    ~$625 for EGs is a good deal. Too bad they don't have anything I need.

    This always happens, the day or two after I purchase a pair of shoes. I may just bite the bullet. I have a few pair I need to get rid of anyway.

    Careful tho, many of those models come in wide widths on Edwards' site.

    mrbrioni, the best way to avoid instakops is a short break from all menswear-sites. About a month is what I've found to be best, just long enough to prove that these silly sites are not essential to a happy life.

    Due to the fact that you are back, I can only presume, you do not want to lead a life that is too happy. :D


    As Marlene used to sing:


    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]


    Wenn ich mir was wünschen dürfte,
    möchte ich etwas glücklich sein,
    denn sobald ich gar zu glücklich wär,
    hät ich Heimweh nach dem Traurigsein.

    If I could have a wish,
    I would like to be a little happy,
    'cause as soon as I would be too happy,
    I would feel homesick for the sadness.

    How are the sizes in EG? If I have size 7/7.5 UK in shoes what should I have on EG, 8.5 US?

    This sale seems too good to ignore. However, I need some advice on sizing.

    My current experience with decent shoes is Loake 1880's which I've been buying 9UK (F width). However they are quite roomy on the sides and have a decent amount of room at the end. Should I try a 8.5UK (F width) Edward Green or try the 9UK?

    You have to be careful with widths on British shoes because most markers (like Church's, Barkers) use F as standard width but a minority (like Crockett & Jones, Edward Green) use E as standard width.

    Loake probably use F as standard width - there are two solutions, if you plan to buy Loake shoe again i. try 8.5F, it seems the shoe size is the issue not the width, you could even try 8.5E and ii. try 9E the narrower width may need 'breaking-in' but could fit better over time.

    For Edward Green try 8.5E:
    If slightly tight - that is your size
    If too tight - try the 8.5F width
    If small - try 9

    DO NOT PLAN TO BUY EG ONLINE, YOU NEED TO TRY THEM INSTORE. It is worthwhile to try different sizes instore and buy a pair of shoes, with that experience you will know what size to order online in the future.

    For me (US 7D), I wear EG 6.5/7E. Half size down works but I agree to try a pair on first! At this price range, you're taking a big gamble going on others' opinion since shoe fit is very subjective, not to mention the lasts used.

    You are so right, well most of my shoes are Crockett & Jones and few pair of G&G. I don't own a pair of EG yet, will try out/buy my first pair in a store instead.
