    Would these work for a UK9.5 or 10? I assume that's a US 10 or 10.5. How many do you have?

    According to the sizing charts UK 10 regular ("F") fit is right on the cusp from M to L. (would be spot on for a Wide("F") UK fit) Charts say too big for UK 9.5 - unless its a longer last. I've 5 pairs.

    Yep, must have been you. Wait for Feb 3 :)




    Not sure. I'm guessing between AUD550 - 600 which would be around the same as the Armoury if I'm correct.

    My experience is just best to pull it out of your bank at a, sympathetic, ATM where ever you are.

    I can back that up from my experience during my recent China trip. Struggled to get 6rmb to the dollar in Australia with the average offer being 5.8. In China itself it was easy to pick up 6.3 anywhere including the ATM's.

    At the time the going exchange rate was around 6.55 so 5.8 was a 10% cut off the top. Nice work if you can get it

    When I went to Japan last month I took a chance with one of the small money exchange places. I bought about 250,000yen from Raffles Forex on 35 Elizabeth St near Flinders St which gave at least 2.5yen to the dollar more than any of the banks. At that time it was during that nasty dip where the rate was about 75.5yten to the dollar. Raffles gave 74.2. It's got only one shop there, and only opened a couple of years ago, but I got a good deal so it's all good.

    Anyone getting any P Johnson this year? I think it is going to be my time in a month or two. When my piggy bank is full. Literally.

    I'm in!

    I rang the other day but he's closed up shop until the 10th (says the message service...which I figure might just be his wife?)

    On the 10th I will ring. Super excited!

    Awesome! What are you looking at getting? I'm going to get a classic navy sport coat I think (I don't have much call for suits). I don't recall seeing any pictures of sport coats (as opposed to suits) from P Johnson on SF or elsewhere, but I'm sure it'll work out great.

    I wish :(
    A new car and new mortgage means no new clothes/shoes for quite a while

    I probably shouldn't - I am doing a reno at the moment and planning a trip OS too! However, I figure I am permitted at least one new suit a year ....

    hopefully these are the right size for someone - unfortunately they're a size to big for me or I'd be all over them (my other C&J's are all 8.5E.... 9E would be OK, 9.5E is too big :( )

    very very good price for handgrades IMHO, i've got one pair of Handgrades and they're easily my favorite shoes.

    edit: not my auction, don't know the seller, just thought it was a good buy.
