Buying shoes online has never been as easy or as risk-free than buying them with The Thomas George Collection. The information below will help you decide on the most appropriate size for your feet.
We worked with our U.K. shoe designer and Spring Line (renowned Northampton last maker) to develop the lasts that have shaped the shoes you're considering today. All have been crafted in the spirit of heritage but also amended for a contemporary palettes.
Jacka's Last & Fit
Jacka's last has been created from an actual old British service boot. It features an almond-shaped elongated toe that slims at the toe box and an average waist and shallow profile.
Service Boots are generously designed for soldiers who bear heavy packs to allow for their feet to expand under the pressure. As a result, our service boots are a half-size larger than standard UK sizing. For example:
UK Grading (mm)
Jacka Last Grading (mm)
Standard UK half size difference between sizes is 4.233 mm.
Note:Sneaker sizes are often in US sizes, which are often a full size larger than UK sizing. e.g. a size 11 US will be a size 10 UK (see manufacturer for further sizing information).
Jefferies' Last & Fitting
Jefferies' Last has been created for our Semi-Brogue Oxfords. A sleek, contemporary last, with semi-square toe box with a slightly narrow heel and mid to high step.
How does a size 8 Jefferies last compare?
Crockett & Jones 341: 8.0 UK
R.M. Williams Craftsman: 8.5G
Crockett & Jones 348: 8.5 UK
Meermin RUI - 8.5 UK
Pope's Last has been created for our Penny Loafers. It features a traditional round toe box, a high instep and leather wall with generous fitting qualities. We recommend you go down a half size to your standard fitting UK size.
