    Sorry to bump an old post, but I would like some input on these shoes. Long story short...

    1. Do these shoes look too wide?
    2. For a C width foot, would last would be better to try: Olfe or New Rey?

    C size is skinny, no?
    How can we tell if they look wide? the only way to make that call would be for you to wear a shoe on one foot and nothing on the other.
    Do you plan on walking around like that or will you be more conventional and wear both shoes at the same time?

    If the shoes are standard width, D? E?, then they will look fine in EVERYONES eyes.

    If they are loose on YOUR foot, then that is a different matter.
    The NEw Ray is skinny so go with them if the current shoes are too loose.

    We were all just a twinkle in our father's eye at one stage...

    Have any details about the hatchgrain been tossed around?

    Loafer? boot? NST?

    Chukka? fuck me, I don't even own jeans, or wear shoes when not wearing dress trousers.

    I'll keep my ears peeled for the one after the hatchgrain.

    I'll be in on the hatchgrain in an "EG style Dover" in an Olfe last with Blue lining, single leather sole.

    Hahaaa! That's very specific! All except the actual colour of the shoe!
    No split (camel) toes from me I'm afraid

    I'm not sure what the colour of the hatchgrain would be. I'd be more interested in a mid brown.

    nice.

    I could also go for Hatchgrain in a penny loafer, full strap, not beefroll.

    I like this if color will be on lighter side and sole'll be dainite or at least york.

    I believe wingtip derby boots will be really nice in mid-brown hatch grain. If you do not want boots, I think LWBs or wingtip oxfords will be nice as well.

    Wholecuts look sharp but I'm afraid when creases appear they will be significantly more noticable than on other designs. I like their Norwegian welt on wholecuts, Meermin's are not too wide and looks quite accurate.

    I believe dark brown hatch grain is not interesting and like something about EG's burnt pine much more. Maybe chestnut but without strong orange hue.

    About lasts I think it should be either Olfe or Hiro. I like the high boot idea because their boots are on Rui which is very wide for calf boot IMO.
