    In general it's a half-size conversion, but it also depends on the last.

    Here's a website that will do the canonical conversion, but my experience has been that it depends on the last used to construct the shoe. So it's always best to try on the shoe, or at least a shoe constructed on the same last, before you buy:

    btw - my answer is based on my conversations with somebody from C&J england a few years ago.

    However, nobody is 100% sure as to the provenance of the new English made Polo shoes (including the one linked to above). A lot of people say C&J, but some people in the business think it is another English firm.
