Many thanks for your thoughts,
(However it is made on 363 last not 337)
So you wear the same size in cavendish and vincent and you suggest to take the same size?
Do you have some comparision pictures?
Thanks in advance
EG G width is available only MTO, never heard of a retailer that stock it and it's very hard to find used or on ebayso unfortunately you are almost obliged to try F width before and it would be a good start.Ime EG F isn't so wide but depends on last/pattern.
I've tried marlow in both d and e width (and other close friend us EE too)
D width is surely narrower than uk e.
E width is very similar to uk e, maybe a touch wider.
My experience is one full size down too, ex. Us9/uk8
I perfectly understand your disappointment but imho returning a pair of shoes only because they're slightly creased, the same creases you will get at the first wear is a waste of time and money.Better to ask for a discount or a gift (free shoetrees ?)
You are comparing a brand who make one/two pair of shoes from an hide, with a brand which use even the last millimeter of those expensive leather.
Obviusly JL select the denser and better part of the hide for his vamps, with Meermin is only a matter of luck, some pair can be perfect, others very poor.
Anyway the creases on your Meermin are perfectly acceptable.
