I've also had the same suspect when I bought the penny in 9D, very very narrow to be UK E.Maybe they use modified last in width?Considering that in some markets, these shoes are available also in US E and EE width.
I think they are of same standard.Probably big stores with high volume could have better price from factories for their rebranded shoes.Fox example Shipton & Heneage is actually selling rebranded C&J shoes for 259 £

The repositioning of the brand it's a great news.I am still a fan of the Michelangelo products, I have been wearing for many years eidos, michelangelo and correale sport coats, and they are among my favourites, amazing feeling and value for money.Can't wait to see the new collections and the increased quality and details.
