My understanding is that the 64 is a boot specific last. It seems slightly wider than the 202 and a bit shorter.....

This I what I understood from Alex from E.G. Paris: if you go up in width, example given: from E to F then the F with has the same width as an E in half a length longer. A few examples to illustrate:
- A UK11E has the same width as a UK10 ½ F
- A UK11D has the same width as a UK10 ½ E

For what it is worth, I have also come across E.G. shoes on eBay in the C-width (marked as such) and also lots in the D, E an F widths.

Hmm I am confused so what is different? Say UK11E and UK10.5F are the same width, what about their length? Which one is longer?

11E would be longer, same width

Edward Green Twill and Calf

Some say suede is more formal and some say twill is.  Both are done well by EG.

I'd have to agree with this.

 

Both wingtips look great, but in this case my preference would be the pair in blue.

 

But that's probably because I already have a few spectators in brown already.

 

Are there any advantages or disadvantages to twill versus suede, or is it strictly a matter aesthetics?

I just received a lovely pair of Chelsea in Dark Oak from Edwards of Manchester. However, on the box, it's labelled as "Chelsea.N". Is the additional ".N" meaningful?

Don't know but my pair has the same labelling on the box

For those that send shoes back for recraft, do they return them in the same way you sent them (e.g., sent in a bag, returned in a bag) or they return them in a box with the polishing mat (I assume shoe bags aren't given for recrafts)?

The pair I sent them were returned in a plain dark green box w/ EG label listing shoe info, along with bags and a polishing mat: http://www.styleforum.net/t/180142/edward-green-recrafting-on-permanent-style/50_50#post_3324903

Thanks for the post Wes (haven't seen you on lately)! I'm really impressed with the work on the uppers and that they replaced the insole. Looking at the post it was about 3 years ago, did you specify that you wanted X, Y, & Z done in addition to the H/A/F sole replacement?
post #3582 of 10278
The note I included asked for a full recraft with HAF soles, sunken metal toe taps and new insoles.

If I'm not mistaken, unless you specifically ask for new insoles, they'll only replace the sock liners. And SF member Imakeyourshoes confirmed that EG replace the welt at each recraft, contrary to the popular belief that most/all English shoemakers attach new soles to the original welt and only change it after a few resoles and/or when absolutely necessary.

Quite a few years back (maybe the mid-90s), EG changed the basic pattern of their Oxfords i.e. "Chelsea", "Berkeley", "Cadogan", "Malvern". The revised design has a longer toe cap, a higher vamp point and the top line comes up higher on the instep (the new design shows less sock). The throat in the new design is more curved, the old design was more angular.

It is possible the 'N' indicates the "new" design. Maybe (just a guess on my part) Japanese buyers want to order the "old" design, just as they want the "Dover" on the 32 last, which had to come out of retirement.

This is corrrect, and what the guys at the main shop told me. So I normally wear a 9.5D. But on the longer, chisel-toed, 888 last, I can wear a 9E, because it is the same width as a 9.5D, and that particular last is long enough for me - a 202 would not be and an 82 would pinch too much on my toes.

EG have made C widths. And even B. I have a pair of each, bought on sale, that happen to fit fine (though the Bs took a little careful breaking in).

Shoe sizing is weird. My last two pairs of non-EG shoes are both 8.5Es, from two different manufacturers, and fit fine - indeed they are roomier around the toes than my EGs one size "larger".
