As far as the width question, I stand by my observation. I wear an 11 D in Allen Edmonds. I wear an 11D in Alden. I wear an 11D in Edward Green. I dont come EVEN CLOSE to fitting into a C width in any shoes. Therefore, to me at least, logic would assert that EG D width is a US D width. Additionally, and I might be wrong about this, but I am pretty sure a D is a D is a D. Its only the numbers that dont translate exactly. Bengal-stripe et al are more qualified than myself to speak about that specifically though.
