    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.
