The shoe is made by hand in the makers lap or standing at a last jack . The procedure is to place the upper over the edge of the last with the back slightly below the back of the last and pull over the form of the last . Handlasting does not require machinery only handworking tools.
This sizing chart is designed as a comparison to commonly used sizing systems . The systems differ in what they measure , what unit of measure they use and where the size 0 is positioned . The english system for mens shoes that i use is based on the length of the last measured in barleycorn 1/3inch . If you are uncertain of your size and how it translates to my sizing system please email and we will endeavour to assess your size .
