I used this expression the other day and my English husband had no idea what I
was talking about. Apparently this has not crossed the pond. I then asked him
if he had heard "from top to toe" and the answer was no. Of course, those two
expressions are not the same. In fact, I think "from stem to stern" is closer
to "from top to toe" than to "from soup to nuts", and I see the former two being
a more physical reference.
