    for me, I wear a half size larger on the 99 (6.5F) compared to the 89, 109, 724, and 48 (all 6F); 106 is also 6F but is pretty narrow and because it is already a long last, a half size up would be too much for me.

    Here's a beautiful new video of Alfred Sargent's production of exclusives.

    Edit: Oops. Didn't realize AFPoS had already posted the same video.

    Enjoyed the video, thanks for the link.


    +1. I'd love to see them get the attention they deserve, and a top notch web site would facilitate this.

    Cross Post from Recent Purchases

    I pre-ordered these a few months back and happy to finally get them. My first pair of Alfred Sargents...the Radwells...quite happy with these and the fit was perfect. I see more AS's in my future.

    Thanks to Julian and Sarah for such a great first purchase experience!

    Sorry the lighting's so bad...rather overcast in SoCal this morning.

    Stop by after a few wears and post some more pics. I've never seen how the hatchgrain ages.

    Those look great, just like on AFPOS website. I would love to pick up a pair of AS shoes, but I hesitate because of my wide feet, do AS shoes run wide, or is the F width their standard?

    F is their standard.

    There is a nice AS Hunt fullbrogues at the B&S section (yes, I am the one selling :))

    I ordered a pair from Pediwear since they were giving away a free set of lasted shoe trees. They don't have my size in stock, but hopefully the factory will. Either way can't beat the price for these beauties.


    I do think it's a bit odd that the Alfred Sargent website doesn't list these.

    Thanks again for the sizing advice. Ordering a size down in the UK size from my US size should work just fine.


    Cheers,


    Dan

    Anyone have experience with the Pimlico on the 109 last from AFPOS?

    I also noticed that all AS shoes are in F width, do AS shoes seem particularly wider than other english brands in the same size?
