    The 184 is a nice loafer last. I wear loafers snug. Going down 1/2 size works for me.

    I wear my 184s in the same size as all other EG lasts (UK9.5E), and even so, had to stretch my 184s, since I find the last so narrow in the forefoot. Ymmv

    I was in Paris this weekend and wore my Galways (82 - Dark Oak + Country Calf - Dainite double sole) two days straight. I took the subway a couple of times a day. I noticed about 4 girls on different occasions that were eyeballing my boots of which one girl in her early twenties was just gazing at them for about 5 minutes straight (until I reached my destination and hopped off). Also a salesmen at the RL store in ST Germain, complemented me on them and wanted to know who the maker was.

    Pretty funny, in my country I haven't ever noticed strangers paying any interest to my E.G. shoes.

    Remind me to book my next vacation to Paris. Women never notice my shoes in the states and are only impressed by brand name.

    Maybe a stupid question but can somebody explain what HAF soles are?

    HA/F soles are soles that have the thickness of double leather soles at the forefoot section of the sole, which then tappers to single sole thickness at the (arch) midsection of the sole. See the following example.

    Indeed your Galways have HA/F soles. One of the reasons for HA/F soles is indeed to make the shoe look more elegant, the waist of the shoe is sometimes bevelled which also contributes to an overall more elegant look of the shoe. I am not sure if the HA/F sole provide more comfort compared to full leather double soles, maybe someone that has both can chime in. I have a pair of Galways on HA/F and multiple other models on single soles, the only difference I notice when wearing HA/F is a tiny bit of added hight, nothing comfort wise.

    Furthermore HA/F is an E.G. only abbreviation, I have seen soles with similar attributes used by other makers but they are not called HA/F soles.
