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
in 6.5E? Thanks for saving me some $
Wear them in good health! Post pics when you get them!
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
my pleasure, now trying very very hard to ignore the hove. hope someone else kops it .
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.
Ha, what's the damage report stitch?
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.
Just one pair with trees, that's all.
For anyone lazy on the math. Oxfords + Lasted Shoe trees =730 less 20%= 584 current conversion to $896 us.
and another 20% off VAT
