    9.5 I'd say.

    I disagree. That's probably best for a UK 9. Thats the Dover on the 32 last, right? Damn that's purty.

    Doesnt EG usually write something like 9.5/10 with 9.5 being UK and 10 being US size. Do all EGs have a half size difference between UK and US sizing ?

    There is (or used to be) an Italian firm which produces a range of shoes marked “Lobb's”
    (apostrophe S) for the Japanese market.

    Some years back a member here, I believe it was 'Bic Pentameter', checked the
    Japanese trade names register and reported the brand was registered at some
    point in the late 60s. Presumably at this time John Lobb (London) had no interest
    in the Japanese market and was probably not aware of the registration of a brand,
    which sounded suspiciously similar to their own.

    The brand “Lobb's” might be dubious, but apparently it's all above the law.

    Last 32 is pretty small (maybe 1/4 size smaller than 202). EG uses 1/2 size difference between American and English sizes. The shoes will be a (smallish) 9 1/2 UK.

    Yes, EGs have a half size diff between UK and US, but when they are made for another company, such as this one, they are occasionally made and labeled in US sizes. This is tagged a US 10.

    I had that exact same pair of EG Dovers - same color, same Louis Boston label. I bought them used on ebay a few years ago in my nominal size, 9.5 (for something like $50 bucks if I recall), and they were just too small - they do run about .5 size small, mainly due to narrowness at the toe area. This pair in 10 would have probably been perfect for me but I was slow on the draw, so congrats to whoever nabbed them.

    I don't think they're shell.
