No experience with the 2003. Was it you who had posted that the 2003 was the same as Church's 73? Cheaney's 2003 and Church's 73 both look
like short round lasts to me, but apparently fit tts when converted a full size US9D = UK8F. As for the 175, I've read that it runs small and it's perhaps best to take only .5 down from your US size, i.e. US9D = UK8.5F. Again, no experience with that last.

Compare for example the Arthur III in an F fitting with a Chetwyn in an F fitting. You could almost size a half-size down in the Arthur.
I have the Arthur III in Dark Brown (Plough?) suede. It's quite roomy in my usual UK8 size, but I don't think I could comfortably size down to a UK7.5 on the 125 last.Edited by Wes Bourne - 9/17/12 at 3:41pm
