Is there or has there ever been a 33 last from EG? I know of the 32, but 33?

Yes. 33 is a square-toe version of the 32.

There was also a 35, a bit more round-toed. Mine are monks made in 1982.

Thanks to our good friend "˜centipede', here are the featured lasts in an old EG catalogue (mid- late 80s):

I think I know why you're asking about this last...and yes I will be bidding too.

Going back even further I believe there was a number 30, almost identical to the 202, slightly more tapered.

You realize that those are pretty narrow right? An English C width is like and US B I think.

I emailed the seller and he said it measures out to a 9.5D. If I win them and they don't work out I'll resell them.

These shoes are not even 12" in length and less than 4" wide.
This seller is off by a full size. They are US 8/8.5 tight medium width, comparable to C&J E-width.

You wear size 9.5, don't you?

Wow...thanks for the heads up. I was just about to measure a pair of my C&J 9 UK to compare.

I'am size US7.5 and some of my shoes on elongated last are 11" 3/4 in lenght.
So there is no way these Lobbs are US 9.5, nor they are truly US D-medium. For US-D the outsole has to be at least 4 inches wide.

I have three pairs of non-RLPL EGs that are size US9.5. All of them are around 11.75" in length. So the seller is right on that count. These particular shoes do seem a bit narrower than my D-width EGs, however. My guess is that they are C width, consistent with the label on the inside of the shoes.
