Why are we surprised at the comparison above? The tg73 is more chiseled so of course it'll be a little bit longer as they are trying to keep the width the same at the same point from the heel. The deco would look even bigger.

Regarding fit, I wear an E width in mh71 and prefer a F in tg73 and deco. The E on those two will fit but the break in period isn't ideal. The f fits perfect day one.

looks like the heelcup on the black harrow extends further back (i.e. overhanging the heel stack a bit more), and the welt at the toe extends a bit less forward as well

-- considering these two things, the difference in actual length is perhaps not as great as a first glance at the picture would suggest (although a wearer would feel even a 1/6 inch difference)

Not in my experience - both the above shoes are 8 1/2E - you can imagine the difference in fit. The black pair was sent back to G&G to confirm the size, but it was confirmed at 8 1/2E. One fits, one does not - same size, different last.

G&G's test shoes in-store are MH71. Based on their test shoe (which was new at the time, not tried on much), length- and width-wise I am a solid 9.5E (for a non-bespoke last, of course) - 9.5F is too wide, 10 anything is too long.

I take the same size in decos. Something like a couple years and over a dozen deco pairs later and my story remains the same - 9.5E all the way. Take from that what you will.

I recently placed 2 MTO on Deco square last and was told by G&G that it will fit exactly the same and it was confirmed by you as well that you wear same size smile.gif .
Is the Deco last more elongated than MH71.
Since I haven't tried Deco square last so it would be most helpful by seeing some comparison pics.
My size is 8.5 E on MH71 and 8 E on most C&J lasts.
8 E on the Rain last in Carmina and 8.5 E on the Simpson last. Just hoping that 8.5 E in Deco fits me.

I found the Deco last to be a 3/4 of size longer than my MH71 and TG73 lasted shoes (and I am a UK size 12).

My first Deco shoe on the Deco square last in size 12 was way too big/long compared to my TG73 or MH71 lasted MTO shoes. I had 2 fingers worth of space in the heel. I had it relasted in a 1/2 size smaller (11.5) Deco square last. Still too big. I opted to have it made on the TG73 in size 12, although the shoe is a Deco design and Deco standard built.

Both of my Deco shoes (Byron and Collcut) are on the TG73, and for some reason, both fit better than any other TG73 or MH71 shoes I own. I might add my TG73 lasted Deco design shoes look way more chiseled and squared than my regular MTO TG73 or MH71 shoes (thus the look and feel of my Deco shoes on the TG73 make them my favorite G&G shoes)

My suggestion, if you like the look and feel of the TG73 or MH71, ask to have the Deco design shoe made on the TG73 or MH71, but it will be made to Deco specs and pricing.

But in my opinion - here is the most surprising- I did not expect this - both Gaziano, both 8 1/2E and both MH 71. Admittedly one is double sole but that should only affect height?

That is interesting and I'll let you know how my deco shoes come out that I ordered in 12.5 they are making me a new last in my super narrow C width. Can't wait to see how long this is. Haha

They look very nice 👍👍👍

^ These are on my special extra narrow last based on the MH71! They are my best fitting (comfort wise) GG to date!

I can't get enough of my new G&G Walkton spectators with kudu! Thought I'd be daring here, hope the combo works...

Thanks a lot for all the feedback. Just to be sure to go with the same size as MH71 for my Deco pairs I am planning to visit Leffot today and try the TG73 last/Deco last if they have in my size.

I visited Leffot today and tried on a pair of TG73 shoes in size 8.5 E (same size as my MH71 pairs) but it's too tight for my toes.
They didn't have Deco last in stock at all.
Considering that Deco last is even more chiseled than TG73 would it be safest to go with F width for Deco/TG73 or just stick with the MH71 last.
