    1. Hi Tracy
      The shirt is a size 6 which, on the Lacoste website, is the same as a large. For the shoes, the description says "27cm" from what I can tell that's a size 8 (EUR).

  2. Thank you! He doesn't seem as small as I thought.

    1. I think this ensemble is from circa 1950s or so when Charlie was a bit plumper. The shoe size is about right. 8 is still on the small side for a man.
