For me, Aberdeen in 10E is the best fitting last.

Cigar NST on Aberdeen from Alden NYC

974 is on the TREMONT.

I chuckled as I read this. biggrin.gif

But in all seriousness, there is no cross-examination intended (in spite of the lawyer inside me); rather, an honest inquiry. And I rather like the Aberdeen, too.

Happy New Year to one and all. nod[1].gif

Thanks for correcting me. I need 9.5 E for both 974 and 9071 is what I want to say.

Going up a width does take away some of the sleekness of the Tremont last... I find that Grant and Aberdeen have more of a tapered look in E than Tremont, which is a plus for those styles. Nevertheless I still like my whiskey balmoral wingtips in 10E.

9.5E. I can wear 10D in some models (longwings, PTB, chukka) but am uncomfortable in others (captoe boots)

+1 for the Aberdeen. And +1 for people asking and answering questions in this thread politely. It makes it so much more enjoyable to read. Definitely not the case in some of the other few threads I browse. Happy New Year to all.

My Cigar NSTs from Alden DC. I went with 11.5D instead of 11E, since that's what they had in stock.

Can someone reply to my posts so I know they are showing up? I have tried to leave a few posts and it continually tells me they are in moderation. Thanks.

Mac: You have posted before about the Aberdeen last and that you thought it - above all others - was a difficult fitting last (I'm paraphrasing but think I have it right). I'm curious as to why you think this?

nephew,
the narrowness of the toe box i.e. width
