If you have established your shoe size already in any number of the other decent brands you should be able to get sizing recommendations here from forum members or even from the vendor you decide to purchase your shoes from. At times having the ability to return an item for cash or in store credit might not be a bad thing especially when buying a specific Last for the first time. This method has worked for a good majority of the people who frequent this board. We all had to start somewhere and it's not always possible to try them on before making a purchase.  Brooks Brothers however is great if you need that secure feeling of trying it on prior to purchase. Keep in mind however that their selection is limited and you might be able to find a better deal if you are willing to order from the internet. I would highly recommend Skoaktiebolaget and I think you should at least take a look at what they have and their prices before making a decision.


Good Luck!!!!

Went to sky valet tonight to look at their remaining selection of EG's and I was able to try on an 8.5UK in the 888 last but was unable to walk for fear of breaking the toe box. The owner indicated that a 9 UK would be perfect. I did buy a pair of C&J Westbourne Brogue Cap toes in an 8UK on the 348 last. Does the 9UK sound accurate in EG compared to 8UK in C&J? The owner indicated that EG runs small.

I neither have a cordovan boot nor a Galway but this sounds like a killer deal for around 1500 usd. Plus trees I presume

If this materializes this certainly would be one heck of great way of killing those two birds with one stone.

I wear 9.5UK in the C&J 348 last and 9.5UK/10US in EG888, but the EG is the snuggest possible fit and the 348 is a very good fit with a touch of room (but not so much room I could size down to 9).  A half size bigger in the 888 than the 348 is quite normal I understand.  A full size suggests the last might not be right for your foot and that going up a full size so it's big enough in the toe box will make it too wide or too big in the heel.  I'd definitely try before you buy unless you can return or exchange without a hassle.

Great info, thanks. I have one other place to try on a 9 in the 888. Is there an EG last that's larger in the toe box than the 888?

Maybe the 606? Interested in what others think.
post #7134 of 14886
^agree. 606 and 888 toe are similar widths however the 606 toe might be EGs most voluminous (second to 64)

I wear C&J in 8.5 and EG in 9 across many different lasts for each maker.

I'd definitely be in for a shell Galway, looking forward to hearing more.

My wallet trembles in fear as I concur. I'd be interested in seeing how such a makeup would turn out
