    X-post from the AS thread, which doesn't see as much action ... I'm looking at the AS captoes on sizing the 104 last and need some sizing help. I have narrow feet and low instep. For comparison:

    Carmina

    • Rain 9.5UK
    • Simpson 10UK
    • Robert 9.5UK

    G&G TG73 10UK

    EG 888 10UK

    I'm not sure whether 9.5 or 10 would be better. Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with the Carmina lasts or G&G but I'm also a UK10 in EG888 and take uk10 in AS104

    just to clear up any confusion can you return final sale for store credit if your size is not left?

    if i'm a 15.75 in mazz, will the equivalent in inglese fit?

    these are questions that need to be answered

    I would suggest 43.5. I am not fully a US 11, so I went down to a 43.5.

    So I just happened to notice the wool-lined Buttero boots and I have also noticed a marked deviation from average of temperature in my locale.

    So, one question of taste: Black or brown?

    And one practical question: Sizing... 45 Vass, 11D wide-ish Brannock, 11D Barrie. I'm thinking at least 44.5 in these.

    Anyone want to offer his thoughts?

    And tell me fast because I am thinking about adding these to an order from this afternoon.

    By the way, @Ambulance Chaser (I think), I took your advice and went with the Valstarino.

    Porter by Yoshida Brown "Tand" leather clutch portfolio

    I am working in a quite conservative environment e.g. strategy consulting for top banks - would it work ?

    from website pics it looks like "yes why not ".. or ? just wondering why it still in - looks like a very classy item

    You are right, 44.5 in Buttero. I have 44 that fit me well and I am half size smaller than you are.

    Suede Vass arrived today and they look amazing!!! Unfortunately, I guess I need to size up in the U last. They still had a 43.5 so Kyle pulled one aside so I could swap.

    FGU - what size are you normally where the 43 in U did not fit? I am considering the same shoe, but only tried on the F last when visiting Greg.

    Got my order of Dents gloves, Rota flannel pants, and a Drake's tie today. The turnaround time on ordering from you guys is ridiculously quick, I had ordered a number of things from other places in the couple weeks before I ordered from you and your stuff arrived first out of everything. Thanks for the great service.

    Anyone have any sizing advice for the Rota cotton trousers? I was talking with Stitchy and I am between a 33-34 in trousers so I was considering the size 48s. Has anyone tried them and have any advice for sizing? Are they heavy?
