    Forgive me, Ed, I didn't really register that this was your shop. My comments must seem a bit weird!

    Anyway, at the risk of teaching granny to suck eggs, just a note on what you said about width fittings: British width fittings are a motherfucker, to put it bluntly. Makers use different sizes. Some would argue that makers who use "F" as their wide fitting do so because their lasts are inherently narrower. That might be true of some, but, just in case anyone is mislead, by their own standards, British makers divide as follows:


    Loake, Barker, Alfred Sargeant, Cheaney, Church's: E= Narrow, F=Medium, G = wide. Church's also do H= extra wide for some shoes

    Edward Green, Crockett and Jones, Gaziano & Girling: E=Medium, F = wide, G = Extra Wide (C&J's lasts are not particularly narrow in my experience, so G is pretty wide)

    John Lobb: E = Medium, EE = Wide

    Tricker's: some stuff to do with numbers, I think 5 = medium!

    Rikod, you are out of your mind. They are beautiful. And soon I will get some and prove it on my own feetses. So there.

    Ed, are you getting any bigger sizes, is it possible to order, or should I email Dinkalacker direct maybe? I take a UK 9.5, regular to wide, and a 10E on Allen Edmonds no.1 last is generous.

    I would guess that you are a 9 in these if you are a 9 UK and a 10E in AE but I will be ordering larger sizes, just realize that Dinkelacker doesn't make that many shoes a day and it will be about 2 months before I get more. Dinkelacker does not sell direct but menshoes.de has the full collection (although their site says they don't ship to the US).

    Thank you - that was a typo actually, I'm a UK 9.5, and have found that sometimes it's only a half number difference to US sizes, but wasn't sure in this case.

    I am actually based in the Middle East so I guess I'll have to check, but I'll work it out. Thanks a lot for your help.

    I would suggest on the Rio last to go down half a size and on the Buda last to take your UK size.

    Are all three models shell, or only the wingtips?

    I have an identical pair of those on the very first picture of this thread, i.e. the Rio last, and the term "formfitting" is very appropriate.

    I have no experience of Alden

    Arrived in Budapest late but swung by the HD store to snap a few pics. Unbelievable stuff.

    Wow, amazing stuff.

    You going to hit up Vass too? Speaking of which, I still haven't managed to "make contact" with any of the Vass reps. I feel like I'm trying to get in touch with a lost Amazonian tribe.
