There's no such thing as a rational shoe guy.

Good morning, I was hoping that some of the resident experts here might help me with a fit question.  I'm looking to get my first pair of EGs (probably a 202 or 82 Chelsea in black to start) but I wasn't sure on the sizing and, sadly, there are exceedingly few places in the DC area that carry EG, and none that carry wider sizes.  I've got a pair of G&G Wigmores on the TG73 last in UK10.5G, which are a bit longer than necessary, but worked width-wise.  I also have Carminas in UK10G that are less snug and right at the correct length.  I figure I should stick with the UK10 for length, but my question is, will I need to get a G width or can I get away with an F on either the 82 or 202 lasts? I'd read both on here and the G&G thread that the TG73 can run more narrow, especially compared to the 202, so I wasn't sure.  Thank you!

EG G width is available only MTO, never heard of a retailer that stock it and it's very hard to find used or on ebay
so unfortunately you are almost obliged to try F width before and it would be a good start.

Ime EG F isn't so wide but depends on last/pattern.
post #27869 of 28896
EG's G width is supposed too be quite wide, and I believe they may limit G width production to the 202 and maybe a couple other lasts only.

I would call Sid Mashburn in Georgetown to see if they have an F in something to try. If not, email EG directly for sizing advice. You may want to try Brooks Brothers in Georgetown to confirm the E is a non-starter also. If you are able to determine what size works in advance, search for stockists in Europe (specifically Italy) that carry F and G widths- sometimes they have them on sale. Best of luck on the search for your first Edward Green shoe in a wide fitting.

Borghini Classic stocks a number of EG in F width and they are on sale now.
