Well, Bridgens didn't work out but I just scored these - same last in a G width - with the refund: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&shoeid=5251&colourid=2751&brandid=6 My first pair of Chelseas, but I'm surprised at how much I like them. Went with my regular size and the fit is terrific. Got them in suede, so I can't comment on the leather quality of the calf versions. I think they will be deep in the regular rotation once the fall rolls around As noted...
Another alternative on the same last is the Chelsea, but with options of two widths: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&shoeid=5251&colourid=2751&brandid=6 I recently bought them in suede, so can't comment on the leather but it's a great looking shoe. Herring's service was impressive - I had them on the US west coast in just over a week.
Hi, Can you shoot me the outsole measurements ion these when you get a chance? Thanks in advance, Tom
Sorry - got slammed with work and forgot to follow up… Bridgens was great. Got in touch directly and volunteered to cover all shipping costs etc. - was $60 to ship from West Coast to UK!
Bridgens Update - bad news, boys… they arrived in an F fitting. I wrote and they have apologized saying that they assumed that they were a G "for years" due to the wider fit but alas…no Gs in the house. FWIW, they are a beautiful tobacco color - not the dark "mink" brown of my other pair. They are wider than normal, but not what my other pair are like. I would't use an insole with these so volume is lower. I will have to determine what a stretcher might be able to do and...
Lovely bottle green sports coat by Luciano Barbera Sartoriale. Versatile bottle green color makes a great alternative to a navy blazer. Soft shoulders, three patch pockets, rolling 3/2 button stance, sewn on cuff buttons for easy adjustment, double vents, year round fabric weight in a very fine hopsack weave. No size on tag, but measurements fit a 42 or maybe a very slim 44: Shoulders 19" BOC 32" Sleeves 24.5" (+1" underneath) $80 shipped CONUS
The only basis for comparison I can offer here is my NB size and that I take a 9.5/G in the Kemptons…based on that, a 10 sounds like the call here…but you are in the unique hell of buying previously unsized shoes over the interwebz, so… Sorry I can't be of more help. I think I may have mentioned it earlier in the thread, but Pediwear has a helpful guide to sizing Loake lasts. It recommends that you go down a full size from your standard size on the 026 due to the width...
Just listed a pair of BNIB chocolate suede semi-brouges in a G fitting: http://www.styleforum.net/t/387923/bnib-loake-wide-fitting-chocolate-suede-wide-fit
Brand new in box, unworn (stickers still on unmarked soles) lovely chocolate suede Earlham semi-brouge from Loake. These are a UK 9.5/ G fitting, which translates to a US 10.5/EEE. Goodyear welted with a nice brogue pattern on the cap toe, leather sole and rubber heel. These are from 1880 line (Loake's best) and were private labeled for Charles Trywhitt. Outsole measurements: Length: 12" Width; 4.25" Received as a gift, but I already have a pair of C&Js that is too...
BTW - just saw the reference in your post - I wear New Balance 11/4Es in running shoes if that helps.
