CJ 337 8.5E (perfect)
CJ 348 8.5E in Hallam (quite snug but doable) 9E in Lowndes (slightly loose, but 8.5E is way too tight)
I'm looking to step up my game - I got smart about 18 months ago when I started lurking on this site. I moved up from poorly construsted and ugly black square toed shoes to a collection of 5 Allen Edmonds that I rotate. I think I'm ready for the next step but the sizing difference is terrifying. With AE, I was able to try them on a local store but that's about as far as I can go in this town. My size is 9EEE in AE and that still leaves a pretty significant V on the 5 last. Does anyone have any idea what they best way to approach my first Carmina purchase? I'm thinking that I'm certainly going to purchase something on the rain last because that's the widest but maybe I should size up a 1/2 size.
