    Crap, I messed this up.

    Paul Stuart is marking in UK, selling UK. Plan accordingly.

    I tend to be a narrow-ish UK 10 but a 10.5 in EG/GG, so I was surprised when ordering a 10 from Paul Stuart to net a 10 UK E width worked fine in the TG73, a last I had never tried. Conversely, in KN14, I have a pair of loafers in 10.5D that I would probably prefer to be a ~10.3D, whereas the 10D was alarmingly tight when I tried them.

    If this ^ is in fact true, you ought to inform the people that work there (in-store, that is) since they have no idea (or don't inspire confidence when they fumble to answer).

    It explicitly states its in British sizing, not American

    I think that was my reasoning when I ordered a pair of boots from ps in the fall. They fit as expected (no issues). I just can't remember what size I ordered according to the website. Either way 11/11.5 is pretty straightforward.

    Well guys, I don't know.... I just looked at my old order form, & I ordered size 12. Size 11.5 UK came, so take that for what its worth.

    That's the thing with Paul Stuart, my impression is they usually just ship out from their NYC store, so fulfillment means who is manning the shoe department. That's why best to always call

    Interesting the preference to move the SJ II design; for my preference the Original SJ works.

    haha, yeah, I think Im pretty confident with 11/11.5 being what it is haha but for the other shoes, I guess calling would be best. Im pretty solidly somewhere in between 11/11.5 & 11.5/12 UK for G&G, so I guess both work for me. Just as long as they don't send me 10.5 UK haha.

    Is the peak heel counter on the SJ II the only difference or are there others?

    The Adelaide is smaller on the original design, and since I wear 6.5E, makes it look more balanced. No one will probably notice the proportion difference though.

    Oh, I'm pretty sure on the PS G&G the listed size on the web is U.K. I went to the store earlier and the '7' was U.K. E. Obviously I was dissapointed with being 0.5 off...
