    My Scribe monks are size 41½EU, I'm usually size 42EU narrow or 41½EU wide. Go figure. Bally makes some fine pairs, but nothing very memorable -- except these monks, which I happen to adore.

    Definitely they will be a bit too small for a US 9.5 as another SF member here who is a US 9.5 tried them on and couldn't get a foot in properly. I'd say they are probably just a smidge under a full on US9E


    Wow - were those US sized 8? That's a big difference.

    I guess if I'm ever going to sell the damned things I'm going to have to get off my lazy butt and measure them, aren't I?

    I purchased a pair of EG Sandringhams this weekend so I don't want to even think about whether or not these might have fit. Sandringham has been on my list for a long time.

    Neither of you are even close :tounge:

    To be honest I don't think these are even made in Spain.
    I like the last shape and the styling a lot, I have never heard of the brand though: Ashton and Allen.

    Not bad for €90.

    Shopping tips: Meermin is good for cheap shoes as is the shop where I got the above posted shoes (on calle de San Bartolome).
    The aren't as good as Carmina but have really good styling and are finished to a decent, goodyear welted, standard.

    Otherwise, the Serrano/ Salamanca neighbourhood is great for shopping, on my last Madrid trip I picked up a couple of Cucinelli polos and a suit at 75% off.
