I've been scoping these Charles Tyrwhitt brogues on eBay for awhile. I am hesitant to pull the trigger because I do not know how the 8.5UK size translates to 9.5US. I've never tried one on. Not sure if the price might be a bit high or not. They look good. Does anyone have experience with UK sizes, and CT shoes in particular that can speak to it? I'm trying to get one good quality pair of oxfords in my closet. http://www.ebay.com/itm/331543111062?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT The other pair I am looking at is an Allen Edmonds Strand Cap Toe http://www.ebay.com/itm/321890702642?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT The sides look a bit worn for some reason. 190 also might be high?
