    Thanks Nick for that last comparison. G&G only looks elongated in front/side pictures but is really not the case in person or from a top-down view. I like MH71 the best; DG70 toe cap size seems to be ill proportioned.

    BTW, the proportion of that Deco's toe cap design looks too small in my opinion.

    I found it works really well with my narrow feet... Now if only that order would arrive.

    Maybe it'll be a present when Tony gets here for the Autumn trunk show.

    There is another post a few back with the different lasts labeled which shows it from the other angle. Don't know if it's on another page usually because I set my post count per page to 40. There it's on the left though. Makes me feel right.

    as the big man said VO is perhaps G&G or EG's for that matter most versitle color as it can be lightened or darkened depending on situation, the trouble with VR is that it is a black antique so IMO it does not make it as versitile as VO whihc will be a dark borwn antique - so it should be easier to dress up or down depending on you
