I have the same shoe and I sized down a full size, 9.5US to 8.5UK.

Simpson - a narrow last with a chisel toe. Reasonably extended in the toe box, and a reasonably narrow waist. E width.
Alcudia - much like the Simpson, but with more of an Almond Toe. E width.
Robert - A rounded Almond toe, E width. Officially it is the same width as the Simspon, but the extra room at the toe tends to make it more comfortable for wider feet.
Inca - a pointed toe, on our widest last, with a fairly wide waist. The most comfortable last we have for wide and flat feet. EE width.
Rain - Much like the Inca, but with a chisel toe. EE width.
Forest - a popular last in Europe, it is a standard width with a soft round toe, quite low in the instep, so high insteps can feel a little pinched in this last. E width.
Uetam - a new last for us in a loafer, it feels very similar to the Forest, if a shade narrower. E width.
desu

Going off this list, if I have wider feet would the Robert, Inca and Rain be best for me right?
My sizing as follows: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Alden Barrie: 10.5D or 10E, 10D on non boots is a little tight but could be doable, 10D on boots is too tight
Alden Grant: 10D on lwb, a bit tight by toes but good snug fit otherwise
Alden Modified: 10.5D a bit long but good fit otherwise
Alden Trubalance: 10.5D, good fit with slightly thicker socks
Allen Edmonds (5 and 7 lasts): 11D, never tried on wide but decent fit here
C&J 325 (RL Marlows): 10.5D ok fit
Grenson: 10E UK a bit long
Mark McNairy / Sanders: 9.5E UK
Meermin: Hiro last 10UK
Quoddy: 10D, super tight / painful for first few wears but after a while great sockless fit, pinky toes do poke out a bit though
To Boot NY: 11D kinda long
Trickers: 9.5 Fitting 5 UK
Yuketen 10E or 10.5D

Also how about sizing on the simpson for these:

I'm in the market for a briefcase -- does anyone have any experience with the "Ro Bags Small Briefcase" from The Armoury.

 

http://www.thearmourystore.com/bags/ro-bags-small-briefcase

 

Really into the newspaper holder design. Any chance you could post some pictures of the inside and perhaps some higher res images of the stitching? Does anyone own this?

I have the medium. The small one is very small, I wouldn't recommend it.

It's a great bag. I'm shocked by how many people approach me on the street to compliment it. It is well made, but the outer shell scratches easily in my experience.

I wish they did it in Dark Brown, because my Black version sees minimal use, as I rarely wear black shoes.

Any chance of a carmina cordovan boot?

Those bags are beautiful - I also love the newspaper detail.

I prefer dark brown also but what they have is it. I don't think they will order anymore once stock is sold out.

I received my NackyMade specs the other day. It is off to the optometrist shop for lens. Great product.


To the Armoury guys, are you guys able to answer questions about products on the Drakes website? I've tried and tried and have not been successful in getting any response from them.

Looks very similar to the one Michael Hill of Drake's is wearing here (picture taken at MRket, credit to http://guerreisms.com/)
