Wow. seems like a huge preference for TG73 here. Does anyone find it looks snouty at all? Or too chiseled?

To me they are chiseled but not too much. In terms of fit I love the mh71 best.

TG73 is too 'duck billed' for my liking. MH71 proportions look much more balanced and timeless.

+1 - much bigger fan of the MH71 than TG73.  Great balance of distinctive without being showy or aggressive.

I like the tg73 in d width but I feel it is too square on e widths.

I would love to seem the do a slightly softer chisel last. Think deco chisel size on a standard last. also find tg73 and mh71 a bit too large but that is due to my shallow feet.

There never seems to be much love on here for dg70. regardless of what I buy I always prefer it on dg70 (astaire, bramhall, Rothschild and Canterbury) I am actually about to order a vintage Rioja St James (new pattern)

Some of this does come down to sizing preference but I could get around this, really to me it is my first choice.

What does the "MH" stand for?  I imagine TG(73) is for Tony, DG (70) Dean and GG(06) the company initials. I've also speculated that the numbers are their birth years but really know none of the above for certain.

I prefer MH71 as well, though if someone ever offer DG70 in wider width I might get persuade otherwise

TG73 - Tony Gaziano *year of birth"

MH71 - Masaichi Hasegawa (Co-founder of G&G) *year of birth*

DG70 - Dean Girling *year of birth*

GG06 - Gaziano & Girling *year company started*

KN14 - Kettering Northampton *number of the main road going through Northampton*

Wow

That was so insightful
Never knew those last names actually stood for something!

Thanks for sharing

Hmm, I wonder why Hasegawa's name isn't represented in the firm's title...

Probably because it's an 'English' brand and it's a Japanese name.
