    To some extent, you're rolling the dice. You'll never be sure if the last is going to fit you well without trying it on. But .5 above your CJ size is the one with the best chance of success.

    I'm a 7,5E in most CJ and wear 8E in DG70, boots and oxfords.

    :cheers: awesome.
    just wanted to say im excited for your future purchase! also, are you going RTW or MTO? either way, if you really want the proper fit, you are best off to get a try on first imo, if you can.
    both fantastic.

    Thanks, Stitchy. I am too.

    I'm thinking of doing five MTOs and one RTW. I haven't decided all the details yet, but so far I'm thinking about EG Halifax in chestnut calf; EG Dover in nutmeg suede; EG Dover in either hazel or burnt pine; EG Olney in dark oak antique; and G&G Canterbury in shell cordovan. The RTW is EG's Piccadilly in dark oak antique.

    Unfortunately there are no stores around here that sell G&G, so I'm unable to try any on in person. I'm an 8.5 in EG's 202 and 82, however, so it sounds like 8.5 in G&G's GG06 would work.

    Take the same size in G&Gs as your EGs

    those are some great kops on the EGs (and GG)

    The Halifax is awesome. Usually it is sold in an F width to accommodate thicker winter / country socks (fyi)
