the aldens are only 600 odd because its equine leather thats all, trickers etc.. go for same if in same leather,. ive been wanting some for ages just because they look and feel so different to calfs leather, plus the leather wears nicer and would probably outlive you if looked after

Ruben, you should check out Loake longwings at that price. Recommend to take a half-size smaller.

Anyone know what Mark Mcnairy derby boot sizing is like?

I'm a 10 in clarks desert boots, tried a 10 in some grenson fred and they were huge, so I imagine i would be a 9 in grenson.

I had some S/Double chukkas that were made by Sanders, had a half size down and they were too small for me so I would have needed to go true to my trainer size.

which shoe? Lots of contradictory advice about. I sized down on Maine Guides. There has been a fair bit of give in the leather, but they are still slightly tight.

Maybe best to go TTS..

Bear in mind on the Yuks, they offer two width fittings. If you size down, I'd say go with 'F; rather than 'D'.
