1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Sir, if you take a size 8.5 EUK in the 82 last same as me then you will be fine with a size 8 in the 64 last , I only need a 8.5 in the 82 and 888 last the rest are fine for me in size Uk 8.
    The 82 and 64 last are quit different IMHO

    I don't mean to be blasphemous but that is pretty close to the RL Marlow shell wingtip (sans thistle):

    if all of your Greens are D width, that is a UK D width, which is considered, at least by EG, to be slightly more narrow than medium/standard/regular width. Some US retailers carry EGs only in D width and they erroneously tell customers it is standard width.

    I agree with you that EGs D width many times doesn't feel much different than a US D width. In my experience, that depends on the last. I have a few 82 lasted bals and the 82D is noticeably more snug than the 82E. Further, my 82D is noticeably more snug than a typical US D width. I can, and do, wear D and E widths in all the lasts you mention. And a D width in the 82 is easily the most snug.

    A lot of it IMO has to do with desired fit. A 8 uk E and a 8.5 uk D are very similar. I can get away with either.

    I also plan to wear my zugglet with a thicker sock so I am going to stay with 82 sizing.

    +1 82D is super tight, it was what I bought at Leathersoul for my first EGs, sold them all




    Yup, already have Marlow and Lindrick, EG version is a lot better which is why I want it

    As has been stated many times in this thread - every foot is different and the only was to be certain is to try it on. Based on my experience you'd be going UP 1/2. :paranoia:

    so these boots i received last week are apparently really old. NOS boots from Holland & Holland. Tag was marked 320 GBP and the boots smell musky and like old leather. The smell can fill up a room. The leather is very soft however and boot in overall great condition. They may have been sitting in a basement for who knows how long. Anyone have any suggestions on how to freshen up the leather to remove smell?

    That sucks. Those are great boots. I heard that you should use vinegar. There was a thread on this somewhere.

    I am sorry to hear that. I do like the color of those boots. Here's hoping you can figure out something that will work to resolve this somehow.
