Medwards, you can't mean that for equivalent letters (e.g., an E-fitting in a C&J vs. an E-fitting in an EG) that the EG would be snugger, can you? If, in fact, EG fittings are closer to US widths than are other British makers', EGs (for a given letter) should be less
snug, shouldn't they? That is to say, an EG E-fitting should be a little looser
than a C&J E-fitting. This woulld seem to follow from the information that, in general (and including C&J here), a UK E-fitting corresponds to a US D-width, whereas an EG E-fitting might correspond more to a US E-width. In such a case, the C&J (say) should be the wider shoe, shouldn't it? Or do I have this wrong?
