    I think if you are able to try a couple of EG shoes it will give you a general idea. The 82 and the 888 are probably two of the more common ones so you can have some reference point. If you contact EG I am sure they can provide you with a catalog which shows their lasts. I think a graphic was actually put up on this thread some time ago if I remember correctly.

    looking at a last in person is not even helpful for us laymen. a picture of last shapes, what you supposedly meant, in a catalogue can only give an airy idea of the real fit. just sayin...

    Appreciation is very relative.

    That number is something like a serial number. When EG does a run of shoes - all those shoes get that number. For example, if Leffot orders 20 Westministers in dark oak on the 888 - all if those shoes get the same number. However, if you order a shoe MTO and nobody else ordered the same make-up around the same time you would get a unique number. I believe they are in the high 80,000's currently. Might be starting into the low 90,000's. Not sure when this practice started.

    Interesting. Would be cool to be the one with 90,000 or whatever round number. :)

    Thank you. Can't believe they didn't come up in the search.

    No, the 202, 82, and 888 are readily available.

    The 32, 33 and 201 were standard in the 1980s - probably available via MTO now, I think. The 346 appears to have been specially made for Brooks Brothers (346 being the street number for the BB flagship on Madison Avenue), also probably in the 1980s. And the 89 was a last made for RLPL, but it looks like the 89 is being phased out in favor of the 888.
