Your favorite extended typefaces?

What are some of your favorite extended typefaces?

I prefer Reservation Wide, by Silas Dilworth. Right now, it seems to be my go-to typeface for extended type. Idlewild by HFJ is another favorite.

Obvious ones like Helvetica and Univers will probably dominate this list, but what are some of your favorite extended typefaces?

I always learn more from these threads when people say the typeface, why you like it, and what type of things it can be used for. Links are okay, too. Thanks to everybody.

Reasons are mainly because of the variety within the family. I'm a sucker for thick/thin contrasts next to each other.

Trade Gothic Bold Extended is my personal favourite

If you’re feeling Swiss Microgramma is solid. I really like what’s going on in Idlewind however.

Microgramma is always a winner. I also like Serpentine, especially the italic. Both are great for signs and vehicle graphics and well received by clients.

Microgramma. Without a doubt. No other contenders for me; 'cept maybe Eurostyle Extended. I desperately wanted to use these faces when I was an apprentice comp. in the sixties but my boss was too tight-fisted to buy them.

Eurostile is Microgramma with a lowercase added, no?
