    Forest does not look very similar to any EG lasts in my opinion. But if I had to chose I'd say a mix of 202 and the 82. Or do you mean in regards of fit?

    You should be ashamed of yourself being a big-footed man and all. This is why I can't endorse you guys but I'm sure there will be many pantyfoots to drive your sales. Hope you understand or HYU.

    First of all I have not been ashamed of myself since I was a wee teen boy and had to go shopping with my mom. :D Second, I got these for you, you're a UK 12.5 in EG right?

    [​IMG]

    For all you big footed lads out there, we have more size UK 12, UK 11.5 and even a few UK 13 in EG. Anyone who carries 11.5 and up will get a 10% discount on EG. Big Feet FTW! :nodding:

    Maybe we should start our own "Big Feet Thread - info and were to buy" -thread on where to get large sizes.

    For all of you interested in Edward Green Galway boots with shearling lining, we just received word from the factory that these can only be produced on the 64 last. So, for shearling lining, no 82 last for example. We have asked for more info on how the 64 fits, perhaps someone here can offer some information as well?

    I take a UK12E & have or have had all of those. Those loafers up there are Carmina in shell?

    Thanks

    Could anyone please elaborate on EG sizes in comparison with Carmina Robert or C&J 348? Both fit me nice and I'd probably be interested in Galways MTO if I knew my size. Don't have an opportunity to try EGs on.

    Leaves, dont mean to hijack this thread, but since I know you're into ties as well
    I though I'd post a public question in case others also have some suggestions or have the same question as me.

    Where's the best place to buy ties in Stockholm?

    really appreciate any help since Im completely clueless

    I wear size 8.5 UK in Carmina Robert and C&J 348. I wear a size 9 D UK for EG. Generally I have found - size down half a size from US to UK for EG, and a full size down from US to UK for Carmina and C&J. Perhaps others can chime in as well.

    Leaves,

    I think you might find that there are quite a few members who have feet that are actually the size of a a foot and take 12UK.

    They may only stock a few in 12, but I always see the Carmina website and the Armory sell out of the 12's.

    If you feel that it is too much of a risk to stock 12's, maybe you can let us know when you are ordering something or restocking and we can let you know our interest.

    Just a thought that may help some extra sales.

    Thank you! Is D a normal or a narrow width in EG? I wear 7.5 UK in normal E width.
    A bit afraid of making a blind order as I already have a couple of ASs in 7.5 and 8 neither of which actually fit [​IMG]

    I bought two pair from the good folks at teh Armoury based strictly on pictures and their comparisons to EG sizing. EG's fit me perfectly, the Carminas-almost so.

    For the gent who inquired above re the reverse fit translation I wear a 12/12.5E in EG and took a 12 in Carmina. I have the Alcudia and Simpson lasts which fit nicely. The Alcudia much more so.
