    Quick one as I have zero G&G experience.
    Would the Gable in 10.5US work if I am a 9.5E in most EG /CJ lasts?
    Thanks

    What do you mean by 10.5US? You mean a GG size 10?

    Wrongly assumed they would be 10.5D ( Barneys)...

    The GG double monks are nice, but I think the JL Chapel is still the best of the breed. I think the JL last suits the style a lot better

    if they still are sizing down a half size, so the GG shoe will be a UK 10, and you are a UK 9.5 in CJ, ime it should fit you.

    I'm thinking about getting my first pair of G&G shoes, but am unfamiliar with the lasts. Does anyone know how the GG06 compares to any of EG's lasts? Also, any advice on sizing? I'm an 8.5E in most EG shoes, 9D in almost anything American, and 8 in UK.

    Also, how red is G&G's shell burgundy? I was hoping to get something that leans towards the brown side of the spectrum, but it seems they only offer one shell color?

    G&G sizes exactly same as EG. GG06 is slightly narrower than 202 in the toe box. In terms of toe box width, IMO 202 > GG06 > 82 > TG74.

    Man did you win an IPO lottery or had a fat bonus last year? All these bespoke and shoes lol

    I have UK 7.5E in GG06 and EG 202. In DG70 and TG73 i have UK 8E, no more EG lasts for reference.

    8.5E is most likely your size. Assuming oxford type shoes, I feel opening of GG is narrower (I have high instep) for the same size as EG. heel is smaller, toe box is wider. GG is MH71. EG is 82 and 888.
