Is Mr. Hasegawa still involved in the firm? I have to admit, when I first heard of G&G (and with ignorance), I associated Tony's last name with Italian origins. Not sure if the ethnic origin of the name is the reason.Very true.
In addition to width, height of the vamp/toe box might also come into play?The overall fit of the S sounds promising to me (lower instep) but the toe box looks too "square" from pictures. It looks wider than G&G's TG73. I was planning to pick up an S lasted shoe in the future but I might have to wait for there "other" lasts to show up and identify their fit/shape.Interesting that there is now a Vass and Spring Line connection!
I am a fan of the thistle although once I really started wearing G&G, it just fits better for me compared to EG because of the tighter heel. Great shoe and I probably will grab a Sandringham in a future but now in a different color.
