Whatever width you do there has to be 6 of them. If you have more as long it is in the same width your fine, but nothing but that width which you have 6 of.

So 6 & more of same width is what the new rules are then?

Right all same width, this is why the more narrower and wider width feet people will no longer be able to tag along.

I still don't get how different widths are a problem but sizes are not.

1. When there are 6D, any extra E is fine
2. When there are 6E, any extra D or F is fine
3. When there are 6F, any extra E is fine

That is what concerns me. I thought that maybe he just used consecutive in the wrong way, but i guess that is possible. We will have to wait and see what @Leaves says after seeing these comments.

 

I think it is more that there must be 6 pairs or more in any width to be able to produce it at the GMTO price, and there really are only chances of that for E and F based on what I have seen, but I could be wrong and hopefully we will get a further clarification of this.

I honestly think it's less about the hassle and more about streamlining batches of shoes. The different widths cannot use stock patterns, whose proportions are thrown off when the shoe gets wider but not correspondingly longer.

I think it's fine, but sucks for us F width folks. What I'm more surprised by is how many of you are straight up E width in GG; from my experience (just trying on, mind you) the G&G E runs narrower than other makers'. I found it narrower than EG's E width.

I need a support group for all my F width G&G brethren so we can run GMTOs by each other.

You know the funny part is I take 8.5 Uk on EG & 9Uk on G&G both are on E width I had no idea that EG E width is more narrow than G&G

EG 82 fit me great in 7.5E
G&G MH71 fit me perfectly in 7F. Like, incredibly well.

I'm not convinced I can fit the TG73 and DG70 in the same size, despite what people say, because of how aggressively the toe box tapers.

No question G&G is narrower in E width than EG. Better to go up in width than length, IMO.

Makes sense I am 9.5US I take 9UK on G&G Tg73 last & 8.5UK on EG 606 & 890 last I don't see myself going down to 8.5UK on G&G. For some reason I can go one full size down for EG.

I have not tried MH71 last have few G&G shoes order on that last size 9UK but take 9UK on TG73 so we shall see. But that's the general recommendation I have gotten from people.

yea i guess you could ask around and we could make a list of everyone's widths so we can organize GMTOs in that way.

I go down a full size for EG too, but that probably is because I am a very narrow foot.
