    Hi Guys, I haven't bought any dress shoes in a while and I was unsure of my size, so I measured my foot and via this chart http://shoes.about.com/od/fitcomfort/a/men_inches.htm I come out to be about a 10D (even though I wear an 11.5 sneaker, so thought that was odd), what should I order in these? Richard suggested a 9.5, but I don't want them to be too big, anyone familiar with AS have ideas? Thanks! Ben

    It's likely that your sneaker size is larger than that of a dress shoe but only stating your sneaker size isn't enough. What exact sneaker are you referring to?

    Regarding Sargent lasts, I'm guessing (the key word here) that the Half Brogues are on the 104 last and the Chukka is on the 87.

    I am a 10.5 US and wear a UK 9.5 on the 104. I ordered the Chukka in a UK 10 as the 87 simply looks a bit wider and likely has a rounder, shorter toe. I hope I'm right! If anyone has any other experience with these and suggests a different size I'm all ears. Thanks!

    Does anyone know which Sargent last these are on? 87 or 99 last maybe?

    I have some Sargent made BB Peals on the 87 and 99 lasts; the TRL monks are definitely not on the 87. They don't look like the 99 either. Here's what was stamped inside:

    TRL01 MSWS
    1653 8 16308
    LEATHER UPPER/LINING
    MADE IN ENGLAND

    Too bad Sargent didn't stamp the inside with a recognizable last number. I was sort of hoping they'd be on the 99 but oh well

    Nike brand sneakers, such as Air Max, etc I wear an 11.5, and wear a 12 sometimes in Puma, if that helps.

    Any ideas guys? I really want to order the right size, I measured my foot and it is approximately 10.65" in length, and about 3.9" in width, so should I get a 9 or 9.5UK on TRL?

    FWIW, I've measured my foot - 10.8 inches. I take a standard 9.5UK. Width 4.3 inches and I take a standard width fitting. I presume you have a narrow foot?
