• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

One simplified rule I use when recommending AM size to my friends:

1. For first time buyers, take JL/ TLB +0.5 for Chisel 1/2, Mayfair and Round
2. For Hawksbill, Soft square and Aeris Soft Square, further add 0.5

That semi brogue pair is in Round last? Down 0.5 from soft square would be right for some but tight for some other.
Thank you very much for this helpful info. That's what I've contemplated as well. I'm generally a UK7,5 but take UK8 for some, such as Bestetti, GG, EG. For Vass, it depends on the last.

How is the B last compared to the soft square length, width wise and room in the toe box?

I don’t have Argentum B shoes. From what i have read from AM website, Last B fits similar to Chisel 1/2 and Round. Soft square is well-known for its low instep which is not an issue on his other lasts.

You can refer to the size comparison data here:

I did look there before. Think I'm going to take my chance with UK7,5. Does AM offer returns/exchange for RTW?

Yes, provided that no metal toe plate/ Vibram insert was ordered with the shoes. In other words, shoes - soles in particular - have to remain in pristine condition.

Better double-check and verify sizing with Angela before you order, just to be safe 😉😉

angela does a good job to confirm and ascertain your size prior to shipping. However once its shipped, to exchange, you will be liable for all cost

Are there any good online guides that show how to properly maintain dress shoes?

Highly recommend Kirby Allison, easy to follow videos about everything from regular maintenance to how to achieve a mirror shine.
Agreed, and I would also recommend the Elegant Oxford Youtube channel
Just don't listen to his BS about Saphir Renomat or Renovateur are ok to be used in good quality shoes. It will!

Sadly I fell for it.

I like shoegazing.com for the polishing guide posted there. It’s well written and includes pictures for reference. Kirby Allison is where I started when I wanted a video of shoe polishing though lately watching Japanese shoe-shining champions is my go to. You can look up The Way Things Go shoe shine or The Armoury Shoe shine, then move to other recommended videos.

Have anyone checked with AM if they are going to do Black Friday Sale?
I dont really think They will... and i dont think it because black friday is an american thing, like pay pal, he dont have pay pal in his webstore.

The only discounts you Can find for Mecariello is in his outlet stock.
