Oy. Is the consensus that 8.5 on their sailor last works for say a 9.5uk EG?
Like @WhyUEarly said, probably not. However, I have a couple pairs in 8.5 and the length is fine just a little tight at the ball. With dress socks they work. All that said, UK9 is probably the way to go for you

Here are a couple…only have about three wears ea. For me the attraction of the leather is its almost roll instead of crease quality, and the texture.

What leather is this?
Zonkey’s brown calf
what maker and leather is the brown boot?
Got these from Ron Rider back when he was doing special makeups, and they’re actually burgundy.

Does anyone have a comparison between the ZB Sailor last and Allen Edmonds or Alden lasts? They have a super cool pair of elephant leather cap toe boots on Sailor, but I'm not sure I want to take a $1200 risk on sizing.

I am familiar with basically every AE last and Aberdeen, Plaza, and Barrie for Alden.

Sailor is a pretty easy to fit last tbh. I'd take it half down from Barrie or full down from Plaza assuming you take Plaza tts and Barrie half down from brannock. It will have more arch support and a more sculpted heel than Alden's lasts as it's a much more refined shoe.

I take a US8.5E in Plaza and US8EEE in Barrie. I’m guessing that Sailor in UK7.5EE is the play?
