    How does the sizing run on JS shoes? I tried on a pair of loafers a year or so ago and recall having to size down. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out what my size would be (normally a US 9.5 or 10) would be, as they only had sizes that were way too small or too big.

    Just get 1 size smaller than your U.S. shoe size.

    Are you sure? As far as I know, Jil does all their manufacturing in Italy in house. They have their own factories even for suits and shoes. Church's used to manufacture their shoes but it is now in house except for the handmade lines which is done by Lattanzi. Maybe the MIJ was before?
    I agree. I've only seen jeans that were Made in Japan, as well. All the shirts I've had, from WAY back when Jil designed through Prada, were made in Italy. In the old days, some leather goods and items were made in Germany, but I've not seen much Japan-made stuff outside of denim (and most of that was in s/s 05 and thereafter, when Jil came back). As for shoes, when Prada had them, they made them in their facilities, and then when raf took over, they started to produce a few models with Church's. Now, as you mentioned, I'm assuming it's all in-house (except the Lattanzi ones).

    In your case, is the 9.5 the size on the shoe/box (UK size, if I remember correctly), or the "US equivalent" size, i.e. UK 8.5/US 9.5? Hopefully that makes sense....

    If you are a US 11 you are probably a 9.5 in JS. 1.5 is the way to go. Sizing down just 1 might still leave them a bit big for a lot of their shoes.

    And the few pairs I own all have done this. And the same thing for the majority of the 70-80 pairs that Jef owns.
