    I hope so - I'm on the preorder list and was looking for pics by owners. Those look great

    Gents, I have tried 82 last some time ago and just want to confirm some sizing before placing Doak Galway preorder.

    Can someone post their sizing in 82 last vs Carmina and Alden?

    I'm 9US on Brannock and wear Carmina Forest ans Inca in 8UK and Alden Barrie in 8.5D for reference.

    When I tried 82 last a few years ago very briefly it was 8.5UK. I tried a free BB stores in T.O but they don't have my size to try.

    I'm more or less sure that 8.5UK is the right size but some reassurance would be great.


    thanks

    Thanks! Interestingly, although my almond cc Galways are more casual due to the leather, it's in the D width and the welt was cut much closer so it looks dressier than my dark oak. Minor idiosyncrasies can make a nice difference.

    Brannock: 7D
    Alden Barrie: 6.5D
    Carmina Alcudia: 6.5
    EG E82: 6.5/7

    Hope this helps.

    We are the same size. I tried 8.5 UK Galway on 82 last at Brooks Brothers and fit was excellent. That said, my 8.5 UK Chelseas on 82 last feel a bit large and I wonder if 8 would have been better. Probably a boot/shoe thing. I think 8.5 should be it for you.

    EDIT: I wear 8.5D Barrie last, 8 UK Rain last, 8 UK Forest last, 9D Grant last, 9D Aberdeen, 8.5C Van…

    I think it may have something to do with many centuries of war between the two countries?

    Steel, I take my Barrie size in all EG lasts and I think they all fit quite well. I like the way my 82 fits.

    Believe it's the Plymouth. You can see that it's a wingtip adelaide so it's neither the Malvern or Inverness.

    I've never ordered anything out-of-stock from Skoab (first order last week), but they say they can "arrange for a refill" at no surcharge. I assume that means you pay up front (i.e. at current prices)?

    Leaves said for purposes of the price lock in this thread that there are no pre-orders for items that aren't currently stocked. Mto or in Stock items only.
