    What size are you in other shoes? about to purchase but iffy as I vary across the shoe brand board.
    Quoddy - 9 (perfect) Vans - 9 (perfect) Keds (ya, lol) - 9, Perfect Clarks - 9 Alden: 8.5D Nike - 9 or 9.5. Depends on what I'm wearing them for. dress shoes: Santoni: 9US Ferragamo 8.5 Adam Derrick to boot NY: 8.5 I wrote a little thing to Bows on the prior page with more detail. after research and pulling the trigger i'm comfortable to recommend sizing down one full size from your normal shoe size. For example, I'm a US 9 (42) and ordered an 8 (41). A good idea is to get INSOLE measurements in centimeters then use a seamstress tape against your own foot. That's how I ultimately decided for the size 41.. INSOLE measurements on sizes 40-42 for CP achilles low: Size 40: 27 centimetres Size 41: 28 centimetres Size 42: 28,5 centimetres edit [​IMG]

    ^you got the size 2? what's the p2p on it?
    I don't know, haven't received it yet. Edit: Just measured my albam cardigan and it's 23" pit 2 pit, so my guess would be it's 22-23.

    Yeah man...I've got a few of their shoes. Took a major dive in recent years, quality wise, but at least the price has gone down in accordance..

    Woolrich Woolen Mills Woodsman Shirt in Heather Gray from MORTAR

    Technically advertised as a shirt but I have been wearing it as a shirt jacket - the fabric seems to thick to be worn by itself. It's an awesome piece though.

    Thanks for hooking me up, Iris! MORTAR is the bomb...

    Ha ha no not really, this is my second one, as I always hated them[​IMG]

    I like elbow patches on chunky knits, as they help avoid chunky knit grand canyon on your elbows.[​IMG]


    Thanks man, going to wait until you get solid measurements on this piece cardis and pullovers usually run different among the brands I know of.

    Great shoe. Have been looking for that or similar brown colorway in my size at sale price for a while.

    I'm sure you've looked, but what size are you? Habitatshoes has them in 12

    Unc, I really dig the scarf, suits you well. How is it that you're getting presents from boutique owners though? haha

    Too lazy to go get the Aldens that are downstairs. From the last week: Nudie Slim Jims (They better stretch soon because I sized down one and the waist is tight as of now), Thom Browne cardigan, Lanvins.
