    Gents,

    I am curious if some people could help me out as I search for a deal on eBay to upgrade my overall shoe game.

    I wear a 7E UK in Crockett & Jones, amongst a few lasts, and a 7F UK in Church's custom grade. I also wear a 7UK in Meermin's classic line.

    I am curious about my sizing in John Lobb, Edward Green, and Vass as well. If anyone could make a suggestion for those, it would be much appreciated. If it is as simple as (for the most part) wearing a 7UK in the C&J means the 7UK in the rest, that would be easiest! Thanks in advance!

    Impossible to answer fully because of the significant differences in the various Lasts. However my experience in Vass is a classic Budapester size 41 roughly equates to a 7G on the Church 73 last, Edward Green size 7F on the 202 last and 7.5E on the EG 888 last. To further complicate things the salesmen in EG's London store told me the shoes will give significantly with wear!

    No substitute for trying a few different pairs on I'm afraid. If you buy wisely on eBay I guess you could always resell if you take a chance & the fit is not correct for you.
