    How do Corthay's fit? I would not mind ordering some, but I am afraid I have no access to a retailer [​IMG]
    looks like you need a weekend trip to NYC to visit leftfot, i dont own any, but i have tried them and they are pretty ture to size, but YMMV


    Sorry to interject here (I've been lurking on Styleforum for years, but post at AAAC), but I just wanted to point out that Corthay's on the 001 last at least are quite narrow in my experience. I wear a 12D (US) Allen Edmond and Alden in all lasts that I've tried, an 11E (UK) John Lobb in the 7000 last, and an 11.5E (UK) G&G in the DG70 last, but I had to go to a size 13 (US) for the Corthay Vendome and even then it's a very tight fit. I would highly recommend trying on some pairs in person before buying because it was a costly learning experience on my part. [​IMG]

    I absolutely love the 2 eyelet Corthay derby's. Do they do that in a chukka boot?

    They make a three eyelet chukka. Check under Collections --> Oedipe --> Model 9 for pictures at Corthay's website: http://www.corthay.fr/corthay_en.html (Unfortunately, the site uses flash, so you can't link directly to the page for the boot.)

    The Corthays are really narrow. Not sure if they come in width but fwiw their RTW only come in a standard width.
    I have a pair of C width Modified last Alden that fits fine, UK7.5E in EG 82, UK7E in Lobbs and UK7.5E in G&Gs.
    The Corthay Arcas I own is far more narrower than those.
