Many thanks, assume width is the same.

MH71 is calling my name but I want to minimize creasing across the vamp. If the DG70 fits like a close with minimal creasing, would the MH71 fit similarly?

 

May I ask you, how are you able to order shell, I can't find this option on the bespoke-england site!

yes same width, 337 is a hair wider. G&G are much tighter at first but after an hour of wear they fit similarly.

for shell, contact Nick. Youll have to go MTO route

Hm, in this case I think I need to choose wide fit, not normal.

 

Yeah, I know about MTO, I went through and there was no such option as cordovan, only calf, grain, pigskin, and some exotics.

Who is Nick by the way? Sorry, I'm new here, don't know people...

i dont have any "wide" shoes so both lasts fit fell (DG70 slightly narrower). if you take wide fitting shoes, then perhaps a wide fit would be best for DG70. In either case, contact Nick and he'll help you out. its always a pleasure, just too expensive. tounge.gif

NAMOR, Nick's customer service is impeccable. So few retailer's treat their customers with a complimentary car these days.

+1 for Nick being great. Honestly, a significant part of my having four G&G MTO's in the works is that bespoke-england seems to be the only high-quality shoe retailer to really be embracing the internet. Why are all the other makers/retailers such luddites? Just because one eschews new technology in the making of shoes doesn't mean one must eschew new technology in the selling of shoes. And yet, Nick seems to be the only one who gets this. 

 

Also, just order a pair of Wigmores in Whiskey Shell with a Hatch Grain shaft. Cannot wait for fall.

My first dealings with Nick came a few years back when he was my go to guy for discounted Lobbs.

I think he still has access to quality Lobb subs. I keep meaning to drop him a note to ask.
