Clothing and shoe sizes


Clothing and shoe sizes don't just vary between the US and the UK, they also vary
between countries in continental Europe, so picking your size is not the easiest task in the
world!

As well as this, in my and my wife's experience, different designers and makes of clothes
have their own definition of "size 8" or "taglia 42", so it's always best to try things on
first. The cut or last really makes a difference!
