Sizing systems can vary between brands. While US to UK size conversion can be fairly straightforward, UK to European size conversion is often rounded to the nearest half-size which is where confusion can arise. Throw Japanese linear measure and Mondopoint into the mix and it can be quite the challenge to convert from one measurement accurately to another.
