They're fine now, but 82? Never again.

You might want to give shoes made on the new resin 82 lasts a try. They feel overall slightly but noticeably wider than shoes made on the old wooden 82 last, at least this is so with my latest pair of E.G.'s They are noticeably roomier than my shoes on other lasts in the same size (888, 202, 606), but not so much as to justify sizing down a size in width.

Between Moosic and TTown there's probably been more shoe purchases than I've ever seen.

But the best part is that they are all beautiful!!!

No wrong choice there.  I haven't exposed my Utah Galways to any rough weather yet, but if I had to guess I'd give a slight edge to CC on the durability front.

EG Camden on 82 fits perfectly however!

 

I've never tried Dovers in any last. I'd like to, though. Maybe next time I'm in London. The 202 last might be the thing.

I have Chelseas on the 82 and they've been comfortable since day 1. The brogues, though, (Malvern and Plymouth) are the ones that gave me trouble. The Plymouths have broken in and are quite comfortable. And I'll stick with the Malverns for a little bit longer.

When was the cut-over?

 

I thought I had EG sizing down. but I just bought a pair of Berkeleys in my size on the 202 last from Skoak's EG fire sale and my feet swim in them. And yet my other 202s fit really well. And today I should receive a pair of EGs on the 890 last that I picked up in Left's sale. And, honestly, this is a true roll of the dice. I've never tried the 890. So they may also be coming to an eBay auction near you sometime soon!

The berkeleys on skoak site were F (wide) width which may acct for how big they feel

Question for you gents. I have a pair of Galway's on the 64 last. They fit perfectly with a pair of thin dress socks. If I were to buy a pair of Galway's on the 82 for wear with thicker socks...Should I go up a half size?

 

Thank you all in advance.

That sounds like the opposite of what is "normally" done, but if the 64 Galway fits well with a thin sock you might want to go up a width on the 82. I would not adjust the length.
