    Barneys lists both the US and EU size for G&G.

    Sometimes the UK sizing is off at Barneys. The G&G I ordered were labeled 10 US / 9 UK online but in actuality they are 10 US / 9.5 UK.

    The US size is the accurate size listed.

    Thanks.. That was what I was hoping to confirm.

    Now just a question of whether I want to pull the trigger.

    I wondered about that myself. Thanks for confirming that the US size is actually correct.

    SUITED - what did you get?



    ime, half size down for GG is the way to go.


    but the US size is meaningless. its not a US made shoe. its just a conversion some dude made up. basically, barneys sizes down a half size from US to UK, not a full size like their site suggests. so whatever UK size you need in GG, buy a half size larger in the listed US size on their site. that should get you the proper fitting shoe. again, ime.

    Their sizing guidance just stinks basically.

    I'm glad I got my first pair from Leffot, they were right on.


    Thanks Stitches.

    I visit Leffot probably far more often than I should.

    Let me contribute my two cents worth to this discussion: I have both the wholecut Sinatra and the (wholecut) Chelsea boot Burnham, both on the DG73 last. Both purchased from Leffot. But for whatever reason, when I tried both pairs on I was a half size smaller with the Sinatra than the Burnham. Again, same last.

    I also have the Rothschild on the DG70 so clearly that's a different last but I have it in the same size as the Burnham.

    So for whatever reason the Sinatra fits better - for me - a half-size down.

    my GGs are on the 71 and the 73, and an 11UK is perfect for me in both. due to the barneys size issue the ones i have in the 73 are an 11.5 and i need a dr schols insert to make them fit, an 11 would be right on the money. at least they were not too small.

    Yeah, Barney's G&G feel generous in the toe box. Not enough to size down, atleast not in my case, but very confortable nonetheless

    I believe you cannot (for the most part) go wrong with this sizing help. It works very well for me.
