DG 70 is a bit too pointy for my liking, MH 71 or GG 60
post #12512 of 21772
The DG70 needs to be seen in person to truly gauge whether or not it's too pointy for you. If you have never been turned off by a pointy last, then order the DG70, you should be pleased. If not, the safe bet would be the MH71 IMO...

If you like the almond toe...DG70 is your choice....

 

I prefer the TG73 to the MH71...but MH71 is very nice too...

Thanks all for the opinions so far - I've not seen any G&G in the flesh yet so need to check them out asap! @wurger was checking out your quintessential thread and the MH71 does look great!

Torsion, just go with GG06 -- it's round but has enough shape and chiseling to make it pop. It's an underrated option here in style cyberspace.

Speaking of GG06, I have mine on today

I agree, I have couple of models on GG06. I never understood SF aversion to round shaped toes.

I think most of SF are dandies at heart, so the chiseled / almond toed lasts are usually favored. In any case, i don't think it matters what last Torsion pics for his MTO, it's going to be a great looking shoe...

I wear a smaller size and rounder toed shoes tend too look off. I don't think I can pull off Deco but the DG70 or TG73 works just fine.

That is valid response. I seem to have opposite problem. TG73 was just too narrow in the toe-box for me, so I went a half a size up and size 11 UK E looks off.

G&G lasts are amazing... always a conflict between EG and G&G for me.

Do I really need a Canterbury in vintage rioja when I already have a Wigmore in that color... and I'm also trying to get a pair of EG Shannons...

Maybe I already have too many balmoral boots and I shouldn't pick up any more.

Anything to do to avoid writing reports for the next few hours.
