    I am right on the line of 11B/C Brannock, and reckon I could've even sized down 1.5 as I said above, but good advice nevertheless. I guess the general rule is the wider your foot, the less you can go down.

    I have the Ascot. I really like the look and silhouette, but I will mention a very minor quality control issue I've experienced with them: I've found that over time (I've had them a bit less than a year), some of the stitching has relaxed to the point of pulling out ever so slightly. It hasn't effected the structure of the boot yet, but in time I may need to take it to a cobbler to clean things up.

    Ascot and the other lines aren't built as well as the 1000 mile boots proper.

    I have these as well. Decent boots and they've got a nice shape once broken in. I don't like the half rubber/really plasticky leather sole thing, I'll probably go have these re-soled with a proper leather sole in the near future. I got 'em with 25-30% off from Revolve, I wouldn't pay anywhere near full price for these things.

    BTW I just wanted to say Thank you for the responses about my sizing Question. I decided to grab the Dark Brown 1000s in only a half size smaller (11 1/2) due to my semi-wide feet. I'll keep you guys updated on my impressions.

    Can you recommend me some leather conditioner I can easily buy in the UK? I could probably get Obenauf through Amazon.com but I would rather buy something that I can easily find in the Europe.

    Will probably be fine. The 1000 miles are pretty forgiving IMHO.

    Do you think the Addison in black could be worn with something dressier than denim? I'm not talking about a suit, because that wouldn't obviously work, but cords, flannels, tweeds, or a crombie coat.

    Torn between wolverine 1000 miles black wingtip and the normal plain toe, any opinions? Paring with jeans if that matters.

    Thanks for the ascot comments.

    Any advice to share on the Wolverine Ascot sizing?

    I love my 1000s I just got in Brown the quality is amazing. Great buy I'd recommend grabbing them from needsupply with the 10% code if you're looking for a pair.

    I went with a 9.5, which is 1/2 a size smaller than I wear in Clark's Desert Boots. They fit me well.
