    Mr Brioni,

    Very impressive list of shoes - post SF. Can I ask why no AS, Crispins, Corthay and Vass?

    Here's someone else collection:

    That's a lot of EG... I didn't even know they made cowboy boots (center column, bottom row, center pair)!

    Well, I don't feel so bad with my 'collection'

    I didn't think so.


    But your right, lack of colors as mentioned in the blog are a drawback. I wouldn't choose a number of shoes he choose. But hey, overall I think it's still pretty impressive.

    defo agree here. i think a wide shoe with a chiseled/pointy last would have to be done bespoke or the proportions will be off and look odd. imo.


    HOT DAMN!

    dont resist


    no kidding. damn that is cool.

    Not expert, just suffering from wider feet like some people here. I am measured G width by Tony. And Dean thinks TG73 style toe shape will be off proportion for my order.

    I don't like Deco last at all.

    This would be a difficult proposition for me, as it would leave me with no lasts that I like.

    I am personally content with my G width size on the TG73 last, but I will now be apprehensive on the other lasts. If I took Stitchy's advice, I would own no GG shoes.

    I appreciate the input nonetheless...
