    I have three Aurum and 2 Argentines. Both are excellent. However the difference is like comparing business class and first class on airplane. Business is class is better than most and it is all you think you need however when you make the jump to first class you noticed that there is a difference more than you ever though. Some pic below

    How has upsizing work out for you? I’m 9E in chisel 2, have a 9F in soft square, always a bit hesistate upsizing (afraid while solving the width issue end up too long)

    So I'm on the longer side of Brannock 9.5. I've tried two pairs of AM in 9.5UK. The first pair was black oxfords in the Aeris round last, which I felt had a bit too much volume. Unfortunately when I exchanged for a 9UK, after break-in, it was borderline not wide enough for the ball of my wider foot and I eventually understood that the length was not ideal.

    This pair of lazyman is in the Aeris square last which felt like it had a bit less volume than the Aeris round last, but maybe that's just the elastic from the lazyman. It was definitely a good idea to size up to 9.5UK. Meccariello shoes all seem to run short (more fitted I guess?) so I'm comfortable sizing up, especially with my Asian feet...

    Do you usually take 8UK or 8.5UK in most brands? Have you tried Zonkey Boots? I find them incredibly comfortable.

    I’m mostly 8.5 UK (CJ/JL/Church/Carmine, EG and GG are 9UK) though i’m also close to the wider side, for example the only GG that works is MH71, DG70 and TG73 were both too tight in toe box

    Recently got a pair Titanus RTW from Medallion - just to see how the special line is like in terms of make and finishing. Hopefully will arrive in time for Christmas.

    (For the normal Argentum-welted line, the other retailers include FineShoes HK, Yeossal in SG and The Sabot in Sweden)

    And here comes the bad news for many: during the email communication with Medallion, they told me that if I wanted an MTO pair, the new wait time is...

    7 months

    ...and that's part of the reason I chose their RTW instead.
    Honestly, I think Medallion are solely responsible for the updated MTO wait time :cheers:
