Regular olive fall/winter wool trousers. I like them too. Something I bought at Benetton in Italy almost 10 years ago and have survived the evolution of my wardrobe.

they look nice. What pants are those?

Ok, I understand it. I do not wear much my Thorpes in burgundy Kudu, but I absolutely love them and fit is great. It is fantastic boot. Now, thinking of a loafer (great fit gamble) with Helene in H. Russian too. Hey, just thinking...

I am still not sold on what makes the Deco last special but I am fond of this pair.

I thought about this pair on the End of Line sale. I was tempted, but I promised myself to try on G&Gs before buying them again, as I need to confirm the fit.

I also like the design of this model, but feared that they’d be too long considering my 11.5UK size…

Since my first pairs of dress shoes were Loding and Finsbury, I am comfortable with pointy shoes. As for sizing, they run small. I am a 10.5UK in almost all makers, but the 11UK takes a while to break-in, as the last is narrow. There is no way my feet would fit in a 10.5UK.

Yes, I think it's a matter of being comfortable with such a pointy last. My feet are already fairly big given my regular 11UK size, so I am afraid it would be too much.

Like you said, on G&G I need to size up, so I have to wear 11.5UK. I do have an Oxford and fit is ok.

The thing is last year ago I bought another model on the TG73 last (super summer deal) but the left foot had a weird crease, which was bad enough to make me return them. I don't know if it was an issue with that shoe in particular or if it's my foot that didn't get along well with the last. Hence the need to try them in person, which I haven't been able to do yet.

Anyway, long story. But I hope you enjoy your shoes! It's a beautiful pair.
