That might have changed to what you said but I'm pretty sure the Marlow in London were available in UK E (which does feel more forgiving in the toebox then "D" when that I tried in NYC), at least in 2009/2010? Also when GG first start making for RL I remember seeing it label with both US/UK sizing.

G&G and EG were sized in their usal way on the lining but us sized on the box.

Marlow line in UK /EU stores is 100% US E as standard
They made also EE but rarely seen

I own the Marlow penny in US 9,5 E and I can confirm you they are a UK 8,5 E/Ex
The width is almost identical to my Cavendish in UK 8,5 E, maybe only a wider heel

They are definitely more generous than D width.
(I've bought from USA the same penny in 9D in the past and it was very narrow compared, I can't even put my foot inside the shoes)

C&J US D is narrower than C&J UK E, so US E is almost comparable to UK E

would the following statement be correct then (for CJ)?

Length wise all marked on US size, width wise, what's marked "D" is in between a US C and a US D (which is in between UK D and UK E), and whats marked "E" is in between US D and US E (which is in between UK E and UK F).

For EG and GG internal still have both US and UK length and width wise it's UK width (i.e. a "D" would be UK D)?

I am looking at a cable knit cashmere sweater. Is black label more slim than purple label? What is the quality difference between the two? Is it substantial? $100 price difference between the two. I am unsure which one to go with.

Black label is quite slim.

I prefer slim but what about quality? The PL is made in Italy. I am guessing the BL cashmere is made in Italy as well. Would quality be similar to PL? If so I might as well go with BL.

Nothing special about rlbl cashmere. They are super thin and soft. First day it left whole heaps of residue on my white shirt. They are extremely slim. I mean it. You only buy rlbl because of the fit not because of quality. I'm super skinny and a small cashmere v neck fits like a glove- unlike any other brands. Good luck if you can pull off rlbl.

Thanks, I will go with Purple Label.

Anyone familiar with how RLBL suit cuts vary? I think the Anthony is pretty common but how do the Austin, Nigel, etc. compare?

Maybe they're just not made commonly enough to get critiqued?

I believe Austin has severely tapered pants among other features. Tried it on but the pants were way too tight. I like to run and pants were too slim. Anthony fits like a glove. Have two and love them. No idea on Nigel.

I think the Nigel fits like the anthony but the jackets are unlined.
