    I just received a lovely pair of Chelsea in Dark Oak from Edwards of Manchester. However, on the box, it's labelled as "Chelsea.N". Is the additional ".N" meaningful?

    EG Fittings???


    It was my understanding that most English shoemakers use E, F, and G for the width of their shoes and boots. The inside of my EG Galway has been marked as an 11 1/2 D so I figured since I was ordering another Galway in another configuration from someone else I would confirm that this was an actual UK 11 E. The Axel website lists the UK size but not the UK width so I called and spoke with an SA today. He told me my boot was al 11 1/2 D on the EG D Last. I mentioned that it was my understanding that EG used E, F, and maybe G. I asked him if maybe this didn't equate to the UK 11 E. He insisted that they use the EG D Last instead of the UK E Last to keep the boot from being so chunky. He said the D Last is sleeker than the UK E by a good 1/16 of an inch.

    I'm confused.

    Now that you mention it, my previous Dark oak galway was from axels and I didn't notice the width. If it was "d" width, it didnt feel tight nor was it uncomfortable

    It's also possible the SA isn't aware this is actually a UK E. He was pretty confident it wasn't. Anyway, I thought I would post something here and see if anybody had any ideas.

    To my understanding the size specified by Edward Green should be interpreted literally, so a 11/ 11 ½ E should be read as: UK11E & US11 ½ E.

    This I what I understood from Alex from E.G. Paris: if you go up in width, example given: from E to F then the F with has the same width as an E in half a length longer. A few examples to illustrate:
    - A UK11E has the same width as a UK10 ½ F
    - A UK11D has the same width as a UK10 ½ E

    For what it is worth, I have also come across E.G. shoes on eBay in the C-width (marked as such) and also lots in the D, E an F widths.

    I guess I was just so used to seeing E and F, I wasn't aware they also had C or D.


    Then again I hadn't really been looking at these shoes prior to last year.

    Nice! Now let's see it with the shovel!

    ddd, don't mean to add to the confusion, but when it comes to width, I believe EG does not do any conversions (e.g., they mark 'E' for the UK market then use 'D' in the US market like C&J does for Barney's). I have a pair of Chelseas (marked D) made for Barney's and they are definitely narrower than my other EG shoes in E. Regarding size, I think it's pretty much understood that X(UK)/X+.05(US).

    What last is the Galway on?

    The one I have and the one I am getting will be on the 82.

    I understand they did make these on other Lasts as well. However I don't know if they still do that.


    Maybe you should consider getting a Galway.[​IMG]
