Grease Monkey came in this morning. Decided to get a size 3 over 2 and I'm glad I did, I probably wouldn't have been able to roll the sleeves up on the 2. Gabardine works well for the jacket, just need to get the wrinkles out.

I had the same reaction! :D Few Fukers on here I think. I was talking to Abagnale about that Kimono. Is it the down version?
Ha - small worlds mate. And yep, its the down version. Think 2018 but may have been the 17 one... either way, it has the orange insides.

legit, i am also us12, and i owned the 1st iteration of Grizz back in 2011 in US11 and man, did I struggle with pain at the end of the day everytime i wore them. and the 1st iteration was the widest one by far, so clearly look for US12 instead.

Any advise on sizing for these? I am usually an US12 in Vis.


A legit check wouldn't go a mis either, given the price.
well surprisingly I fit into a us11 when Im usually a 12 in visvim and 13 in Nikes. But also find it greatly depends on the year. Can’t fit into Grizzly Mids in 11 and the dainite bison from last year are tight in a 12.

Cheers guys. Can anyone ID this pair? I have a pair on YJP that could be an option. Is it SS14?

clearly depends on the year, I owned 3 pairs of high and one pair of Mids. Mids Griz tend to fit TTS indeed. and different iterations means slight difference in fit indeed, due to the materials used mainly but also construction too (Norwegian welt or not). I still own the SS16 ones, and while they almost fit like a 13 in length, they are not that wide, however you could size down to a 11 in these probably. They are built with the Norwegian welt, meaning they are higher, and I believe somehow this give some tiny extra length as well :

The tightest ones I owned were the kudu version paired with the luxsic denim from 2012. But as I said earlier, for big dudes like us, it is fair recommending to never size down and stick to your normal size.

I tried a pair in US11 at FIL, and they felt vey tight, especially given the bison leather used is very tough and not stretchable....the sole comfort felt also super weird on the ones I tried...
