2102B: 7.5F (a tad long and high in instep, good ball width) / 7G (probably the better choice)
Carmina Oscar: 7.5F (smidge long, great ball/heel/waist width)

GG MG71: 7F (perfection!)
EG 82/202: 7.5E

Measure: 8E (US)

@ecwy

Yes, 2012B is wider, longer, and higher instep...by about a quarter size if you keep the same width.

I'm confident the rain 8.5UK will fit you really well. I'm usually a U.S. 8 wide and the rain 7UK fits really well. The only slight complaint I have is that I can feel the tiniest bit of heel slip, though I think that may be from the shoe trees being a little long causing the shoe to stretch.

gents, do any of you notice a difference in fit between a oxford and derby on the same last? I'm thinking that one might experience the oxfords as potentially tighter across the top of the foot. I'm interested in people's experience with the Simpson last.

I have Simpson in derbies, monks and oxfords, and in suede as well as calf. Monks and derbies may fit just a touch looser in the instep yes, but I never have felt the need to size down for that.

 

I do however, size down for simpson loafers. I have one in calf, and one in suede. One must be pretty careful before sizing down for simpson as the instep isn't particularly generous. Sizing down half for the calf simpson loafer causes immeasurable pain, and I have a pretty high tolerance for pain.

Oxfords fit tighter while derbies fit much looser around the instep.

I have a pair of boots on the 773, and I too am interested in the 2102B for future MTO ideas. Unfortunately that's my first EB and I can only compare it to the Rain last. It's very similar in instep, width and length. Almost identical in fact, with exception on the way it's chiseled. The heel of the 773 has a tiny more room than the Rain, I can see it being negligible for some though.

Skoak, do you have any pics of the EB LWB? Doesn't need to be in the upcoming #4, I'm interested in the shape.

Would love to see some as well.  I put in an MTO for a black shell Enzo LWB back in april, and the suspense is killing me! :)

I notice a touch more tightness on my rain oxfords than derbies. I have one Simpson derby and was thinking of trying an Oxford configuration but was worried that this might be too tight on instep. Derby fits great so a touch more tightness would be ok.

2nd and final pair of my Enzo Bonafé Jan MTOs - Enzo Bonafé 3751 MOD.

 

Specs: Derby boot Buffalo leather uppers, Hidro Sand shaft, Chained Norvegese construction, Dainite soles,946 last, G width, 

 

On hindsight, I would probably have chosen a darker suede but the Buffalo leather is awesome.

Hey guys,

Seems like there is quite a bit of interest in EB now so I'd thought I'd give this MTO idea a shot.

 

 

Have always found this single monk design pretty sweet. 

Looking to get this done with contrasting uppers, dark brown museum calf below and possibly dark brown deerskin above (buckle area). There is no upcharge for deerskin though I am sorry to say I don't have any pictures of it.

946 Last

Single leather soles.
