Beautifuls color shoes...compliments
What wears elongated green shoes with flood pants?
The overhead, side-by-side does not completely show the difference between the two lasts. In 3D, the 06 appears to have much more toe volume. It's still sleek compared to an old pair of AE I have, and the finishing is again exceptional.
They do both look good. The DG70 does an optical illusion when you wear it. From birds eye, it tapers quite extremely. It always looks great in pics though, and probably to any observer.
Might have to look into a MTO DG70 after all...
looks excellent, and a great side by side last comparison.
thanks. its interesting sure enough. I can imagine some saying the 06 is not sleek enough while others saying the 70 is too sleek and pointy. For me, wearing them In action, rather than studying a static photo, I find them both to be aesthetically pleasing.
They're sleeker than Alden's Barrie...that's good in my book.
^ that's a great comparison actually. Speaking of which wearing the Arran today's DG70 is tight on my bal boot but fits a tad wider on the chukka. Me likey
Nice...that you standing next to your Maybach?
Maybe not the best thread for this question, but has anyone had success getting G&G's reheeled with 'generic' heels? I wonder if their lasts are shaped such that only G&G will have properly fitting ones for replacement? Thanks for the help.
...and if I can glom on to my own non sequitur, would using non-lasted trees warp or otherwise mishape G&G shoes over time? I'm thinking about a used pair, and I want to limit might outlays if I can.
Rothchild on the DG70, Oxford on the GG06, Westminster on the MH71, ST. James II on the TG73.
4 lasts, a story in pictures.
(sorry for the photo bomb)
You will be mine....one day...you will be mine! Great looking shoes!
Are you taking about Stitchy, or his shoes?
JS - does that give you the visual you wanted?
