• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Thanks. In terms of US sizing 82 in 9UK = 9.5 US, while Forest in 9 UK= 10 US. I guess you find 82 last long enough to accommodate your feet in half a size smaller US equivalent size versus Forest? My feet are average or slightly below average in terms of instep and volume, so I've wondered whether 8UK/8.5 US would work better than my standard 8.5UK/9US size in EG. I wear 8UK in Carmina and C&J (all lasts, but find I can comfortably wear my Lindrick on 325 last with heavy boot socks).
I have 9UK in all EG shoes (maybe 184 could be a bit tight).
I have 43 (9UK) in forest and uetam. 8,5 UK (42.5) in detroit.
325 is a impossible last to me. I bought a cavendish shoes in 8,5UK and it was small. 9UK very big. I bought a coniston one month ago in size 9UK and I returned them because they were wide for me in D width.
If you have any doubt in EG, buy always your size. 184 last could be small in your size, but other last are TTS generally.

Sounds like a bit more wear would help out the shoes to break in at the heels.

It would be unfair to say because I prefer the fit (more snug), and aesthetic appeal of the Chelseas. Consequently, that gets worn more often. I kind of forgot about the Audley after I picked up the Chelsea hahaha.
What you said makes me to replace Audley to Chelsea haha. Can I ask you which sole did you picked up for Chelsea? Leather sole or R1 sole?

For sure. But if you have EG shoes with rubber sole, would you share with me how's their slim rubber sole?
I actually do not own any EG Oxfords with Rubber soles. I own several Dovers that have a rubber sole, but due to the ruggedness of the shoe you would not get a feel for the more refined silhouette that a Chelsea or a Cadogan would offer with that rubber sole.

I would guess a few of the boys here would have an Oxford with a rubber sole.

These galways keep calling me. I’m a sucker for blue/navy with all clothing although not sure how versatile these will be. Anyone have them?
I don't have these but I have a dark brown utah and then the rosewood CC versions of the Galway--a shoe so nice you've got to buy it twice :)

I love the Utah leather so I would say go for it as the Galway lust never goes away and it's a sweet boot.
