    Trying to compare the dark brown museum calf to some of the other leathers. Would you say there is a difference in shade (darker or lighter) between the dark brown museum and the Ebano (dark brown) lama?


    Thanks!

    Usually we use Vitello for all our shoes, Betis has to be specified be the client specifically.


    We only have the Cola in the shop, so it's kind of hard to gauge. Cola would probably be closer though. Ebano is really dark.

    Thanks Patrick, I'm actually thinking of doing a dual tone so darker (in my head) seems better

    Yes, it is. There is a price list published in this thread and includes the up charge to cordovan. As well as a post from Patrik about available colors. It should all be within the last 10 pages or so or findable via search

    I took the same size in Rain, Forest and 74945
    Rain is one of my best fitting lasts out there.
    Forest did not work for me but the boots were made out of CXL leather which is very stretchy leather so think that might be a reason why. I have not tried Forest in any other leather.
    74945 was just too tight in toes area for me so I am thinking about going a wide width on 74945 if available.

    I took 9, a bit narrow for me. 9.5 would work I think. Or maybe a 9 wide if they have it. 74945 looks a bit nicer though so if there is a wide width there might go for that instead

    I handled both 74945 and 363, 74945 is definitely nicer last.

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to get my first pair of EGs, but need some help on getting the right fit. I'd like to get the Chelsea, in either the 202 or 82 last. How do the lasts compare?

    I currently wear the following:

    Carmina Forest - 10 UK
    Carmina Rain - 10 UK
    AE 65 last - 11 D US

    Given my sizing, what size should I consider in the EG 82 and 202?

    Thanks.
