    mrbrioni, if they don't fit, I'll take them off your hand for 50% off of what you paid. This of course, in true typical B&S/SF spirit.

    Just kidding, great haul and looking forward to pics.

    Folks for those of you who have both CG06 and TG73 last, do you take both in the same size? I find TG73 narrow in forefront of the foot. I just received Burnhams and wow they are as light as a feathers.

    Thanks in stitches ,

    I have CG06 that I have worn and it seems fine. I am in possession of DG 70 and TG 73 and they both definitely feel tighter. I measured CG06 and TG 73 and length wise they are the same but width wise CG 06 is slightly wider by a couple of millimeters. In addition in the volume of TG 73 on forefront seems lower. Decisions. decisions.

    I guess its different per person. I have 70, 71, one pair of 73 which I still consider too tight. So my other pairs of 73 are half a size larger than my 70 and 71s.

    I don't own any GG06 but have tried the last and I wear a 0.5 size smaller than 70 and 73. My 70 is tighter than my 73:s.

    I am not a John Lobb guy since I wear a size 13, but these Jermyn III Monks were too nice to pass up. I like the lasted shoe trees as well. I was not expecting that. Last time I bought Lobb (1999), trees were not included in most models.
    Does anyone know where I can get recessed (flushed) toe plates (toe-tips) put on?

    Agreed on all accounts - beautiful shoes!

    If you go into John Lobb store in Manhattan they can put them in for you, however they suggest not to do it until you wear out the front toe a little bit before putting them in.

    Folks do not take this a wrong way but we do have a dedicated JL thread so let's keep this relevant.

    Well I have measured DG70 and TG73 lasts and they are about 4mm less in width than CG06 last. This coupled with the lower angle of toe boxes on DG70 and TG73 really squishes my toes. I come to the painful realization that I will have to send what I ordered back to Barneys.

    I know both Dean and Tony have said that all of their last should fit the same but that has not been my case. I need to go up half size from CG06. This just a heads up for those of you considering the purchase for the first time or buying a different last. Be careful do not assume anything.

    I tried MH71 last too and it fits me the same as CG06.

    By the way that DG70 last looks very feminine especially when is made on the plain toe shoes such as chukkas. DG 70 looks good on wingtips though.
