This is complicated. Short answer is that I size down a whole size. But your best bet is to email Chay Cooper at AS. His email add. is on their website. He's very, very helpful. Just make sure you know your US size. To get that, I'd try on a shoe at Brooks Brothers to get your size. It should be fairly snug when you put it on. You should hear a "whoosh" sound. But it shouldn't be painful. If you get a shoe that fits like that, Chay will suggest that you size down one half and that you go up one width, so a 9 D US becomes an 8.5 E UK. The AS 8 F should work for you too. And an AS 8 G may be too wide. But... I sometimes like boots to be a little big so I can put in an insole and/or wear thicker socks. In which case, it may be perfect. Also, know that AS can make you any version of their shoes/boots, on any last, in any size for 10-20% more than their retail price, which may be 30-40% more than Bodiley's, etc. Good luck! Btw, I love suede, but if I could only have one chukka (which I do), it would be something more hearty, like pebble grain or shell.I am looking to get a pair of Alfred Sargent Chukka boots. I want the Guildford boots. I know they come in UK sizes and I was thinking about getting the Guildford from the Bodileys of Nothampton website. Should I size down a whole size in the or just half size? If I wear a 9US should I get a 8UK? Thanks for your help.
What type of boot would you recommend that can we worn as a daily casual shoe and out at nights with a pair of dark jeans? Calf, Suede, Shell, Combo? Color?
