    Thanks guys. I'm still not sure though, reason being this - I had a pair of really old EGs that were marked 7F on the 202 last that I bought off eBay. These turned out to be too big all around. I could put a finger (maybe even two, can't remember anymore) behind my heel with the shoe on.

    Maybe it's just the wide fitting (F)? It still seemed too big lengthwise. This is why I was thinking a 6.5/7 would fit me just right. Or could it be that the leather of the 7F pair just stretch out over the many years?

    There's this pair on B&S right now that I think is an excellent deal, but if it doesn't fit... [​IMG]

    I think I know what you're referring to. Nice shoes but it's a big drop from an F to a D... Also, depending on the last, the length can vary. I think there is around a 0.2" difference from E202 to E82.

    Good luck if you pull the trigger

    G, they are pretty awesome; however, I didn't know that it was supposed to rain earlier today so they had a nice little shower. No harm, no foul.

    Is the E202 longer or shorter? Had a pair of blucher D82 that were a bit too narrow (as they should have been) and a tiny bit too long. Got the Berkeley in 202E and last is pretty much perfect for me. E82 would be the same? If it's .2 shorter it'll be an amazing fit.

    edit: how can I make a post and show no pics:

    Sky Valet in Washington is having a sale on EG. Price with free shipping is $875 for most; $1000 for the Brummells with lasted trees. They have Dovers on the 606, but the Brummells on the 82 are the pick of the lot.

    Have at it, gentlemen!

    Oh, and although they're not up on the site yet they've started stocking a few models of Carmina as well.

    Cheers,
    LM

    Got an email this evening. Give them a call and ask about it - the email didn't say anything about it being a private sale.

    Cheers,

    Anyone know where I can get an EG Belgravia loafer in E width? Need a 9.5/10 E. Preferably in the US, but I'll do whatever it takes.

    Thanks!

    SK carried the shoe in D widths only. Plus, they're all sold out.

    Any other ideas?

    Actually they have it on sale, you are correct, but doesn't seem to be an E - how can you tell it's an E?

    Just spoke to Sky Valet. They recommend calling in your order. The website's inventory is not being updated in real time, so you need to call to confirm whether a shoe is in-stock. I was told $875 (from 1075) for all models except the Anniversary Brummell which is at 1,000 (from 1,250). The Brummell comes with trees. Hetom at Sky Valet is very decent to work with. SV carries some D widths and some E widths.

    Regarding Stanley Korshak, I have recently acquired 2 pairs:
    Wells in Dark Oak - 787.50
    Chelsea in Black - 770

    Good luck!!

    "At Edward Green we've lined our iconic Galway with shearling for a soft, warm fit. This winter it's available in rosewood country calf and tobacco suede as well as walnut country calf and mink suede. Both are made using the traditional veldtschoen method, whereby the upper is pulled across the top of the welt to ensure extra resilience and weather-proofing."

    Gorgeous. One down, one to go...
