    I wear UK 12 in all lasts, except I size down to 11.5 in KN14 loafers, but that's not because of the last itself. As Frank says, a proper fitting is of course preferable when investing in premium shoes like G&G.

    So true, I tried recently a loafer in the KN14 in my regular TG73, MH71 size and realized I have to size down to wear those.

    that row of stitching right next to the eyelets are really unnecessary.

    Good point, I agree. Still look great though. I have the same model but pin grain instead of crock, the line doesn't bother me at all, it's barely noticeable (in person) with the pin grain, also the side of the tongue is stitched on that line, I guess with the croc too.

    Just how much bigger would an 11F be than a 10.5E on the TG73, kinda want to offer the pair on eBay and my 10.5Es are pretty solid fit, a little tight on width but length is good. Figure boot would fit with a small tacco insole?
