Pinky and brain wears denim!

Pinky and brain wears denim!

April 28, 2017

So it's pretty obvious who is who in "PinkyAndBrain_Wears_Denim" Ha ha. It was Thomas who came up with the name, so he must be Pinky... Well we both like denim and we like the fact that you buy a raw product and sculpt it yourself! We don't agree on everything! But one thing is for sure - We do not hunt fades... Put on the jacket, shirt or jean and don't look back! It simply cannot be just about the fades... its about the journey!

Indigofera - New strong brand at Brund

March 17, 2017

Through the years we have had many of you ask us for specific brands and one that has come up often is Swedish Indigofera Prima Jeans. It is not that we do our buying on a whim or pick our brands on a feeling of what is hot - so to speak. However when popular demand goes hand in hand with a brand we as professional jean-slingers respect and admire very much for their great quality and awesome products, who are we to disagree.

Thank you, Sir!

November 22, 2016

Brund is built on high quality products, great service and happy customers. We try to mark all of our products reasonably, but quality is never cheap. So instead of putting a discount on our goods to attract seasonal bargain hunters, we strive to give you a fair price - and that extra something - each and every time you shop with us. Therefore - No Black Friday deals here! We do, however, want to thank you for your loyalty throughout almost 13 years (or however long you have been with us). We truly do appreciate you and your support!

Sizing

CLOTHING SIZES

For clothing sizing information, please read the description of the given product carefully.

If no sizing information is available, please do not hesitate to ask us before purchasing.

We will do our best to respond as quickly as possible.

Have a sizing question? Let us know.

HOW TO FIND YOUR BOOT SIZE

If you are shopping for a pair of Red Wing shoes or boots, the first thing to consider with regards to sizing is this:

Most Red Wing boots, like the popular Iron Ranger and the Beckman run big. Therefore we recommend sizing down half a size from your sneaker-size if you are purchasing Iron Rangers, Beckmans and most other Red Wing boots. However, the Red Wing chukkas (3140, 3141 etc.) are true to size. Therefore we recommend ordering your sneaker-size if you are purchasing chukkas.

Please read the sizing-description on each style carefully, before ordering.

Size systems

There are many shoe size systems globally, with the US, UK, European and Japanese size systems as the most common ones. The US system also has a special category for athletic shoes.

In Europe, shoe makers are supposed to follow the same shoe-size system. Note however, that sizes might differ between e.g. France and Germany. The sizes also aren't totally standardized, which means that shoes from different manufacturers might have different sizes, although they have the same measurements.

Size chart

Size charts are used to convert between different international shoe size systems. Notice that these size charts are only to be seen as guides meant to help you find your right size. Sizes and size charts may differ notably between different shoe manufacturers and brands. See the Brund shoe/boot size chart here.

Shoe last

In order to build a Goodyear Welted boot (e.g. a Red Wing boot) to an exact size and width, the boot is constructed around a shoe last.

A last is used in shoemaking to give footwear its three-dimensional shape. Resembling the human foot, the last determines toe, heel and girth dimensions for fit, style and function.   

Do notice that there is no such thing as a "normal foot" and therefore not a standard shoe last - and therefore also not a "normal shoe size". Add to that the fact that most people’s right and left feet have different measurements.

Learn about Red Wing lasts and the Anatomy of a Red Wing at www.redwingheritage.com.

Shoe width

Most shoemakers make some of their shoes in multiple widths, from narrow to extra-wide.

US width is measured as A, B, C, D, E, EE with A as the narrowest, EE as the widest and the standard width being D.

English made men’s shoes and boots are generally made in fittings E, F, G and H and these can quite simply be classified as follows:

E=  Narrow
F=  Medium
G=  Wide
H = Extra Wide

Loake uses F or G and Crockett & Jones uses E and G.

The right size

A new pair of e.g. Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes.

The full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time, with each wear.

Measuring your feet

Stand up straight on a hard surface with your heel against the wall and a piece of blank paper taped to the floor, flush against the wall beneath your foot.

Have a friend mark the longest part of your foot (referred to as heel-to-toe length) on the paper with a pen, or measure yourself if necessary. Repeat with the other foot, as right and left sizes may be different. Use a ruler to measure the heel-to-toe length you marked for each foot.

View the BRUND shoe/boot size chart here

When using the chart, take note that ”CM” is NOT your heel-to-toe length in centimeter (cm), but the official shoe size (CM) 

Guidelines

If you have a medium or standard foot and use US 9,5 in New Balance Lifestyle, you will probably use US 9 in Red Wing, Thorogood and Chippewa and UK 8,5 in Loake and Crockett & Jones.

I use US 9,5 in New Balance Lifestyle and my right foot measurement is 28,5 centimeters from heel-to-toe. My size in New Balance Performance is US 10,5.

Confused ? – then, please read from ”Size systems” again ;-)
