Albert Thurston braces commemorating the Metta Catharina. However, I'm not sure if these are made with Russia calf or not:

I saw these before you posted them, and still managed to win them. Less than excellent pictures and description may have played a part. Expect to see them in a week on the damage thread!

I have had a pair of Grensons from that seller before, you should be very happy, especially at that price!

For you classic American shoe buffs: shell cordo Florsheim longwings 9.5D:

Or how about these BB by Alden half-strap loafers in 10.5C. I'm betting these are the unlined BB version of the LHS. I have an identical pair:

And here we have Hanover again--plain-toe, storm-welted bluchers in 9D. What's with Hanover, guys? Were they good?

At the risk of seeming to beat this issue to death, let me add the following information. I should add that I didn't do this yesterday for fear that forumers would think that I was, in fact, beating this to death, but I decided this morning that the issue is important enough to try to get all the information out there.

A few weeks ago, I sent an e-mail to Edward Green inquiring about the sizing information stamped on the shoes they make for the RL Purple Label line. Here is one reply verbatim from the EG customer service person:

"Polo Ralph Lauren ask us to mark the Purple label shoes as a D fitting even though we make them on our E fitting last. So if you saw a Purple label shoe made by us marked as a 9 / 9 1/2 D, it would be a UK 9E. If you saw a Purple label shoe marked 9 / 9 1/2C it would be a UK 9D."

Yesterday, after these postings, I decided to ask the EG customer service person a slightly different question, which s/he at first misunderstood (thinking that I was still referring to the RLPL shoes). Here is my follow-up question:

"Thank you for this information. Actually my question was not aimed at the Ralph Lauren Purple Label shoes anymore; what I was asking was how to convert the UK fitting designation in an Edward Green shoe (not one rebranded by Ralph Lauren) to the US system. For example, if I saw an Edward Green shoe marked 9/ 9 1/2 E, would I assume that the E-fitting given was a UK one and understand the width to be equivalent to D in the US system?"

And this was the reply:

"Apologies. In one word: yes, that is correct."

This confirms exactly what I have observed in my four pairs of EGs relative to US-made shoes, as detailed in my previous posts.

It's really tricky with sole measurements, but the width would suggest about an 8 or an extremely narrow 9 or 10
