    Greetings,

    I purchased and 11.5 EX (UK) and they fit well in the length but are wide. EX was said to be on the narrower side. I usually wear a 12D US which usually fit me very well. The 11.5E (UK) fits more like a 12E US.

    Does anyone have any insight on the brand's fit?

    I'm an avg US10.5D, & I find the AS 9.5F (their default) pretty comparable on the 87 last.

    It depends on the shoe. Though the only two pairs I have tried have been wide.

    I have the 70 last and it appears to be an entire width wider. I also have another shoe in the same last and it's wide also.

    I have numerous AS shoes and their widths vary so "wide" is a relative term. When you say "usually" a 12D, what brand/last are you referring to? Also, what shoe from AS did you purchase? Did you get one from their country line? Are they lace-ups or loafers?

    The 70 last appears to be used of loafers, is this what you have? I have the AS 99, 106, 89, 109, and 48, all F.
