    I am ordering a pair of shoes for myself and one for a colleague from Pediwear. As I am a 13 US and they don't carry half sizes, I am going to try the Highgrove in a 12F UK and hope for the best.

    My colleague, however, is a much easier-to-fit 10D US. He is piggybacking on my shoe obsession, but is concerned about getting the right size the first time. Carol at Pediwear recommended a 9.5F, but I have heard that for C&J non handgrade going down a full size is often a better idea. Given that the Sargents are F fitting, would a 9F be a better choice?

    I'd particularly like to hear from Dr. Bresch, as the Wigmores are Premier line shoes, which seem to be almost all F-fitting.

    All I can say is that the .5 size differential worked perfectly for every Sargent I ordered, which is 1 Premier, 1 Knightsbridge, 1 Classic, and 1 Country. And it worked across brands and countries: I take a 8.5 US in C&J loafer (the Cavendish, from Lanvin in NYC 10 years ago)) and Handgrade (the Seymour, from Barneys), and an 8.5 US in the Knightsbridge Yardley (from Brooks Brothers). I never worried about width because I am a D American, the standard I think. So I thought everything I ordered was E width, but I could be wrong. But I didn't think about it because there is only one width, excdept for the special line for wide feet.
