    If I'm normally a 43EU/9UK, sometimes 42.5EU/8.5UK, slim foot, low instep, what would be my correct size for the Heschung boots (both, suede and anicalf)? 9.5 or 9.0?

    Thanks! Much appreciated.

    Really a full size down and thereby US equal UK number? Wow.

    Just to make sure (and avoid disappointment) I'm a UK9 for Carmina Forest and EG 888 (inverness).
    Still US9 in Heschung (malko)?

    Reason why I'm asking is also the AS boot sizing info with the UK9 being equal to a Heschung 10.5US.
    And that's just weird despite the narrow toebox of the AS.

    I would normally say 1/2 down from your normal US size but since you mention your narrow foot and sometimes wearing UK 8.5, I'm thinking that you could go 1 down - see some comments in the last few days to that effect (Betelgeuse, I think?)

    I'm a uk10E in EG888 and US10.5 is a good fit for me with the Malko

    Thanks a lot, Greg. It must be late or very early at your end?

    The UK fits I quoted are in E, could be a tiny bit narrower but dealt with by insoles.

    Some last Qs.
    Even in US9, would the Malko still have enough length for the toes? I can't stand if they are squashed.
    I assume the leather won't stretch?
    And on US9 what would the French size stamp inside say, 8.5 I assume?

    Once this is cleared I would need your kind help with the actual order, please.
    (am in SE Asia but have a kind gent well known to you as proxy in US)

    In a way, and I might just be silly now, but I'll take two, one in each size (9.5 in oak, 9.0 in taupe). I'll try them and sell on the one that doesn't fit. Or use it in winter with much thicker socks or vice versa. :D

    Order placed with proxy delivery address as billing address with my name c/o proxy. Seems accepted.
    I'll pm you the order number to check. Hoping that's ok with you.

    Thanks a lot again.

    Casentino coat continues to get compliments from various people from all walks of life. Glad to have purchased this as well as a few Inis Meain sweaters. My casual winter wardrobe has improved by leaps and bounds. Many thanks to NMWA.

    Observation, seeing the lovely Cantarelli SCs I noticed this about their sizing on the example of a '52L', with a 43.3" chest it's just 30.3" long. I'm only 6'2 (chest 20", so 48/50R/L normally) but would need at least 31" to cover my a@@.

    Are these supposed to be this short or is it a possible listing mix-up?

    The listed measurements are correct on the Cantarelli. They're on the short side. My brother is your height and has the blue in 52L. I'd say it's on the short side of acceptable for a SC.

    Are Rotas true to size? Based on the measurements, I should be a 46 (or smaller), but sometimes the numbers don't tell the whole tale.

    The cotton twill version (what I have the size 48 in) run small IMO. I have a measured ~33in waist and the Rotas weren't close for me. It may be because I have a hockey players build and it throws the fit off, but I would certainly size up (Newcomer did for the cotton versus the wool Rotas). I would also size up because you can't really let out the pants despite having the fabric available. They are garment dyed in the finished state, so where ever you let out the seam, move a belt loop, etc, you will be left with a bone white color. This is why I'm trying to sell mine.

    FWIW as a comparison, I have a size 32 in the Big Johns slim taper and they are a bit loose in the waist and seat.

    Thank you for the info. My natural waist is around 30", and I always have trouble figuring out my waist for lower-rise trousers. Size 46 cotton twills have a waist of 31.5", which might be tight for me, so I should probably go for 48...which twills do you have? :)
