    @FrankCowperwood I have a pair of OS trousers at the tailor and I think the reason I finally caught on to them is because I always see how well you wear OS. That jacket looks great, if I remember right it's tweed right?

    Thanks. Yes, this is the multi-tweed from last year. I haven't really ventured outside of OS jackets, but there are some nice looking shirts and the trousers do look pretty good too. Post your trouser when they are ready and maybe that will inspire me...

    Edit: I think you need to take that SdC rabbit parka to California. You don't want to disappoint Snoop.


    Shoe sizing, :p, eh?

    I'm a 9.5 US and wear a 42.5, so we correspond.

    My shoe sizing doesn't seem to correspond with much, though it's a last internally consistent.

    And there happens to have one in stock in 45... I guess I can always wear an extra layer of socks if its too big right? :p

    Sure. NMWA sells those too... :)

    But maybe wait to see what Greg advises. He has a very good handle on these things and I'm sure he'll get back to you.

    @Tsung

    A 45 in the F last is a good fit for me. But I am a solid 11.5 Brannock and appear to be a half size larger than you. I am not planning on buying those shoes, so I am not running a misdirection play.

    As another data point -- I am a solid US9. I have the Vass Norweger in a 42 at home. While they fit well enough, I suspect there may be a little extra room yielding a better fit with a 41.5. Unfortunately, those are currently sold out at NMWA, so I await a timely return for an exchange :)

    Thanks for all the info guys. I really like the Norweger from the numerous pictures I have seen being posted on this thread. But will probably have to decide to buy something else/save the money if 44 or 44.5 is not available (Unless Greg or Kyle emails me before the shipping deadline tomorrow and tell me they do have one in stock).

    Definitely will try to get some more OS in my fits. I imagine going to California in the rabbit parka would be something like this...

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    I am a solid 11D as well. If you got med width feet, I would advise on the 44 in F last. Even 44.5 would be too big.

    I echo this completely. 11D brannock and a comfortable 44 on the F last.
