    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    GG is usually half size down from your typical US size, so unless you're typically 9.5D US, I wouldn't go for 9 E UK

    I'm really glad I checked in here before ordering. Looks like I'll be going with a 9.5 rather than the 9 I originally intended to order. Appreciate the advice I've received!

    I wear a 10D Allen Edmonds
    He's right my first pair of St. James are in a 9E and they are a little snug until wearing for about 20 minutes
    I bought a 9.5E Arran from Barney's and they feel much better

    I'm a 10.5 in Allen Edmonds' number 5 last and the length with respect to the ball of the foot is pretty spot on. In Gaziano and Girling's TG73 last I'm a UK10 and the length is just about perfect. Just keep in mind that everybody's feet are different.

    Yeah, it looks pretty hot but I prefer NSTs not that sleek. The Connaught looks great on the TG73. Too bad the Arran is on the D last; too narrow for me.

    Thanks for the sizing advice.

    What's people's opinion on the best last for their Oxford? EG 202 was too blobby for me. I wanted Vass F last, but had some creasing in front of toe cap of OE II, despite it being the correct size.

    If you like the shape of the Vass F last then the smart round toe DG70 should work well for you.

    For anyone lazy on the math. Oxfords + Lasted Shoe trees =730 less 20%= 584 current conversion to $896 us.

    No - I think my math was with the Vat stripped out.

    You can use the Discount Code Word "Bespoke" on anything over £500.00 for 20% discount in the checkout. So I thought you did that.

    Without VAT, you would be starting from 615 instead of 738 for the not on sale item, for the on sale item you would start from 500

    There are plenty of shoes there for 500 GBP after VAT has been deducted. Add lasted trees for 115 equals 615 GBP.

    Take 20% off of that using the discount code and you are left with 492 GBP, which is approximately 755 USD.

    You know a thread is on fire when people are enabling others to the point of doing GBP to USD conversions for them. :slayer:
