    To those of you who have shoes on this last, how much did you size down? I read in one instance that someone actually used their normal US size for this last.

    I wear most always a 9.5/10 and I took the 9.5/10. The 9/9.5 was crippling. Narrow as shit though - if you have a wide foot you may want to reconsider.

    i wear 9.5/10 and i had to go up to 10/10.5 in TG73. strange, since my foot is pretty narrow and i can usually take even D widths without sizing up

    I've heard that G&G made some RL shoes. I didn't believe it but maybe they do!

    No, they are made by G&G - but the last number is what I am questioning. 99 percent sure its the 73.

    Leffot's Steven Taffel told me the Narvells were ordered by Ralph Lauren in the UK D width not their standard E width. This might explain the sizing up experiences mentioned

    I would agree with Luk-cha if he used the word similar...not same. I find the look of the TG73 last to make my shoe look a bit longer (a typical distinction when comparing G&G to EG lasts) The TG73 is more chiseled, more squared...and roomier in the toe box. I find the 888 last to be a tad bit narrower. I wear a US12D in other brands and likewise, the same on the 888 & TG73 lasts. If I ordered an EG shoe on the 888 last in US 12D...I would do the same on the TG73 in size US 12D The 888 was a prototype for what would become the 888's true successor...the MH 71...and its more squared and chiseled cousin...the TG73 As to the RL Nevell. I do not know which last was used...but it can be made available through G&G's MTO program as the G&G Regency

    Yes, this is true. The RLPL Narvell is in the UK D width which is pretty narrow. If you get a pair made by G&G in the TG73, you can choose either D, E or F.

    The F will fit a wide foot well.

    I have a really high instep and I thought G&G would benefit me in that respect. I never considered myself to have wide feet either. I usually wear a 9.5/10, however the shoe that I wanted only had a 10 available. I got my foot in it but the arch and instep was so tight. I could barely get the throat to come close to closing upon tying them. I was told that I would probably need a wide because the length was just fine, but I kind of felt that getting a TG73 in a wide would make the proportions look weird and defeat the purpose of a sleek shoe. I was bummed, but at the same time it didn't make sense to me because I have never ever needed a wide in anything else. C&J, Barker Black, Paul Smith, EG, Corthay...

    Who knows, I vary so much from shoemaker to shoemaker. I wear 10.5 in Corthay, 9 in Alden, UK9 in C&J UK9 in EG...

    From my understanding, and afet discussing the matter with Tony Gaziano, all their lasts should size equally. I.E. if you are a 10 in MH71 you should be a 10 in TG73 and so on.....
