    U throat.

    Is the 10.5 too tight at the heels or too tight at the balls/metatarsal area? maybe 10.5F will work better than 11E.

    10E for me is loose, 9.5E is fairly tight at the balls of foot, and 9.5F is okay (and Tony said I should be 9.5G)...

    EDIT: maybe contacting G&G directly and ask them if they could determine your size by sending them your foot imprints?

    nah, 10.5 is too tight everywhere. not even a question. the 11 is perfect, must be something about the shoe, maybe the throat like you said.

    Seems that dudes are finding faults with shoes intended for fitting and not keeping. Strange to me.

    Ok, let me rephrase. By default the Deco Black in very subtle. If you don't want any fading it's just plain Black Calf.

    i just want to make something clear in case there was any confusion about my posts. the "trial pairs service" that nick at bespoke offered me are provided as a courtesy for those placing MTO orders. he has been very kind, patient and helpful throughout the whole process. if you need any further info please feel free to contact him, im sure he can explain it in more detail, and tailor the process to each situation.

    I don't understand the problem with addressing fit issues on shoes sent to, well, address fit issues.

    I was referring to the comments regarding the finish and "blotches" and stitching.

    My G&G St James (MH71) are very hard to squeeze in too, but once in, fit and support is good... have yet to try other G&G shoes..I was wondering if they would all be difficult to fit into. Got a wholecut coming soon so we'd find out

    it seems its that particular shoe. also, some people have had no problem with it. i guess its a combo of foot shape and the opening of that particular shoe.

    either way keep us posted on the wholecut!
