Very nice.

I have the malvern in doak, this one is certainly a disctinctly different shoe bc of the color, and is also more interesting (excusing future purchase in my head)

I am still in the semi impulse stage. Not like i was in the beginning but impulse still takes over at times.

I saw that you also started getting into G&G. how did you find their lasts compared to the 202 or the 82. I am sure they are more narrow and tigther instep than the 202, but how about as compared to the EG 82 (if you have any 82 last shoes). I know my EG and crispin size but I dont have anywhere to try G&G so have been reluctant to take plunge

Thanks MD. I was thinking along those lines. Just debating bw going up half size or maybe trying f width. I am at the upper limits of normal probably of instep and forefoot width so sometimes it can be tricky switching companies. Most oxfords I have are probably 1/3 inch gap at laces, which does not really change when i go up 1/2 size bc of the instep. At the end of day i need to just try them. Probably start with a derby as its more forgiving if the size is off a bit.

I take normal E width for EG & G&G & close to being USA D width that's what I take but not fully D. 8.5Uk work very well for EG & Stcrispin & 9Uk for G&G works very well for all last.

I also was very reluctant. However the Thorpe on the MH71 was and is a good place to start, at least for me anyway. I am a US 11 1/2 D and although I find the G&G E MH71 Last more sleek throughout the Last I find 11 E MH71 works for me on both the Thorpe and now the St James. Of course the same Last tends to be more roomy on boots than shoes so trying it on the boot first gave me the confidence and reassurance I needed. G&G Lasts are supposed to be all the same with the exception of the toe box and I found that true with regards to the TG73 vs the MH71 with the TG73 being more snug in the toe box As it is a more chiseled Last. I am a UK 11 E on the following EG Lasts 64, 82, 89, 202, and 888.

I typically review the brands thread on SF and various users experiences as well as requesting fitting guidance from the good folks at Skoak (Gabriel) before trying any ne Last for the first time.

From what you have told me I would say 9UK would work for you.

You are good that's what I take on all my US sizing D
