    This is true the F fitting in the 888 is different, not like the 202, the 888 last is a narrowish last and the F is only slight wider at the front.

    My Monmouth is on the 888 E last and the Westminster I had to take an F in the same last but the Monmouth is a Derby (open lacing shoe) hence that may be the reason.

    I can see your concern as the Belgravia is a loafer and the fit has to be correct for you but you may be OK,most of the EG loafers I have tried on are quite narrow and I would need an F fitting myself.

    This info is no doubt buried somewhere in this long thread, but could someone rank the EG lasts from wide to narrow-fitting - or even identify which lasts, as a group, are on the wider-fitting side of the fence?

    Thanks,

    Roger

    Dear Roger,

    I only find the 202 and 64 last are a slightly generous compared to the others, the rest are standard but who are you comparing them to ?

    The wider fitting comes into question if they are and D, E or F fitting, to my knowledge the D is a narrow fit, E is standard and F is a wider

    I take an 8 UK size in the 202 and 64, E or F fitting

    I am a 8.5 in the 82, 888 and 606. E or F fitting

    The size 8 or 8.5 will give me more or less length but how wide the shoe or boot is depends if it is a D, E or F .

    Very difficult with shoes, everyones foot is different, in fact my left foot is slightly different to my right foot so it is best to try and see what feels most comfortable for you.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Farhad - I do know that varying widths are available, but I was trying to identify which lasts might have a wider standard fit, so your response is indeed helpful.

    I am guessing that F width is generally reserved for special orders? I don't see many offered by the various EG retailers among their stock selections.

    202 and 606 are widest standard fitting

    the 184 is medium.

    the 888 and 82 are narrower.

    Unipair has a good selection of EG in F fitting if you are interested.

    I am wearing my 82E galway today.

    Does anyone know the current price for an Edward Green factory recraft? I have not sent shoes for this service in several years and wondered whether anyone could inform me of the going rate.
    Thanks in advance. Cheers.

    Some retailers do carry the same shoes but in the F fitting, I remember I tried on the Galway boots on the 82 last F fitting and did not like the way they fitted me but that may be different for others. As I said everyones feet are not the same, I tried the Westminster in the 888 E but felt the F a better fit where as the Monmouth are fine in the same size and on the 888 E last . You need to really try both E and F and see what works best for you.

    As far as last go I agree that 202 and 606 are widest standard fitting

    the 888 and 82 are narrower.

    202 F is much wider than a 606 F, FYI

    Yes, the difficulty is that both of my local retailers carry nothing wider than E - and not an abundance of those - D seems quite popular. It fits me okay in the 888, but I've had more miss than hit with the 82. Have not tried the 202 yet.

    I'm not a fan of the Irvine however the Scott is a fine looking winter boot. I have no experience with Cheaney so I'm not sure if it's worth almost $500.00. It is half the price of an equivalent Galway though. I just can't bring myself to spend $1k + on just a foul weather boot like the shearling version of the Galway though I'm sure it's very nice.

    BTW the Scott can be found here.

    This is a reply from EG, a few months ago, regarding a color change on a pair of boots:

    Dear Sir

    Thank you for your email.

    It would not be possible to change the colour from Burnt pine to Dark oak. We could make them darker but it would not be as dark as the Dark oak calf.

    If you would like to go ahead with this, we can arrange for the boots to be collected and returned by DHL. The charge for collection/ repolish and return is £105.


    Kind regards

    Robert Willis
    Sales manager

    ..and this was their reply on an enquiry to change soles :

    Dear Sir

    We are able to change the soles on these boots the price is £180 with a 8-10
    week timespan.

    The Thames sole is made of rubber but was designed to look the same as a
    single leather sole with the added grip advantage for city use.

    If you live outside the UK I would recommend using our Home Repair Service
    to get the shoes collected from your house sent to us for repair and we will
    then send the shoes back to you, the reason for this is that we then do all
    the paper work for you so you avoid any issues with customs or duty.

    Best regards,
