Size & Fitting Guide

Shoes / Lasts / Sizing

Our sizes are calibrated to standard English (UK) size and fitting (E). A generalized conversion guide is provided below.



Our lasts have the same fitting and only the toe shape is changed. The Hawksbill last has a slight ‘Banana” shape, if you have particularly longer toes we suggest getting a half size larger. The Chisel 2 last is slightly longer than the other lasts. Our upper leathers are all sourced from tanneries in France, Italy, and Germany. We use crust and boxcalf depending on the colour and effect (such as museum and misty) that is required. The soles are oak bark tanned.

    This is my first pair of shoes from Meccariello. I have been meaning to procure an oxford shoe in suede, it is versatile and can easily be matched with different outfits and in my case different watches:) The build quality is second to none and the Hawks Bill last fits my foot well (I have a relatively high instep and I am always challenged in this department). At first, I was a bit reluctant to pull the trigger, as the Principes in Tan Suede did not look as elegant as other models in the RTW Argentum collection. But it turns out, pictures do not give it justice. This is hands down one of the most elegant shoes in my collection – awesome.

    For the record, here is some sizing comparison, I hope someone will find it helpful.
    Meccariellio, Hawks Bill – size 8 UK
    Cheaney, Last 125 – size 8 UK
    Cheaney Last 208 – size 8 UK (a bit long fitting in the toe area)
    Bontoni, not sure about the last – size 41 EUR (however 41.5 would have been a better fit for me)
    J. Fitzpatrick, Last TMG – size 7.5 UK
    J. Fitzpatrick, Last LPB – size 7.5 UK
    Di Bianco, Last 3990 – size 8 UK (9 US)

    Regards and Thank You
