both narrow and widest.

However Ian is listing US sizes and I am not certain what conversion factors he has used.

(I'm correct, right?)

For the one pair of Saint Crispin's I have, the US size is written on the shoe box. Appears to have been written there by Saint Crispin's too. It is that size that Ian goes by. Based on my one prior experience, that size is reliable.

Interesting. They must have marked that for a retail outlet in the US. Here is what Mr Rollig thinks (he owns St Crispin).

Quote:
Note: PRET shoes come in English sizes from 5 - 12 ½ and 4 different fittings (widths):

E½, F½, G½, H½.

Neither English sizes nor our continental fittings are directly comparable to American sizes and fittings. Please find enclosed an approximate conversion table.

This does imply that they sell in both Continental and English sizes. I suppose that the response I got was because I enquired in English.

I am considering their Model 105 which is a modern rendition of an Oxford Brogue. BTW, he quotes current prices as 690 Euros, which makes Ian prices very competitive.
