    Just placed an MTO for BRG Gable on TG73 with Skoaktiebelagot, to beat the price rise.

    I guess that makes me 'Man of (British Racing) Green Gables'!

    Sincere apologies for that...

    Leaves - to clarify, E width is equivalent to us D width correct? General recommendation is to size down half from US? I can always email the store but from what I've read that seems to be the consensus. Thanks.

    If they've got the 6, and subject to seeing the final specs, can I tag along as an F width?

    Deadline for beating the price increase is looming quickly, is it not?

    Interesting. I had a pair of loafers on the KN14 last one full size down from us which is half size down from barrie and they were too tight. Do you have any shoes on this last? Low instep, narrow feet? Thanks.

    I take all gg last in this size & they are indeed more snug than EG equivalent but both eventually break in well.0.5 size up will relax you at first but instep will become too high.

    Thanks for the info. I wore the pair I had for about a week on carpet and just felt the toebox was way too tight. It could have broken in enough but I just wasn't comfortable. I think the little bit of room - if anything a thin insole would solve slightly too big. Thanks for your help.
