    The more Galway i see on last 82 the more i feel that i made the right decision picking that last for my Galways.

    Is it me or does the 82 seem to be the default last for eg boots nowadays?

    Anyone know how the sizing on the 82 compares to C&J's 325 last or Alden's Barrie/Modified/Trubalance?

    All I can comment on is my experience, I wear an 8 d in the Barrie and a 8.5d in the 202 but I was advised the 82 is a little bit longer than the 202. The pair of dovers I have a smidge looser than I'd like so I will size down to the 8d when I order my boots next month. The choices are Epsom, Shannon, or Galaway. The Shannon is the leader but those galways make a case for be chosen.

    Thanks for the info! I'm after some Galways, I think. The Epsom and Shannon are awesome, too, though. Now I've just gotta find a stockist with some in my size, or some at all, even.

    I figured I'd go RTW for my first one, since I don't really know my sizing for sure yet, and I don't live too close to a stockist. I'll probably go MTO after that, though.

    Thanks! Now I really need to think about this, since I'm 6.5E UK - C&J 325 and 7E/7.5D - Barrie and TruBalance.

    Thanks--so I need to decide if I'm going to go with the same size as my Barrie, or half a size up from my C&J 325 boots. Would you say the 82 last is a decently wide last or should I go up half a size to compensate?
