Fine as wine.
Thanks for your input. I will dig more into this thread to figure out if TG73 would work for me. It's looking like it might not though, which is a bit of a bummer.
fwiw, i take the same size in both lasts, and find them both to be supremely comfortable.
I love these.. Not normally a monk fan, but between the Deco last and the vintage chestnut finish.. They are up there for me.
Well done Stitch!
Mh71 fits me well tg73 felt a bit tight
Thanks for your feedback on the TG73 last. Having dug a bit more thoroughly into this thread, it seems like TG73 could either be similar to or tighter than MH71 depending on the particular foot it's on. I think a slightly narrower toe-box, especially at the pinky side of the shoe, would be OK for me, but I'm concerned that the toe-box itself would be too low. I guess the only way to know for sure is to try them on via an online shop. Now I need to decide if I really want to take the plunge...
yeah, as with all shoes, all the information in the world wont nail it down. a try on is necessary to truly get it right.
I find my MH71 tighter fitting in the toe box than other English makes of the same size in standard width
Same here. But everyone's foot is different. I find the GG06 longer or roomier but don't know if I could size down - so I don't buy it.
i found the mh a little tighter too. straightened itself out with a couple of wears on a loafer
I found TG73/DG70 both to be tighter than MH71 in the same size/width
that is the only last i dont have. its the only last i am not in love with.
