The thing is EG has a much larger catalogue with so many more possibilities. They also have a wider range of Lasts which vary more in shape than G&G Lasts.

Respectfully, I don't necessarily agree that EG has a larger selection...I would suggest that EG has greater production capacity YoY than GG. If you have a look at GG's MTO page, there's a vast array of options and styles that I feel holds it's own relatively speaking.

I mean, anyone with their head on straight would say that after seeing 3-4 Dover pictures in a row! I'm sure if the GG thread had some St. James II, Isham Kudu, SJ2 Kudu/Calf, etc., lined up, many would feel the same smile.gif

To be fair, I think GG does more unique designs and shoes, whereas EG can be very tried and true.

I guess my opinion is based on seeing such beautiful shoes here and having owned shoes from both manufacturers I still prefer my EGs.

I had the StJames on the MH71 last which in images looks like the most beautiful shoe ever, however handling it didnt seem that impressive. I just guess I prefer EG in all aspects.

Unfortunately EG doesn't even publish their entire catalogue.

Actually I had the opposite opinion after receiving my St James II in Tan
Kudu and Vintage Cedar Calf.

I just ordered a pair of StCs (Classic Last) and GGs (TG 73 last) in the same size as my EGs (UK9E)... hope they are compatible! 

 

Scenario 1 - Diversify the rotation

Scenario 2 - Solidifies the commitment for only EG shoes :slayer:

I am biased after spending a lot of money on my GGs and then trying EG and finding from a comfort, aesthetic, and shape/styles that I prefer EG. I dont want anyone to think I am knocking any brand, I just love EG and think they are better for me personally over GG

Give me a couple more months...I have some 'off menu' EG MTO's in the pipeline...

 

Not surprisingly, either does GG.

Nothing wrong with regards to having a prefference, however both shoemakers really do have a lot of great things to offer.

I totally agree guys. I just was giving my opinion. I just got my Sinatras on the MH71 but had to do a last adjustment to make it fit. I find EG easier for my foot and therefore its easy to buy high quality luxury shoes without too much fuss.

Understand, I tend to be more critical when it comes to those shoemakers where their Lasts are more challenging for me. However when it comes to EG and G&G I've been extremely fortunate with regards to how shoes and boots fit from both of these shoemakers.
