    they fit me all exactly the same. in a way, they are the same shoe with a different toe. i wear a GG 11UK in all lasts and they are all comfy as hell. ymmv, but that is my experience.

    Is the toe box space different? Specifically in the DG70 compared to the TG73?

    They all feel literally exactly the same to me. Maybe I have skinny toes?

    I have the same size in all four lasts. For me DG70 is a bit tighter than the others but the reason for that could be the model (punched cap toe).

    Same size with the 70, 71, 73, and 14. The fit differences aren't too significant for me.

    Elongated, so it "feels" slightly longer than the other lasts. I actually found E width to be just fine for me in Deco after a couple of wears, whereas I typically take an F width in G&G.

    do you find the deco instep height any different from the 'standard' line ?

    I own neither AE (nor would I ever. barf) nor Alden, and I dont think I have bought American shoes since I joined SF, but last I did I was 98% of the time a US12, and with some shoes, a US11.5.

    I size an 11 EEE for AE (although it has been a bit), and 10.5 G in GG. Not sure if that helps...

    Yes, to a certain extent. The instep height is primarily why E width doesn't work for me in typical G&G, so the E working for me in the Deco last was surprising, particularly in that the instep (after a couple of wears, mind) was just fine.
