Thanks man, much appreciated
Does GG TG73 fit narrower then Carminas Rain last? I'm trying to nail down my TG73 last sizing. I'm a 9.5UK in the Rain, although I find it a touch long.

Hi All, What's the word on Fratelli Talia super 130s fabrics? I was at my tailor doing some alterations I decided to kill some time and flip through some of the new season books.

Is the 109 roomier then the 724 last? I've read that most here have always went with the same size on the 109 and the 724.
X - Post: Maybe somebody can help here - just received my new pair of AS Armfields in black. They are possibly one of the nicest plain captoes I have ever seen from any RTW brand. Anyways my question is about the sizing of the 109 last. I am in between a brannock US 11 D/C width, with what I consider a lower then normal instep. So, now that I've tried in these Armfields, it feels as if they are about 3mm longer then the AS 724 last, also with what I consider a pretty...
