• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Our lasts runs generally true to size with slightly more generous volume across width and instep (but not by much) so the general recommendation is to take your usual size. My experience with AM is that their lasts generally runs smaller and it is not uncommon for most to size up from their regular sizes though there are exceptions. For personalized sizing recommendations, please feel free to contact us.

Spade soles is certainly possible (and the norm) for most of not all of the models in our MTO catalogue for leather and vibram inserts. Full Dainite unfortunately is not possible.
Would a 9UK in Carmine Rain last also translate to a 9 UK in your brand?

How do y'all find the YSQ (soft square) compares to Bonafe's 062 and 946 lasts? The EB lasts are ever so slightly big on me, so I'm wondering if I'd be safe going down half a size with the YSQ?

@yeossal or anyone else have sizing advice on the polos (short-sleeve, if that makes a difference)? I am a pretty typical U.S. medium, and I'm leaning L but wondering if XL would be better. I'd rather the fit be too loose than too tight.

I don't have extensive fitting experience with EB lasts; only been fitted on 946. If 946 last wears slightly large for you, taking half a size down with our YSQ last sounds about right to me for a snug fit.

Perhaps the rest can chime in as well.

We suggest you measure one of your best fitting polo against our size chart. There is no difference between short and long sleeves in terms of sizing except sleeves length.

I normally take a S and took a S in the long sleeve polo. It fits slim but not tight, and the fabric is comfortable for that fit. If you prefer a more generous fit then going up one size might work out right for you, but I don't think I'd go up two sizes.

Are returns accepted for sale items (RTW shoes, in this case)? I can potentially fit half a size down, but not something I'd say with any strong degree of confidence.

Took the plunge. Really hoping the sizing works out. If nothing else, it will provide direction moving forward with future orders :-D

Cream cotton trousers with D ring closure and double forward pleats. Also, I chose to machine wash a pair of the cotton as a test and it came out with near non existent shrinkage, in case anyone was wondering since they note them as machine washable.
