    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    awesome!!! psyched for you

    it seems like the vast majority of folks take their Barrie size i.e. 8.5US and 8.5UK. But for me that has proven slightly to roomy. My dovers are an 8Uk to correlate with my 8US Barrie and I use a liner to take up volume. I have a different shoe due on the 202 any day which is a 7.5 and I am very curios to see the fit on that. However I know that a 7.5 is too small on 82...so it seems like I am a bit of tweener in EG depending on the last

    So do you gents suggest to size down a half size when ordering the 202 size? My first pair will be coming soon on the 888 last, and i was wondering if a 202 in the same last would work...

    I wouldn't either. In the same size I find the 202 a good fit and the 888 to be snug. There's a difference but I don't see it being a whole 1/2 size worth of difference.

    However since your a shoe guy and all you ever buy is Dovers I'm not really surprised. LOL

    I would suggest not sizing down, the shape of the last and style of the shoe make a difference as well. I actually size up .5 for my EG bals with a sock liner. So 8 d barrie=8.5 d uk for me. My brannock is right at about a 9. My high instep requires a little more room.
