Interested but not yet committed yet. I would need have a better idea regards to the fit (which Last), and I also need to know if I can get one shoe 1/2 size smaller than the other.​  Any idea regards cost and expected delivery?

 

Is the apron hand sewn?

Thank you sir.

 

Can anyone tell me how this Last compares to TG73, MH71, or EG 82 or 888?​

Do you normally get different sizes or is this just because you need a precise fit for loafers.  I've often thought about doing this.

I don't normally do this with shoes or boots, but with loafers a better fit is required.

Highly interested now, just need reassurance with regards to fit and the fact I could get one shoe in 1/2 size smaller than the other.

Any idea regards cost and delivery time frame?

I'm thinking I'm an E.

I doubt G&G is going to allow size mismatch on GMTO but if you decide on ordering anyways you should request a full sock liner in your shorter shoe. That might help with the fit.

Thanks that's a good idea, but it would certainly be more ideal if they allowed the size mismatch.

@JubeiSpiegel

 

I just emailed Gabriel at Skoak for fit advice and whether or not it would be possible to get one a half size smaller as part of an MTO. Hopefully he will be able to get back with me sometime tomorrow.

That is a very interesting idea that may possibly help a lot of clients of theirs who may have different sizes feet. Great idea to ask, especially for the tighter fit needed in a loafer.

Of course Rancourt is no G&G but I was able to do that with a pair of cordovan loafers I ordered via their custom tool on their website. I found that when I ordered a pair of loafers from Brooks Bros that going down a half worked for the small foot but just too tight on the larger foot. Going with my normal size and I was unable to keep the shoe on the smaller foot. With the custom order via the Rancourt site the problem was solved with one foot using the normal size and the other a half size down.
