    can any of you EG owners give me an idea of how their 888 last fits compared to other lasts from English shoemakers? I was checking out skyvalet (or was it Leffot) and they have their sizing listed as UK8.5/US9D. I wear a 9D on the Alden Hampton last and a UK8F on the Alfred Sargent 724 last. Would it be safe to assume that I would wear a UK8 on the EG 888 last, or is a UK 8.5 better fitting?

    888 is a little elongated compared to the 202. I'd say you should probably need to try out both UK 8 and UK 8.5 to be sure.
