    no, my MTOs are 11UK and the ones i got from barneys are an 11.5UK. long story. but they are also a slimmer last. between all the brands and lasts, its not so simple imo to always get the right fit if you are buying online.

    +1 I love these! I wonder how they got G&G to do grey, I asked them to do a shoe in grey once and they declined because the did not do grey.. is this a one off or have they changed their mind and offer grey?

    I went back and forth on G&G sizes and I wasted 3 pairs before getting the correct size.

    Those are fantastic! I am really excited to get mine next month, I sure hope they fit. I will either have the gables/savoy/windsor/westbury for sale in a 9.5 or the biarritz in a 10. Hopefully it's the latter.

    good idea, thank you very much.

    i think there is a good chance i will keep these and have the windsors as well. i mean, even if they are a taaaad loose, for 489 its hard to send em back.


    THOSE PANTS!!!!!!

    I know the feeling im on my 6th pair and had some major issues with loafers and monks the just killed me as soon as put them on. Had them stretched slightly and see how they get on. Lace ups are perfect tho.

    Anyone know if the sizing changes from a TG73 to a DG70?

    Just to confuse the size issue a bit more...my Uppinghams(TG73 last) are UK size 8.5E and fit slightly looser than I prefer. My Rothschilds (DG70 last) are UK size 9E and fit slightly tighter than I prefer.
    Moral of the story...try them on if you can, otherwise ensure you can exchange them. Nick at Bespoke England allows exchanges IIRC.

    solidarity.

    i have heard different opinions. presumably, it depends on the foot of the wearer.
