    i never said that 'F' widths were made for the US market . . .

    i was only concurring with isshinryu101's comment that UK sized, F-width, Santoni 'Fatte a Manos' made for the European market, run very large, and as a general rule of thumb i have found it best to size down 1.5 from one's US size . . .

    in this sense, they are similar to tricker's on the 4444 last (in many persons' experience). i however, do concur with your thoughts on C&J sizing, as practically every last i've tried has resulted in me dropping down 1 full size from my Brannock 11D US measurements . . .

    cheers as well, for the lovely collection of photos that you've posted on this site . . .

    Your photography skills are quite good. When taking pics of antiqued shoes, lighting is very important because too much makes the antiquing look overdone, and too little can hide it. Your other Santoni photos made my mouth water.

    These are FAM shoes, not LE, but are special in their own right.

    So, may I presume you are funded by the UN's international initiative to 'bail out' the upper end shoe making industry worldwide?

    You should see them in person. In my opinion, they are the best monks ever made. The curves, lines, and waists are unusual on them. The closet I've seen to bespoke of any pair. These 3 monks above are teh most expensive shoes they ever offered and they made one in each size. Quite rare.

    Those boots are something special. Very nice leather and fine details but very raw at the same time. Like them, would come handy during the swedish winter :)

    Thank you. I enjoy them during the Colorado winter as well. Style and substance at the same time. It took me 3 years to get teh patina on them to look like this.
