    I don't recognize the G&G Lasts like I do the EG Lasts.

    What Last is this on?

    Is it TG73?

    This model Gaziano & Girling Thorpe
    [​IMG]


    In this color Chestnut English Grain

    [​IMG]

    Since we are in the early stage the specifications are still being hammered out, the details in bold have been agreed upon.
    Initially I opened this to the E width but if there are 6 people interested in F width we can have F width GMTO.

    Last = either GG06 or MH71
    Width = E width.
    Color = Chestnut English Grain
    Soles = Double leather soles
    Eyelets = Blind eyelets.
    Welt = To be determined Flat Welt or Storm Welt ?

    If you are interested, please send me PM.

    All three are winners. I like Canterbury too, especially for its wensum soles.

    Hi all, my first post in the forum and wish to purchase my first GG. The following are my feet measurement:
    Length - 27 cm
    Width - 11 cm 4,3" (i believe its an E width ?)

    I fit perfectly in a Carmina Robert Last in size 9 UK.

    I really like the MH71 last and wonder if i would love the fit, please advice. Thanks you

    I wear UK 9 F(wide) in G&G MH71.

    I have UK 9 normal width in Carmina Robert Derby shoe but they are a bit tight at the ball of my foot. So I recently bought some Carmina Famous Balmoral boots (thanks to Skoab) in a 9 1/2 - much better around the ball..

    Thats the tricky part about leather shoes though.. Carmina Robert last Derby was a tad tight for me at the beginning, but now, its easily my go to shoe.

    I always check GGs from skoak too, but they only have E width for all their GG ?


    So if i take a 9 UK carmina robert, reckon a 9,5 UK GG MH71 should be fine for me ?

    Normal recommendation is you go half size down for G&G from your US sizing but the size I gave you worked for me. In reality should also work for you also but you have to try shoes on to nail your exact size. So just use the info as a guidance nothing is 100%
