Bear in mind the shoe tree is pointier than the actual deco shoe because it fits inside.

(As I say that, I recognise it's like saying the antenna makes the Freedom Tower look taller than it actually is. Antenna or not, it's still pretty damn tall. And yes, the deco is pretty damn pointy. Just not as pointy as the shoe tree. lol8[1].gif)

Just a note (which probably has been discussed before, but hey), the G&G standard tree to the left is not having the toe shape of TG73. They use a "generic" toe nowadays, but since all lasts (except KN14) are the same except the toe shape it works fine and can more or less be called a lasted tree anyway. But if you look at the toe shape in that picture, it's way rounder than the actual TG73 last. The last itself is very square, since all the layers of leather will round off the shape a lot. To illustrate, here below is a MH71 last in size UK10 F-widht (used as a base for my bespoke lasts) and as you can see the toe is much more square than the tree above, and then the TG73 last would obviously be more square than this:

That's the advice from Neus@saville row. For vintage rioja, she recommends a combination of black, blue and burgundy cream.

What you stated is correct also but you also have option of buying fully lasted tree in red color deco & non deco same thing that is posted above. Know I am not claming to be expert but I have asked this few times from GG via email & calling. And each time I have given the answer they sell lasted tree you can get fully lasted tree, generic tree or full lasted deco tree which comes in black & red color. Black one is for fully deco shoes & red one is for only deco last. But also old school lasted tree in red color that is posted above.

When I spoke to G&G a few months ago, it was available for MTO.

Here is a sizing question for G&G experts:

 

I have G&G shoes built on the DG70 and the TG73 lasts.  They are size UK 11 width E and they fit me well.

 

I am trying to figure out whether size UK 10.5 width F built on the GG06 would also fit me well.

 

For reference, on EG’s 606 and 202 lasts, size UK 10.5 width F and size UK 11 width E fit me equally well. 

 

I’d welcome your advice and opinions.

I will be able to answer that question with more certainty when I receive my Thorpes in F width as I went down a half a size but decreased a length of the shoers. Are you in the rush to buy those 10.5 F width GG?

By the way I do have nice pair of Wigmores in your size for sale too.

That is little hard to answer because gg F width is no were close to eg F width. Best bet would be try them on & if you can't then run the gamble just because it depends upon your feet or big toe.

Thanks for your advice which was helpful @laufer and @TtownMD

 

I am not really in a rush, and, I'd love to try them on but unfortunately cannot and this is why I thought I'd try to get some expert opinions. 

 

 

@laufer I'd be very interested in reading your point of view once you have tried on your Thorpes.

 

Thank you both again!
