I've gone TTS with Barbanera. Only pair that fits a little tight are my cash boots. Cormac are a little big with dress socks but perfect with boot socks.

Allen Edmonds: 10 US

if I'm 8.5E UK in CJ, 9E UK in GG/EG would 8.5E be right? looking at these 3




edit: oh and I'm 9.5D US, though tends to be closer to the wider side (just toebox need to have good room for example GG TG73 in 9E UK is not workable, too tight in toebox while MH71 in 9E UK works and CJ 348 in 8.5E barely works, 341 in 8.5E UK works better, can wear Carmina in 8.5 but not in say Simpson)

by the way ,dumb question, anyone know how is Yoox size translated, it says something like 9.5 US is 8.5UK on their site, but I thought their size is EU not UK (i.e. I'm not sure if Yoox does EU to UK translation using the standard way, i.e. 42.5EU = 8.5UK=9.5US)
