    Is it possible that Guidi 988 sz 47 can fit 44 size? Just found a pair at a low price and seller says they fit 44 size.

    I'm a 45 in Carpe and Layer 0, 11.5 US D Width, 10.5 UK, 45 CP and my Guidi size is 46.5 (for perfect fit, I wear 46/47 though)

    If you don't want can you PM me the ad?

    Thanks

    Thanks Tellure.. believe it or not, the jeans are wings + horns. I found them at american rag for $60 and they were 2 sizes too big so I had a tailor fix the top and they now sort of fit like the rick astaire trousers. kind of drop crotchy that taper down and stack. They're identical to the dior black slender stretch denim except the darting is in rather than out.

    Since I've been having such bad luck moving up to a "baller" pair of boots I finally just caved and ordered a pair of F+B's in a dark grey nubuck. Won't post 'em here since they don't make the price cutoff though :).

    I've also been trying to find a pair of laid-back but high quality shoes that I can wear with jeans, cords, etc. Something half way between a sneaker and a shoe. These look kinda cool IMO. Anyone heard of the brand "Sak" before?

    /\ NO.

    I don't see how a 5% non-refundable fee for removing VAT is justified. They call it 'Tax-free administration fee' ?!?

    So now the online customers are idiots, who will get gouged the 5% fee? Wow.
    Stores like this don't deserve any business.

    Yeah it does seem funny, although they explained that fee as a GB taxFree (i.e a gvmt tax of some sort) ..

    dont do vertice, friend of mine had an awful experience with them, definitely do either hide-m (holger) or pn/p (luigi) they are great guys and wont add any random fees

    Vertice was not bad, gave good sizing recc, helped me get the package out of a customs black hole too. Only problem is they don't reduce the marked value so I got hit by customs. I know Moo had issues, but knowing him he probably isn't the easiest guy to work with.

    My IS by Individual Sentiments boots finally showed up (thank you, Holger/Hide-M); I ordered the wrong size. These are sz40 & I need the 41 : ( . Any US 7/7.5 get at me for a deal of a lifetime. :nodding:

    Construction is amazing, leather treatment is epic. Leather is sourced from Guidi I believe. Cousin to the famous Cdiem S52M workboot
