    For me, Aberdeen in 10E is the best fitting last.

    I chuckled as I read this. :D

    But in all seriousness, there is no cross-examination intended (in spite of the lawyer inside me); rather, an honest inquiry. And I rather like the Aberdeen, too.

    Happy New Year to one and all. :nodding:

    Thanks for correcting me. I need 9.5 E for both 974 and 9071 is what I want to say.

    Going up a width does take away some of the sleekness of the Tremont last... I find that Grant and Aberdeen have more of a tapered look in E than Tremont, which is a plus for those styles. Nevertheless I still like my whiskey balmoral wingtips in 10E.

    9.5E. I can wear 10D in some models (longwings, PTB, chukka) but am uncomfortable in others (captoe boots)

    +1 for the Aberdeen. And +1 for people asking and answering questions in this thread politely. It makes it so much more enjoyable to read. Definitely not the case in some of the other few threads I browse. Happy New Year to all.

    My Cigar NSTs from Alden DC. I went with 11.5D instead of 11E, since that's what they had in stock.

    Can someone reply to my posts so I know they are showing up? I have tried to leave a few posts and it continually tells me they are in moderation. Thanks.
