    Their Alfred Sargent shoes are now £79 instead of the usual £221:

    I just bought their suede semi-brogue in UK8.

    Any knowledge of shipping limitations (i.e. will they ship internationally)?

    I'm guessing that they shipped to you in SWE.

    Yes, they ship all over the world AFAIK. Very good service, at least on the shirts I ordered last time.

    Has anyone owned any shoes from "Thin Red Line". I've never heard of them, are they any good?

    They are made by Alfred Sargent, at least the nail pattern indicates that. And looks to be made to their Premiere standard, which is very good. And for £79 it is definitely a good buy IMO as they cost at least 200 from Pediwear.

    It's tough to buy shoe within seeing it in person.... put the fit issue aside, i always have the problem where the shoe looks so much better online than you walk into the store.

    Is a Euro 42/UK8 a US 8.5, or 9 on these? Thanks

    As a reference:
    I wear 10 UK in Alfred Sargent and a 10.5 US in every American shoe I own.
    So I would suggest you only add 0.5 to get the US size.
