    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?

    Yep we were talking about chukka similar to G&G Arran with unlined top.

    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.
