    Gorgeous shoe. Congrats! What’s that color? Dabondo red?

    On this occasion, I may share mine on Hawksbill from Sabot.

    I’m both 8F (EE) in JL and EG. Size guidance was given by both yessoal and AM, I was not in a position to contradict them until now. So much for that. Both informed of JL and EG sizing.
    They are, IMO, not remotely close to a wide fitting.

    Hm, not many people wear the same size for EG and JL... tough feet to size

    If you’re true wide soft square will probably not work even in F (I wear 9E in chisel 2 and 9F in soft square, and i’m 9E in GG MH71, TG73/DG70 in 9E is too tight, not wearable, JL I only tried on 8.5E in 7000? rubs the toe a bit but would probably work)

    I have the Inverness on the 888 in a F, no issue. Same for Westministers on the 888 F.
    Don’t particularly care for chiselled toe, only jumped on the AM GMTO to try his shoes. I like to see what’s out there, I’ve had worse experiences. It is what it is.

    What a pity, the lazy man is really a sweet pair of shoes. I am size 9.5 - 10E UK but couldn't fit into a soft square last in 10E. Went through Yeossal to order 10.5E for the Conicen. Glad I didn't choose the 10EE option offered.

    Upon review, think I could squeeze into a 8F oxford. Lazyman was not a good ‘first’ option - bound laces equates to a loafer, only really had loafer success with bespoke or, sadly, a 8G Gucci loafer.

    I must say, construction of the AM lazyman was beautiful, really beautiful. I will try again.

    Yes, please do, it would be a waste to sell it after all the waiting and it's such a handsome pair of shoes. I have an advantage because I managed to try the 10E in soft square and the instep + heel felt really tight. Still waiting for my 10.5E Conicen coming in only in Nov.

    I also went ahead and try the a chisel 2 in 10E which fits like a glove. The different lasts really makes a huge difference.

    The lazy mans have been moved on, just too small. I recognise the size may be fine in a traditional oxford.

    Must say, Yessol have been a pretty poor representative of the brand. My support questions were completely ignored.

    On the contrary, I felt he was very accommodating to my needs and queries. There are certain risks one have to take when ordering online I guess. Now that you know your size... you will do better should you decide to try AM again. Don't think it will be difficult to offload the lazyman though. Good luck.
