My best shoes to date are Aldens in Hampton, Barrie, and Van lasts, and a pair of RM Williams Comfort Craftsmen for bad weather days.

Thanks in advance.
I have st James 2 and they are very comfortable I have them on TG73 last. And as for sizing I take same size as my Alden Barrie last. As far as square toe Tg73 has little less space vs MH71 is roomie. Comes down to your personal preference.

TtownMD, many thanks for your reply. Perhaps I should leave things as they are originally designed. My foot is a B width and G&G's Nick told me they can MTO an extra narrow. Thanks again, sir.

Since you are in narrow width like I am I would go with TG73 last since you are doing this in mto. You will be very happy & one very very good choice icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

That's exactly the advice I had hoped to receive. Thanks again, TtownMD!

Funny, was just about to post the same question. I can't decide between the two on St James II Vintage Cherry F width. Been going back and forth, reading tons of posts, seeing photos...just can't tell which one is better looking.

G&G's archive section of their website has great photos. You can search images by last, e.g. MH71.

After helpful advice here, I decided to stick with the TG73 last, the same as G&G makes them for stock.

And the Euro is down! The USD finally gains an advantage. I am trying to help with our trade deficit. ;-)

I hear you, been looking at TONS of photos. No idea why I'm so undecided smile.gif For some reason the James in TG73 looks very slick, but I guess I'm attracted to the MH71 cause of its alleged timeliness. I'm in early 30s so no problem wearing a bit more fashion forward stuff.

blue2007, I get what you are saying. To my 54 years old eyes, the TG73 is a traditional chisel toe. Now the Decco last is what I would call 'slick'. After much contemplating, I think that Tony Gaziano's design elements are a perfect balance of classic and contemporary. The fact that G&G can offer so many variables is amazing in comparison to any other manufacturer of similar scale.

I am excited to go down this path. From what I have gathered in this appreciation thread and read in many blogs, I think buying G&G is a worthy step up from any readily available RTW shoes in the U.S.

Yes you are very right and I feel you will be very happy with TG73 last If you go up & few page back give or take. You can see my st James 2 pic on TG73 last.

Dr. T, I had searched this thread extensively and saw your pictures -- very nice. Your advice as to fitting was the brand endorsement that helped me decide to stick with TG73 for the St. James II. Many thanks again.
