    I went to Enricos yesterday and I'm definitely a 10 width. They could have been a little long though, so part of me wants to try a 9.5 and find out. I would have asked to try it yesterday but I'd already tried 2-3 pairs on which I wasn't going to buy and felt guilty.

    I've gone from an 11 in rubbish sneakers to 10.5 RMW and I really can't tell anymore. Is there any way of having my foot properly measured?

    Spent a little while polishing shoes today cos I wasn't at work. I was pretty chuffed with this effort.

    Using a Brannock device is considered TTS but for most people their shoe size usually differs from this.
    Also thanks Jas hope you enjoy your turtleneck.... :p
    Nice shine TBM; had some shine time during the long weekend as daughter was a bit sick but I only ended up getting a shine on one shoe so I have to do the other some time.

    Honestly, shoe sizing is a frustrating dark art. IMHO, there is no consistency across the brands.

    I have however found that the shoes that fit best are a consistent length, in my case 30.0cm, which should be no great surprise of course, but this length varies between 7, 7.5 and 8UK, depending on the maker.

    My advice is measure the length/width of your best fitting shoes to find a consistent average, and order accordingly after consulting the maker.

    Good luck.

    I have a pair of RM Williams Craftsman in 10.5 wide and a pair of Loake Buckingham in 10.5 (from Herring).

    With thin socks I'm happy with the fit of the Buckinghams although there is a good half inch or so in the toe. With thin socks I find some innersoles fill out the RM Craftsman fine - could probably do with a 10.5 standard width for a perfect fit.

    I found the Loakes much, much harder in the heels and sole than the Craftsman. Took me multiple wears to start to feel comfortable and still find the heels hard. Would probably not buy Loakes again although I really do like the styling and overall quality.

    Hope that helps with sizing. I know I was worried about the return costs.

    The pop-over fits as thought I had it custom made. You cannot comprehend how ecstatic I am to have found something OTR that fits me so perfectly.

    Do you have a white one in S, too?

    Sadly the sizing did not work out for me, but what a beautiful product...recommended (if you are lucky to be the right shape for these).
