    You would most likely want a 12UK G&G

    The 13 US on the Barneys site will actually be a 12.5UK.

    Rain and Inca are two of the widest fitting lasts from Carmina so sizing up half a size would probably be wise.
    The lasts from G&G are similar in fit over the instep and over the mid part of the foot (the width). The difference (also mostly a matter of personal taste) is how you want the toe cap to look like which is the most important variation between all G&G lasts.

    Would any of the G&G experts be able to confirm whether the Grosvenor is still produced on the TG73?

    Thanks

    E of M has them on the TG73. There is a great midnight blue pair on Ebay in 10.5 UK.

    Hey guys, I'm a tad bit worried about fit because of my wide feet. What's more is they're wider than the average further down the feet as well. I'm going to be asking G&G as well but just wanting some thoughts from members as well. Think this is bespoke only material? Or would UK10F/G would be okay? E will definitely be a no no, right?

    I'll likely be attending a G&G trunk show on the 27th. What is the upcharge on MTOs? Do I place a deposit or pay in full once ordered?

    I was aware it's around $200-300 more than RTW.

    That is very wide. Did you measure on a hard or soft surface? Usually measurements are done standing up on a hard surface.

    That sounds like a G fitting at least. Maybe you need to go for 9G or 9.5G. Consult G&G directly for best fitting size.


    At SF?

    ^Yup, at Wilkes-Bashford. I was going to go Vass, but the instep sizing looked tricky, and I'm don't want to buy shoes I can't try on first. G&G looks better suited for lower instep and I can try it on here (and has the nice waists I've been wanting in a shoe). Just wary about the cost as the most expensive shoes I've owned thus far are C&J benchgrades.
