Well how about everyone else?
I haven't tried Chisel 2 yet. But I've checked AM's suggested size based on my ABC measurements and have a pair in the works (probably for the fall due to the summer vacation and, more importantly, the fact that I'm no @clee1982).

That said, I'm still game if Chisel 2 is the only way to go. Otherwise, very happy with Hawksbill or Soft Square.

Soft square is my best fit - That said do we have any idea what kind of numbers we need to get to and do we need the same model or just the same leather?

definitely same last, 2 leather seem possible, but the oxblood is more limited, officially it’s 12 again, but might be flexible on that

How do you size on soft square compared to the other lasts?

My TTS is probably closest to a 9.25/10.25 with a lower instep and normal arch so soft square works best. Theoretically I could also do a modified chisel 2.

So you take 9.5uk? Is soft square the shorter last?

Yes - Soft square runs about 1/4 size smaller than the other lasts according to most guys and AM. I believe (someone correct me if I’m wrong) that it also has the lowest instep but I wouldn’t describe it as low just lower.

Hmm... I might be able to finagle my tts (9uk) on that last.

Disclaimer on using my fit reference: My sizing is all over the map and super weird. On the edge of narrow, low volume, low instep, normal arch, bony, curved feet. Like I take the same size in Carmina Simpson/CJ/EG/AM type weird. Best fits - Simpson in 9.5, EG 82 9.5, AM Soft Square 9.5 (instep just barely too high), CJ348 9.5, Yeossal SG65 9 instep reduced.

We sound similar. I seem to take 9uk across the board. I can even get into Alden 9D van and barrie last or 43 Vass U last or ZB 8.5 UK Sailor last and I'm a 10us.

The funny thing is that my foot length measurement is actually longer than 9uk. Both Emil and Antonio initially thought I was 9.5uk based on my foot length.

Since the weather is getting warmer, I am wondering if anyone would be interested in this.
Brand new, tried on wear twice at home, outsole has no sign of use.
Sorry to bother you guys.

That's definitely a nice looking shoe. Hopefully you get to sell it off quickly.

You guys are mostly UK 9.5, right? Here's a good looking pair of new Bonafes at a good price. I've got a pair coming from SoH in that Inca 9120, which I'm excited to try, and a Tarnsjo chukka on the 74945 from Skoak that I am equally excited to try. This looks to me like a great makeup.
