It's usually people can fit MH71 but they can't fit TG73 so they have to size up by half a size. If you fit TG73 and the length is perfect for you then it would not make any sense to size down half a size unless you have considerable toe room. Even then, you are gambling more by sizing down then by going with the same size. Worst case scenario after going same size for both is that MH71 is slightly looser width wise which isn't even a big deal given how tight GG lasts are.

Honestly, your gamble is going to be pretty small compared to what most people go through here but if someone else knows better please correct me.
Thank you just needed a peace of mind for my own head I guess logically what you said makes sense. I guess in a way some reassurance biggrin.gif

Yeah, it's hard to know when to size down in width or length unless it's obvious you are swimming in the shoes and have heel lift. Knowing when you need to size up in width or length is more obvious and I think that's how people have discrepancy in sizing between lasts. If you are tight and perfect in TG73 then you really don't want to mess with it.

To be honest, I have TG73 St James II as well. I actually prefer getting an MH71 St James since it helps differentiate the two. Plus since it will be your first MH71, having the same model will be a good thing as the sizing difference is minimized and it will allow you to know you can buy that last in the future.

Hope that helps.

Awesome, the V looks perfect on that so I don't think you'll have issues. Especially if it is snug. In fact, it might even feel more comfortable.

When I enquired about whether their new shoe trees are lasted below is the reply I received.

Thank you for your enquiry, our trees are still cut to the last, all our last have the same fitting properties, it's only the very end of the toe box that is generic.

All great choices, Congrats!!

Can anybody tell me whether the pearl grey is a result of using museum leather like Vass or John Lobb or just a result of how these shoes are finished. The variation in colors certainly looks like museum calf anyway.

On the same note, can someone help with the comparison between GG pearl grey and EG antique cloud ?
