    The grenson masterpiece l am ordering (from Bennies) were originally intended for La Cordonnerie Anglaise in Paris. Does this mean the shoe sizings are in french measurements?

    Are the bennies shoes true to size? l am usually a size 7. Should l order a size 7 or 7.5?

    I believe the Bennies measurements are true to size.

    l am abit confused now. How can you be sure. l heard that [most of] the overstock of grensons were intended for Paul Stuart. This would mean an english size 7 would be a size 7.5. But how does this work when the shoe [i'm getting] was orinally for La Cordonnerie Anglaise in Paris.

    I have the original boxes to my Grensons and they read 10F when the shoe is listed as 10.5D by Bennies.

    The nproblem is that different shoes have different measurements. Not all shoe were [originally] intended for Paul Stuart.

    Actually, l'll make it simplier. Would a (bennies) grenson stowe be a size 7.5 [whilst l am a english size 7? Hope this makes sense.

    Hi, I'm wondering this too.....are the sizes of the Grensons on the Bennie's website the US or UK size? ie, the page for size 8 on Bennies is a UK8 or a US9?

    I usually wear UK8.5, IT43, or US9.5.....I'm led to believe that this is all the same size shoe under the 3 different sizing systems.

    I am sure the shoes on Bennie's websites are marked in U.S. sizes. I ordered several shoes and they all fit true to size (U.S.)
