I concur. I believe I've worn every last or tried every last from GG and the only way I found it to work is a personal last adjustment which is costly and it seems like too much effort to make a $1200+ shoe fit. EG haven't had any issues and they fit perfect (still fine tuning the 82 new resin last).

I have yet to try anything on the new resin Last, but then again all of my latest acquisitions have been from G&G. I've been hoarding Kudu lately. LOL

I only have one pair of G&G shoes and quite a few EGs. I have certainly found my EGs on the 202, 82, and 890 lasts to be more comfortable, overall, than the G&G last (I think it's MH71). It's not that the G&Gs are uncomfortable, it's just that I've found the Edward Greens to be that much more so.

 

Even these Malverns, which I very nearly gave up on when I bought them last summer, are now all-day comfortable...

Scenario 1 - Diversify the rotation
Scenario 2 - Solidifies the commitment for only EG shoes icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif 

Been there done that and option 2 is likely result.GG fits very different.
The only brand that has steered me away to any signicant degree from EG is Lobb

Wow, are they really that different in color or is it just the lighting which I expect to be the case?

JL is a great choice, I just find the variety. models, and finishing on EG and G&G to be more to my liking.

Yea purely a preference. No right or wrong here.
Lobb does not have as much variety for sure. Many models do look similar.
I do EG for shoes with broguing bc their brogueing is better (for my tastes anyways).
But for "plain" shoes like captoes, austerity wingtips, plain toes etc... i prefer Lobb. I just think the 7000 last works very well for those shoes.
I do also think Lobb leather is a touch nicer is terms of how soft it is from the beginning but thats just splitting hairs.
EG is still my number one in terms of shoes owned.

Agreed, JL leather is a lot more pliable. I think you've identified where some of their greater strengths lie, not to mention museum calf, and their monks.

I agree with @justinkapur. EG is my preference. But it's not really close in my book. Are you surprised to hear this perspective in this thread?

EG's catalogue is enormous, and they do it right. However, G&G does great work, have great materials and leadership.

Surprised? No

But as fellow shoe enthusiasts we should strive to get the facts right.

EG by the way is my preference as well.

I think the JL Chapel is one of the best monks out there. (coming from someone that owns EG almost exclusively)

Completely due to the lighting. The left shoe, while not in direct sunlight, is very much closer to direct sun than the right shoe, which is in the shade. They're actually quite a bit darker than they appear in this shot.
