I ride Speedneedles now. They fit me so well that I ride them in jeans on my commute.

No need to have a saddle wider than your sitbones. Extra weight and can also cause thigh rub. Not to mention limited choice of wider saddles than 135mm

actually depends on position. the lower the position, narrower the saddle. On roadbike I use 12cm, while on mtb 135 since sitting more up.
SQlab has nice info on saddle sizing.
