    I think 8 F was a good move. I'm between 9.5 and 10 on Brannock, and I wear 8.5 or 9 in AS shoes/boots.
    On the Fly in SF also has a complete set of fit models for the Handgrade lasts. I posted pics of them here.


    Btw, I ordered a pair of AS premier shoes for a friend from AFPoS a few weeks ago. Service was great. Thanks!

    Long overdue post with pictures of a pair of AS Exclusive Odell in dark brown suede. The team at AFPOS were a pleasure to work with and the shoes came with a complimentary suede eraser. The shoes are beautiful and garner compliments every day. Unfortunately, the right shoe is still a bit tight and I am considering purchasing a pair of shoe-stretchers to sort me out. This is disappointing as I am normally a size UK 11 in all other UK manufacturers.

    Welcome to the 106 last. It is sleek but takes some breaking in. Give it some time and the suede should loosen up in time.

    Thank you Gerry. Mostly I'm impressed with the leather on these. Every bit as nice as that on a pair of G&Gs. I predict they are going to take on a wonderful patina.

    My large foot measure 26,7 cm and 9,8 cm wide!
    What size do you recomend in Ramsey?

    Typically we advise to add 1.5cm to the length of your feet to compare against the internal measurements that we have for all the AS lasts.

    Therefore, you would be a UK 8F for AS Ramsey (26.7cm + 1.5cm = 28.2cm UK 8F 99last = 28cm, 9.8cm is a UK F Medium width).

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    From what I understand, Royal Mail International Signed For is handed off to USPS in the US. Can anyone tell me if USPS actually required your signature for delivery? Also, tracking is stuck on "Your item has been processed through our sort facility in ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS) at 10:43 pm on May 05, 2012." Would this be cause for me to contact USPS, by any chance?

    Sounds like your package is stuck in customs.

    No, be patient, it takes a few days to clear customs. The last thing you want is to cause a stir and bring attention to your package with very nice expensive shoes. The package will eventually move through customs.
