Will have to think on this, since I wanted to pick up the Pimlico...
The 109 (which is what the Pimlico I think is made on) is a wider fit from my experience, not as wide as the 724 though, keeping the width (F) constant. It's a comfortable fit on a nice classic toe. Thought about the Hunt but might save it for another time since the Cherry Moore is close in color.
Pimlico is one of the most elegant RTW two eye derby out there, and it is that pair that caught my eye and pushed me across the line to start on Alfred Sargent, the first English made shoes I got.
It is on the 109 last, while it's elegant, but it's the most pointy of AS lasts, and AS did the most essential shoes of every men on that last, cap toe oxford, full brogue and derby, I would thought a more standard last like the 99 would suit more feet.
I also have wider feet with high instep, from the photo below, the 109 is wide at the ball of the feet, but really tapers on the outside towards the toes, not so evident on the Hunt and Pimlico, but very obvious on the Armfield, due to the cap toe.
