Isaia makes wonderful suits. The bang for your buck is amazing considering kiton will run you considerably more.
Berkleys look great too.

That would be around 10 weeks.

I finally decided on the Bolet Adelaide, I'm not quite ready for G&G shoes yet (student), but those EB Adelaides looks so much alike G&G St James II which are one of my absolute favorite styles!

 

Can't wait!

Good day, all. I am excited about the Edward Green Kentmere boot arriving in late November. For those of you that may have had experience with Edward Green sizing, how do you usually size? I have a low-volume, narrow foot (11C in Alden Barrie, 10.5 in Viberg 2030, 11C in Alden TruBalance- but I should probably be an 11B in that wider last) and I often put inserts into my boots to snug them up.

 

I haven't been able to find much information on the Kentmere's 72 last. Given that I'll probably have to modify the fit a little to compensate for width, which size might be best lengthwise? UK10? 10.5? I'd rather they be snug than sloppy.

First order arrived today from Skoak, and I'm ecstatic. I got the FedEx notification and actually stayed at work for an extra 90 minutes; it was worth it. Thanks, gents!

And down the slippery slope you go (speaking from experience). Good idea to just send it to work. I actually drove back home during lunch the other day to get my shoes

My first and still biggest love affair with luxury goods ... ISAIA suits. I dont really see the point in forking over more for Kiton. I like the suit cuts better on ISAIA, trimmer fits, smaller lapels without being over the top "modern"( i have not explored the different fits of Kiton). The modified/MTM gregory body on ISAIA is pretty much perfection as far as I am concerned. Cant see myself ever changing to any other company for suits.

Last thing my (and i am sure most other people on this forum) bank acct needs is MTM suits just a short email encounter with Gabriel away

Congrats, and I look forward to your pictures.

 

 

The Adelaide has slowly become one of my favorite style of shoes.

I don't have any experience with EG lasts, but from my research it's similar to the 82 last. I've been recommended to go with my 2030/trubalance sizing (i'm the same size in both) for the 72 last. So for me, I would go with an 8.5UK since I'm an 8.5 in 2030/trubalance. Since you have a narrow foot, perhaps a 10.5UK would work.
