Thanks everyone for the kind words.
Leather Soul claims that EG E width is equivalent to a US D, however, I know other US EG retailers order their EG shoes in D width. I think their D width is closer to the "normal" American width. What are other people's thoughts and experiences on this? I know D fits me better, but E still works.
Additionally, I've heard EG is really busy lately and MTO times are up to 8-9 months right now.
There might be some truth to Leather Soul's comment as well as your statement about the D width. The Falkirks that I picked up via Saks are "D" width on the 82 last. They fit my feet fine.
I think the general consensus is that the UK E width corresponds to the US D width.
For what its worth, when I dropped into Bel Y Cia in Barcelona last week, the sales associate was quite proud of the fact that all models were available in the wider F width - I'm assuming that was because E is the standard.
