If I'm a 10E UK in MH71, 9.5 UK in 363MOD and 804, 10UK in 74945, and 9 UK in Rain - would you say a 9.5F, 9.5G or 10F would work best?
I take 8.5uk in every thing all last and 8uk on 804 last. My guess would be, you are 9.5uk F saint crispin is not verynarrowlike gg.

Go try on some pairs, and if you think a personal last is the way to go make a mental note of the fitting points you'd want adjusted. Then go to your preferred retailer to get a good deal on some Saint Crispin's! 



if you get fitted at the armoury, it would be good to place the order at the armoury.

If you can find it substantially less expensive elsewhere, then I recommend doing so.

then don't get fitted at the armoury smile.gif they invest a lot to have all the fitters models and their time. That has some value, that gets factored into the cost, right?

Yes, if they went to the trouble of fitting me correctly that at the very least deserves a sale.

Sure I certainly agree there's a cost involved with being able to try on etc, but when you can find the same thing for  at least 25% less elsewhere it's hard to go with the significantly more expensive retailer.

If they have the shoe in stock, it would be best to buy it from the armoury. If it needs to be special ordered, then fair game.

This I agree with. I needed a personal last and found a deal that was too good to pass up.

Getting someone to service you, then going elsewhere, seems like a real dick move.

Completely agree.  I'm more than happy to pay a premium if someone is going to go through the effort to have the trail pairs and go through the work to size me correctly.

Agreed, don't be a dick.
Don't go to a certain store, get fitted and buy from somewhere else. A retail store like The Armoury is not a showroom operated by the manufacturer and should not be treated like it is.

If you are looking for the best possible price, just purchase a couple of different sizes online and keep the size that fits (obviously returning the pair that doesn't fit as well).

I'm happy with my extra $600 in my pocket. If that makes me a dick then so be it.
