    The only two Gaziano & Girling stockists in Toronto are Leatherfoot and John Ferrigamo (a bespoke tailor shop). I don't have any experience with John Ferrigamo but my two orders with Leatherfoot I found their communication to be lacking.

    Great pic. I actually like both, but the Hove looks like a fit summer body, and the Dover is a winter shot after the holidays.

    I can empathize with you. That waiting was always my experience with G&G MTOs. In the end I just factored that service into the price and moved to another maker that delivers MTOs on time (on one order it was even a week early, imagine!)

    Hang in there! You can try emailing the factory.

    I'm contemplating my first G&G - black oxford for CBD.

    The million $ question - which last DG70 or MH71?

    DG 70 is a bit too pointy for my liking, MH 71 or GG 60

    The DG70 needs to be seen in person to truly gauge whether or not it's too pointy for you. If you have never been turned off by a pointy last, then order the DG70, you should be pleased. If not, the safe bet would be the MH71 IMO...

    If you like the almond toe...DG70 is your choice....

    I prefer the TG73 to the MH71...but MH71 is very nice too...

    Thanks all for the opinions so far - I've not seen any G&G in the flesh yet so need to check them out asap! @wurger was checking out your quintessential thread and the MH71 does look great!

    Torsion, just go with GG06 -- it's round but has enough shape and chiseling to make it pop. It's an underrated option here in style cyberspace.

    I agree, I have couple of models on GG06. I never understood SF aversion to round shaped toes.

    I think most of SF are dandies at heart, so the chiseled / almond toed lasts are usually favored. In any case, i don't think it matters what last Torsion pics for his MTO, it's going to be a great looking shoe...

    I wear a smaller size and rounder toed shoes tend too look off. I don't think I can pull off Deco but the DG70 or TG73 works just fine.

    That is valid response. I seem to have opposite problem. TG73 was just too narrow in the toe-box for me, so I went a half a size up and size 11 UK E looks off.
