I'm in America Giles,  I was just asking how things are done there. I do hope to join F&C!

Good on you, we can go to the chippy, then the pub, drink far too much, have an argument about footy which results in a night in the cells and then you will be truly inducted as an Englishman  ;D

Question for American folks, who makes the footwear for the retailer Steven Alan? There stuff is made in the USA and I see that they have a relationship with both Alden and Thorogood, does anyone know if it's either of them?

I don't think so.  Today is National Baked Alaska Day, which is traditionally a quiet day of rest and introspection.

Well, I unfortunately have had a incident with my favorite moccs that has left me short a casual shoe. Was looking at possibly picking up some birkies, notably the Alabama, but have no idea on sizing, or general experience with the brand. Given that there are a few fans here, looking for any help or relative input

Go by EU size, I am a 42.5 in sneaker, 42E in boots (whites boots) and I am a 42 wide width in Birkies :)
Maybe order a pair and send em back? Birkies are nothing rare and most of the retailers has every size in stock. Or go into a store...

Looking at them, pretty sure I would need a 44, which is the same as my Mephistos...wanted to be sure they ran true. Nearest retailer to my knowledge is an hour away in a town I don't get to often. Thanks for the advice

Hi jdl,
like jmc I´m EU 42,5 - 43, UK 9, US 9,5-10.
I rotate two Boston in 42 and 43 in normal width.(There is also a slender width)
They are very comfortable and last a life time, if you don't step to often on the edge of the cork latex footbed.
