I looked on their site, and there are a bunch of pictures available for smaller sizes (7-9.5) so you may want to check it out if you are a smaller size and are interested in their shoes.

Can't wait to get my Radley and Rugby from them.

15 and 16 in the 9.5 looks really cool, which shoes are those?

No. 13 in the 8.5 is the Stowe that I bought in a size 10. Wow.-look at nos. 11 and 16 in the 8.5. I wish my foot would shrink. see http://benniesshoes.com/grenson8.5.htm BTW, I was at the Piedmont Road store at lunch-time today and no. 16 was in the rack in a size 9.5-still too small. This shoe was on P***l S****t's web-site last year.

Are you sure the #16 is from the Masterpieces series? Is the sole channeled?

Have you seen #11 up close? Is it as nice as it appears from the pictures?

Yes and yes. I bought that shoe in dark brown from Paul Stuart last year.

No. 11 is even nicer. I posted about this model before. I said it was what P***l S****t called, in a two-year old catalogue, an "antiqued tan oxford with Italian style toe cap." Bennie's did not have it in my size, but I got what P***l S****t called an "antiqued tan penny loafer with short saddle and Italian style toe cap." It is very distinctive and beautiful.

Found another pair of their shoes that may work for me, so I picked them up, Appears to be similar to the Eton, but captoe, with broguing in the front and near the laces, in burgundy.

We'll see how these work also.

the sizes are adjusted to read for the US sizing from what we have discovered in terms of in-store fit, and as we have had few exchanges or returns, i do believe they are going to fit as most us shoes do

Are these made on the same last as the regular Stowe (92)?

Thanks Chris. Will you by any chance be getting any of the # 2,11,15 and 16's from the 8.5 section in a US size 9?

Best regards
