1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Anyone know about the sizing of Ducker & Son (E), say, compared to C&J 348? Would I size down 1/2 from US or 1 full?

    In my experience, you need to go down only 1/2 a size from US, for example, US 11 to UK 10.5.

    Hello

    Interested about the AS Exclusive "Armfield". Saw various pictures from different angles, their shape (109 last) seems to me extraordinarily similar to EG's 202 last.

    I went recently to GJ Cleverley and saw a very close sibling (including identical calligraphy inside the little leather window). When asking what last the shoe was made on, the salesman politely answered "our own...I can't tell for sure...but the closest would be EG's 202..."

    Any opinions?

    The AS 109 is a swing last and has a very nicely balanced toe shape. After comparing to EG 202, there are similarities here. The AS Armfield are very elegant and the construction, materials quality and finish are stunning. Well worth a closer look:

    And how's the fit around the instep?

    The AS Armfield on the AS109 has a well supported instep and fitting is considered regular.

    Sorry, my English's a bit weak. What' "well supported"? Snug fit around the instep or rather generous?

    Thanks

    Not a problem, snug fit would describe the fit around the instep.

    I am a US 10.5D and have gone with a UK 9.5 in just about everything. A UK9 in Lobb 8000/7000 as the one 9.5 I have needed a tongue pad.

    I have the Moore in a UK 9.5F. Plenty of room. A 10 would be very loose. I went with a UK9.5E in the Miller boot special order. The length should be fine and I am trusting the slim width will be a good fit for what I will wear as a dress boot.

    Just wanted to bump this thread - got my pair of AS Moore today and snapped a photo when I tried them on (apologies for jeans). I should add that I'm really happy with the product and the service, as I had quite a few queries about sizing, which were answered promptly, politely and usefully. Would recommend A Fine Pair of Shoes to anyone.
