I did not say that you size incorrectly, I just re-iterated what was said. If you look at my previous post, I put the conversion for you. I don't think that dude understands the conversion. He may be a 10 US and purchase a 10 UK thining they are the same, when it's clear they are two different sizes and this is without even taking the last into consideration.

Thanks for the input.

I'm a TTS Us 9 therefore an Uk 8. That's it. 

 

If they fit too big I'm sure they'll change it

The two above you said TTS in uk sizing and you were the one saying 1/2 down, am I wrong? 
Sorry, you did not. In fact, this proved you didn't read anything anyone said cause Pinoy indicated SFC sized incorrectly. He didn't say anything about TTS. Forget I said anything cause it seems you're hell bent on ordering the wrong size regardless of whatever advice received.

It's saying UK 9 is EU 43. I wear EU 43 in all European sneakers/formal shoes. So my conversion from American shoes is probably off (I was using Allen Edmonds as my reference) , but the Meermins still fit when I bought my pair.

If you're a size 43 EU then you're a 10 US and a 9 UK
Tom hits it on the head.

They will. RIP to that return shipping charge though.

Nah, man's gone learn today.

Yeah shipping back to Spain isn't cheap.

To get an idea of how the different meermin lasts fit differently from each other I think there was a thread on styleforum with people sharing how the different ones fit them.

I just ordered my reg size and they fit with some heel slip. Not sure if sizing down would've made them uncomfortable.

From here, just cop some heel/tongue pads to fill that space.

I'm on a mission now lol... They're based in the UK though, so if a med doesn't fit... I'm sol on the return.

Not that it matters, but I believe schotts sold in the U.K. are not made in the US.

Oh lord.

Will head to SF for more

Dude, I'm just letting you know. A lot of people are into schott because they're an old school American brand that's been around forever. People love the fact that it's American made. Didn't want you to make a purchase and then find out that it's not American made.

VIP code on macys.com for 30% extra off. Got some full suits for under a buck. This RL Polo one even comes down to $105. I was just about to cop a Michael Strahan brand from JcP but this is even better deal

Anyone heard of Grant Stone shoes? Been reading that their long wing bluchers are Alden replicas for the fraction of the cost(made in china). Contemplating whether or not I should get some Aldens or just go the cheaper route

Birthday dinner coming up this weekend, Heading to a restaurant/lounge with a couple of friends and found this blazer that I'd like to wear.

With it being white, do you guys think it is too formal for the occasion?

Any of you guys have experience with DSTLD? I've seen their ads on social media and finally checked out the page today. The worn black skinny-slim jeans caught my eye as I've been trying to find a pair of jeans in this shade for a while.

Haven't heard of those but I have the extra slim jeans from Grana and they're really good. Cheaper than the option you posted as well.

More applicable here than in the Denim thread, imo

Time to stock up on Acne jeans

^ What color suit is that?

 

Looks like brown belt/shoes would work just fine.

post #66055 of 66674
It's a really dark grey

I'm just worried with the black shirt and gold tie will it look goofy

Fair enough

Saw the denim discussion, from someone who only used to buy Levi's, grana jeans are the real deal.

Have 3 of the extra slim and they're all really comfortable and stack perfectly. I also used Adrian's code for like 10% off ? Maybe 15?

They're great jeans

Gray suit, black shirt, gold bow tie, brown shoes and belt? No. Never ever. You'll look pretty foolish.

I never understood dark solid colored shirts with suits.

 

Egregious with the gold tie too. You can't do that dark grey suit + brown belt/shoes + white shirt + navy tie?
