thanks, man. nailing down my size in different makers was such a chore. its a big factor in why i stick with the 2 or 3 makers that i know what size and what last feels right for me. i think id need to do in person try ons with other makers before i would consider branching out. the need is no longer as pressing as it once felt.
I know how you feel. And it's not just the sizing, it's the leathers. I have 10UK Uetams in Suede that fit semi-snug and 10.5 Uetams in Suede that fit semi-loose. I ordered some Uetams in shell, 10UK and am scared shitless they won't fit due to the stiffness of shell vs the forgiving Suede. I've been extremely lucky so far. The only shoes that don't fit the way I'd really like are the 10.5UK Inca lasts. But I'll deal.
I'm extremely lucky my EG's fit like a glove, and so do my Simpsons. Winning on the first try (or only try depending on the situation) is always fantastic.
