Church's shoe question
Very sloppy handwriting from Church shoe nowadays....Looks as if the worker had a hang-over.
Anyway, it says 90G100.
This mean a size UK 9 in a G fitting (Wide) on the 100 Last.
Okay sorry I take that back. You are a magician. I've seen photos of your repairs. I'm not sure how you manage to recraft a shoe better than the makers who have the original last, but if I ever need a shoe taken care of properly, it's going to you.
It's UK size 10 in "F" fitting on last 73. Can't make out the word stating the model but the shoe itself looks like Chetwynd. It's a very old pair as evidenced by the half linen / half leather lining. Last 73 has long been replaced by last 100 which in turn was replaced by last 173. My understanding is that you can still get them made with their MTO programme.
