Yes, but that's the UK size written in the shoe. The usual conversion would make them size 11D US, which is how I intended the size to be understood. One small point: with EG, these might be somewhere between 10.5D and 11D, although 11 would be the usual UK to US conversion.

Indeed, but EG's own conversion would be 10.5E, and if you are familiar with EG, you would know your EG size.

I've been browsing the Lands' End sale stuff tonight, and noticed that the "Made in England" shoes are on markdown to $199. They're made by Alfred Sargent, I believe, and are Goodyear welted. One is a two-eyelet blucher in British tan that looks pretty sharp in the pic:

The other is a suede desert boot that looks a bit similar to Brooks' offering, only $25 cheaper than Brooks' sale price.

LE has had its English-made shoes for a few years now, so I don't know if this is a particularly good deal on them. But it seems like a good deal on AS in general, if the quality is up to snuff.

My thoughts exactly. Judging by the text inside the shoes these are several years old.

On the basis of the four pairs of EG shoes I have, I would say that when EG marks their shoes size 10, this translates into something a little larger than 10.5US, although perhaps not quite all the way to an 11 (which would be true for C&J, Lobb, and others). As for width, this issue has been debated before on this forum, and in my experience, an E-fitting as marked by EG does not convert to an E-width US. With most UK shoe manufacturers, a UK E converts to a US D, and that has been my experience with EG as well (except that I take a UK C, which closely matches a US B). Some people feel that an EG E is closer to a US E than to a US D, but others disagree. In my opinion--and based on all of these factors--I would represent an EG 10E as closest to an 11 D US. QED.

Yeah, but my point isn't that EG runs big, or any of your points above (I happen to disagree on all your points). I don't find your converted sizes to be helpful - I find actual sizes to be much helpful. In fact, since most people are aware of the EG conversion system, and know their size based on that, saying 11D gives the impression that they're either 10.5/11D's or 11/11.5D's. When in fact they were marked something else.

My point is that if you wear EG, you know your EG size. The better way to do this is to simply report the EG size, so you don't mislead people, and then if you want to give additional information, say "I think this would convert to an 11D". QED.

Condition:
New Unworn - Defective
Defect:
Left is a 7.5, right is an 8

I'm surprised 11 different people bid. Then again, a lot of people don't read auctions before bidding, so maybe not that surprised.

I'm more surprised because I really don't like the colour!

John Lobb William, size 8.5E

My friend found these at a garage sale in Hollywood and just put them up on ebay. I told him that his pictures aren't very good. These are actually in pretty good used condition, though I'm not sure the original owner used trees.
