    Richard has said that we need a minimum of 4 peopoe for a fitting 5 shoe with such a specification and six for a fitting 6. Therice is more or less as quoted in the OP.

    Price-wise, I am in.
    Need to figure out sizing for sure, though..
    EndClothing says:

    But the Tricker's site says fit 6 is a wide.

    Can someone else comment on what size? I already mentioned I'm a US 9EE so I'm thinking I need a UK8.5 in the fit 6?

    Knucks, EndClothing are mistaken:
    fit. 5 = E = medium
    fit. 6 = EE = wide

    I'm a perfect 6.5 - 5 on the 4497 last (Stow, Eaton, Ripon...) and a perfect 7 - E on my US boots (Red Wing, Alden, Thorogood...)

    Isn't D = medium while E = wide?

    Knucks, I wear UK 6.5 G. On 4497 last, UK 6.5 - 5 is too tight around the toes while UK 6.5 - 6 is good.

    The "fitting" refers to width correct? If so, I think a 5 is what I wear in the Tricker's that I currently have but will double check this evening.

    So if I'm hearing y'all correctly, a UK8.5 (fit 6) would be equivalent to a US 9EE..

    But really I guess I'll know better when we settle on the last. I got wide feet so a generous fitting last would be great...4444, it seems.

    hi Knucks, I think badeggcat prefers last 81 but I already have a pair of 81 black so I can only go for 4444.

    thanks

    Knucks, I think your best bet is 4444 last on 6 fitting. Perhaps someone with EE width feet would chime in.

    Don't worry about my personal preference, just get what's best for yourself!

    I may be confused here, when we decide on a shoe, all specs have to be the same..?

    Style and width must be the same....
    Try AS if you need combination of width, Richard might be able to help us with this.

    I asked about perforated cap toe with no medallion, it's not an option before, it might be now since they have that model made.

    Yes, all specs has to be the same other than the sizes. You just need 4 or 6 people (as per Marcellionheart's post above) to come to an agreement. In our case, oven1969 wants 4444 last fitting 5 and needs 3 other person to confirm to go ahead.
