What do you guys like better in vintage oak, Arrans or Burnhams? I have the cedar burnhams already but still can't decide between the two.

Both are written 8 1/2E on the inside.

The Harrow is 30cm length and 10cm wide, the Barclay is 31.5cm x 11.5cm. 

Could anyone who is an 8 1/2E UK measure their pairs, so we can get to the root of this? To me a centimeter and a half difference in both length and width on the same size seems like their is something wrong somewhere...

Appreciate any feedback.

I have just measured 3 of my pairs for you. All on dg70 the only last I have. (I will probably now be removed from this thread for that) and all are 30cm in length and roughly 10cm dependant where I hold the tape. All measurements are from the sole.

Thats very kind of you. Thanks. It may seem then that my Harrow is the correct size, and maybe the Barclay was large. The dilemma I have though is that I`ve ordered a GTMO Kudu in the same size as my tight MG71, on the expectation it was the `looser` TG73 size. I did get a mail from Dean at G&G suggesting that the difference was larger than he expected, and that I should return the Harrow for measurement. The issue could well be the Barclay. I`ll try and see if this can be sorted out privately and amicably, as no-one really wants this vented. I`ll go private on the issue until I can get this resolved, and hopefully all positively. Thanks again everyone, and enjoy your G&G shoes. Hopefully I`m in the minority who has experienced this.

Yea G&G is very consistent at least from my experience on all the shoes that I own.

Harrow MH71 8 was narrower than St James. Not sure which pair is incorrect.

Not really
The inner toe of TG73 sweeps inside at a steeper angle vs the MH71 giving the impression that it's narrower, but it's not. The outside toe of the TG73 also sweeps inside at a less steeper angle vs the MH71 so in total, the toe space / width should be about the same.

On the shape of my feet, the TG73 toe ahape fits better

So if TG73 fits very well & snug in comparison how would MH71 last would fit? I would assume the same accept more space in toe box?

I am comparing my size 8E MH71s Harrow and St James. Harrow pair was narrower, adding to daizawa's question. Too hawt for me TG73s not involved.

In my opinion the Arran is one of the nicest looking Chukkas out there. The other one is the St Crispin Chukkas. You certainly can't go wrong with the Arran.

Hm might have to go Arrans then since I already have a pair of burnhams. The burnhams are comfy though
