    I got a reply from Pepe this week, just the day after emailing him, and he was very helpful. I had sent an email over the Christmas period, and not heard back - I guess there was a backog and it got lost. It happens. It was just a simple request for the lowdown on their Jodhpurs though. I would suggest trying again - Pepe was very polite and apologetic, not that I had minded.

    Thanks. I will wait till the end of the week, then try writing to somebody else.

    Meermin is really my best bet at good quality, acceptable price double monks. I wouldn't pay full price for Loake Cannons as I am not 100% behind the color and shape and didn't hear good opinions about durability of Suitsupply shoes... I hope this works out...

    Looks like couple widths too narrow. How does it fit across the metatarsal area?

    It took a while to adjust to the other "9-5" but I think I finally found something that allows me to sleep on the job, if you will

    Quite snug, but not more snug than other shoes I own in UK width F from Grenson for instance. The main issue is the lacing area strangely enough. I have a derby on the same last which is also a snug fit sans the lacing issue.

    Sounds like you have a high instep to go along with a foot that is too wide for that very narrow last.
