    They are identical according to Nick, all are inspired by MH71

    I have heard the same from Nick, but I wonder based on other member input, if toe box comfort varies. Either way, I would like to try the MH71 last next...

    MH71 works best for me, everything else feels a bit tighter around toebox (never tried CG06, but TG73 and DG70 in normal width 9E UK definitely is a bit tighter). KN14 would work for me in terms of width, but I'm slightly wider than 9.5D US on the right and 9D close to 9E US on the left, so length is just never going to work on a loafer for me (idle fit the right, then left would slip)

    I would argue that the general fit is the same but much of the variability comes from how feet are shaped differently. As the new saying goes: "one size fits most."

    You should be fine in GG06. I have all four last; DG70 is little tight but TG73 I have to go a half size up.

    There doesnt appear to be much burnishing, but perhaps that's just the photo? If not, did you ask the factory to make them up that way? I requested deep burnishing when I ordered my pair:

    It looks like MTO pairs have more burnishing in general. The RTW models I have seen have always had more subtle burnishing in comparison.

    Speaking of, we need to start a group MTO in the near future...

    i got them from spoo, who got them from a secret source. NIB with trees, and they had the touches of my MTOs, like the tongue was stitched down and some other stuff, unlike the barneys offerings.

    they actually have a very nice burnish, but it did not show in the pic, probably because the lighting was too much.

    Group MTO...watch this space tomorrow. First will be St James II in a suede on MH71. Any ideas? Maybe a Polo Suede with ivory contrasting stitching or linings??
