The storm welter and crup egs fit wider
post #27872 of 28896

Thank you all for the help!  I'll reach out to Sid Mashburn and see if they have any F widths I can try on.  Already tried the Georgetown Brooks Brothers and, when I went in, they only had D widths, which were far too narrow.  If Sid Mashburn doesn't have any, I'll reach out to EG and then roll the dice on a pair!  Borghini seems to have quite a few F widths in 10, so it would open up my selection quite a bit beyond a black captoe (which seems to be the only RTW option for G widths).  Then it becomes a question of the practicality of getting the black captoe or the some of the beautiful colors I've been seeing on the Galways and others!

Are you absolutely sure about Brooks Brothers having D widths? I thought they only carry Es...

I know you are new to this, but I would like confirmation on Brooks Brothers' stock please.

I'll check this afternoon to make sure.  I thought it was strange at the time, but it may have also been that the sales associate who was assisting me let me know that we was only helping with shoes because they were busy that day and that he had no familiarity with their offerings, nor where the stock was located.  The only thing he could find after looking in the back in a 10UK was a pair of Harrogates in D width, but suggested the NW store might have had some E's (they had recommended going to the Georgetown store when I called, since they didn't have anything in stock at the time).

Monk strap question for you gentlemen.  I have a pair of Westminster's E888 last, and while putting them on, I noticed that the 2nd to last hole on the buckle was a bit too loose (heel slippage) and I can't tighten them to the last hole.  So, I'm in between the first & second hole on the buckle...

 

Is punching an extra hole an option?  Or any advice?  The width/length feels fine, so I don't think its a sizing issue.

I'm a 9G in EG and have some experience in exploring the options on where to get wider sizes that is hopefully helpful.

If you order from EG directly, there are a number of options for F width you can try as well as the Chelsea in G width on the 202. EG has free shipping and free returns, so you're safe if it doesn't work out. Short of going to a trunk show, that's going to be a good place to start, as well as Borghini (though I don't know their return policy). I'd recommend trying out the G width in a half size down before you make any decisions. While the 202 is more accommodating than other lasts, it's still a pretty good indicator for your size in other lasts.

Hey guys, did you notice that some Edward Green models are marked down at Brooks Brothers?

And it comes with trees!

Out of curiousity, noticed that EG's online presence is lacking compared to JL, CJ and the rest. Just wondering why? I mean their FB is non existent except for Instagram/twitter. The last youtube video was like 6 years ago. I kinda expected EG would be more socially involved and evolved. Would be nice to see an updated video of their factory, some interviews etc. or even some tips/advice

Possibly they are too busy making shoes.... the wait for a MTO seems to now be 8-10 months.

Hm. This has not been my experience. Not one of my 7 this year took longer than 90 days.
