Guess I was wearing a wrongly sized Edward Greens all the time or the new resin last is a game changer.
To cut the story short, my John Lobb and Crockett Jones size is a UK 9 E. I bought a pair of Chelsea in UK 9.5 E some time ago but they always felt kinda loose at heels.
After reading @MrVenneri
post about his resin last experience, I decided to pull the trigger on a 82 F fit Chelsea last in size UK 9. And WHOA, what a hit. They feel like a bespoke pair and far more comfortable than Lobbs or Crocketts.
The quality and leather of these is unbelievable. I guess it's the most versatile style you can get.
So, from my experience these are an amazingly fitting US 10 D.
Now, being the moron I am sometimes I may sell these and buy the same pair on 202 last as I am obsessed with the rounded toe though my friends are saying the 82 is far more handsome than the blobby 202.
A quick dirty room photo.
P.S Now selling these to finance my 202 Chelsea. LoL. These are coming with Original Lasted EG trees. Check the BUY&SELL Section.
Glad I could provide some assistance. I'm saddened you prefer the 202 over the 82 in oxfords. I like the 202 on a boot...but it's not on the list of favorites from EG. But hey - to each their own! I'm glad you found what YOU like.
Just to shed some more light on this whole resin last/sizing debacle...
I am a US 10 via the brannock in both length and instep and a C/D in width.
I wear a UK8.5E in all EG lasts except the EG64 which is noticeably more short and squat compare to the others. In that last I have to wear a UK9E. Below is a picture of my foot along side a Galway on the 82 last.
Note that this particular pair is a UK8E!! I needed JUST A BIT more length but otherwise this fit was perfect from waist to heel.
