These shoes are not of much interest http://cgi.aol.ebay.com/ws....MEWA:IT But the accompanying size conversion chart is. No wonder it is so hard for me to get the right fit. Edward Green says a UK10 = a US10.5; lots of other English shoe companies say that UK10 = a US11; but this chart says that a UK10 = a US11.5. What a range.

I like a loose fit. So I take a 9E in the Alden tassel loafer and an 8.5F British size in both the Church (e.g. Consul, Kingsley) and in Crockett Jones handgrade and benchgrade

That chart is dead wrong. UK size is 1/2-1 size smaller than the corresponding US size, depending on the maker.

Good point - some charts are brand specific. However, if the shoes are made in Northampton, you aren't going to see much variation from the 1/2-1 size rule.

About Italian shoes - if your foot is the least bit wide, you can almost count on buying a half size large. An Italian size 45, for instance, is commonly labeled a US 12, but it's actually more of an 11 1/2.

Edit - Prada shoe sizing is funky. Almost as bad as Weston.

Prada is truly screwed up. I'm normally a 10.5 or 11. In Prada, I take a 9 or a 9.5. An 8.5 comes very close to fitting sometimes.
