thanks gents, yes the colors from left to right are rosewood country calf (64 last), burgundy delapre (202 last), dark oak/brown (82 last), brown delapre (89 last), and chestnut/tobacco (606 last)

the 89 (made for ralph lauren) last fits snuggest with 202 being the loosest. imo from snuggest to loosest

89 last
64 (a little shorter than 82 last)
82
606 (606 and 202 are pretty close)
202 last

comparing 89 last to the 202 last measurements (both e width uk11.5), 89 last is 1/4" shorter in length and narrower at ball

All these brannock to actual EG conversions are making me go nuts. Recently discovered that I am a US 10.5 B on brannock. So, Ideally I should be a 10/10.5 C on EG (US to UK width conversion). However, I had been wearing 9/9.5 D on EG's 82 last before I got my feet properly measured on brannock. Tried 9/9.5 E on 82 and it was loose. So scaling up from my current 82 size to my actual brannock size for the next EG MTO, I should be looking at 10/10.5 B, not 10/10.5 C. But then I see how other people convert their US widths into EG widths. Hmm...

Size up 1/2 a size from your EG size. Don't say I didn't warn you :-)

Ok i'm a bit dense, a bit of a noob, and just want to make sure I get it right.

I wear a 7UK on the 82 last. Does that mean on the Man of the World's website, I should be selecting 7.5 from the drop box?

I think so. Your shoes will say 7/7.5 inside, so the US website will just say 7.5.

Do you have any fit issues with you current E.G.'s. in 9.5D. Do they hurt? How much room is there to spare length wise in the toe box? Does you forefoot not sit correctly in the shoe? Does the widest part of your forefoot fit correctly in the widest part of the shoe? Do you have any heel slippage? Do they crease strangely (say on a cap toe way in front or way behind of the stitches of the cap)? On an Oxford, how much room is the between the laces when they are strapped, do the laces completely close or is there some room to spare?

Ok thanks that's helpful. Now I just need to find some money laying around.

These sizing conversions make absolutely no sense to me. In the US sizes, I wear 8.5. In UK sizes, I wear 7. But if I buy a UK made shoe that has been converted to US sizing, a US size 8 it is too big because that is really size 7.5 in UK. What the hell is that???

Hi, heard from someone that we normally size up while buying boots, just spotted a pair of Galway but with wider width (F vs my normal E width) should I stick with the same side because it has wider width?

Normally a boot will have more room compared to a shoe on the same last. I will keep the same width.

Should have been more clear. If the shoe on the same last is really snug, then you can buy the wider fitting boot provided you wear thick socks. It will still be an iffy though.

I don't agree with this. I tend to find boots tighter in the vamp than shoes in the same size. Some even go out a width to account for this volume difference

Yes to few questions. The boot in my current size start snug but have decent toe room. On the shoes, both my pinky toes push against the leather. Plus on the shoes, there is space between laces as they never close completely.

Strangely enough, I have two boots and 3 shoes in 9.5 D on 82 last that I decided to keep after buying. However two shoes, black Malvern and black Chelsea, were really tight in the store, so much so that my left foot toes were bending. So, I did not buy those two shoes even though the dark oak colored Chelsea was among the 5 already purchased by me. So, same last and size but different experience. Mind you, all my purchases and trials have been in the last 6 months. So all the shoes/boots are on the new resin lasts.
