    A member recently was selling a pair of antibes brand new in a beautiful color, I remember very well, they were mi size and thought about it, he didn't posted pictues wearing though.

    btw, (question for anyone who knows) do G&G loafers fit in the same as oxfords or is better to size down?

    thanks

    Hopefully ill have some G&Gs on mah feets tomorrow. Delivery is expected tomorrow... gotta say im pretty stoked. Got the Hoves on the DG70 last in vintage oak.... pics to come thursday! Hoping the size works out...i saw some posts that suggested a 10 in the lobb 7000 would warrant a 10.5 in G&G.

    pointless post without pics, but im excited. had to share.

    Does that apply to all lasts? I own a couple of CJs in the 348 last (Westbourne/Lowndes), size 8.5. I am now looking to buy a pair of GG Gable in the TG73 last. Question is whether I should go up half a size or stick with 8.5? Based on the article linked below, the sizing translation may not always be a slam dunk.

    The only store carrying GG where I live did not have the TG73 last in stock, so not been able to actually try it out myself.

    I had to go up a half a size from the 348 last to the TG73.

    I asked Nick the same question last month, and he mentioned that the KN14 fits the same size as all the other lasts, and incidentally has the same soft square toe of the MH71. I ended up including a pair of St. Tropez vintage pine in my order.

    Thanks for your help, I'm asking because sometimes even in the same size and last loafers are looser, sometimes enough to downsize. According to what he said, looks like this is not the case. Thanks
