lol, thats a bummer. youre kind of in no mans land
this may be optimal. i think 1 size down might be too narrow
calidist said it best, size down 3/4 size. just like i size down 1/4 size for the wingtip
How much are the Gianni and lindrick right now?
Yeah it's a fucker. I have the Marlow wingtip in 13 and find it fits ok - would probably be better in a 12.5 though. It's perfectly wearable, just not 100% correct - maybe 90%. Damn you Lifshitz!
I am wearing my Marlow/Lindrick sized Gianni's (What a name for a clearly English Boot) and they feel like heaven with normal dress socks. Sizing down would be too tight in the toe box. My 2 cents on sizing the boot. Then again I like a little wiggle room in the toe box on a lace up. No so in a loafer. Then I do size down. At least on this line and Alden and C&J.
Gianni only available in retail stores currently, sold out online.
Can I call stores to have it shipped?
And when is the sale until?
some side-to-side comparison pics of equal sized Gianni and Lindrick boot. i think we've pretty much covered the sizing and I think the difference in sizing are visible in pics. some notes:
- lindrick toe nose is more slanted
- gianni boot has higher toe box
- gianni toe box has higher "walls" (i.e. little to no slope)
- gianni boot appear longer and wider than lindrick
^^ great pics. I'm trying to get my hands on some flat wax laces for these bad boys.
That's what I had to do with my size lindricks. Called the New York location's "shoe salon". Don't know when the sale ends - probably moot because the stock is low.
Great pics, Namor. How do you rate these compared with an Indy? If I recall, you had an Indy boot in cigar...
Where are those chinos from? Got them from the store or online?
I believe the only pair of pents that Namor wears is RRL selvedge officer chinos.
^ cant go wrong. wearing the size 11 boots (1 down from tts) they felt tight initially but fit just fine now. slight little toe pinch but my feet are already as large as they can get after a long day. I think they are keepers, I even got a partial horween stamp on this pair
