    They run rather large, I can't remember what size I buy though. I think I wear like a 41 in CP's but a 7.5 in Jil laceups- I had the techno toe ones and I think they were 7.5 but not sure now.

    do you think I'd be safe sizing them the same as I size my Paul Smith shoes? I'm looking at a 6 UK in Jils and that's what I usually get for PS. If so, it'd be a huge score for me; I need a pair of black shoes in a pinch.


    edit: my actual shoe size is a US 8 (in converse etc).

    I think those would be too small. I wear an 8 in Cons too, so I am thinking you want a 7 in Jils.

    You could try them out though - if they're 6 they're somewhere around a 40 so that is a common size here in case you need to get rid of them.

    :( damnnnn. thanks Drew!

    edit: yeah, I might just pull the trigger and just flip them or return them if they don't work. I mean, they're at a steep discount. I really hope they work, because they down time on waiting for them to come, and then sell if they don't work, will cost me time and I'm probably going to need them pretty quickly.

    Is it possible to get pants tapered starting from about an inch or two beneath the knee? I have large calves so the calf area fits well on some pants I own, but the hem is enormous.

    I don't see why not. I've made similar requests to mine and I will usually make a marking on them with tailor chalk just to make sure. (he's an older polish guy so bit of a language barrier)

    Well, they're dress (suit) pants. I just figure that getting them tapered starting from two inches beneath the knee will make them look really strange when not being worn, which is why I ask.

    I've gotten pants tapered below the knee and they've worked out. I only notice anything when in a very specific position, and I'm the only one who has ever noticed it (mainly because I know they were tapered).

    I didn't want to get all ghey on him as an example, though I definitely could have. It was just some guy I saw with his family today that made me post that.

    no no no. Everything American does not fall under the Americana umbrella. There is American style and the American fantasy. Brooks Brothers 1818 can cross over as the whole brand is not just American style. Hilfiger though make-believe prep is not Americana. Geller is just fucking european. Same with Alexandre and the same with Cloak.
