I tol ya already... insane, NAMOR.
NAMOR is the boot kopapatomus of SF of late.
ha! another name could be "moron who ordered wrong size"
For other's education, what size are you in Alden or C&J (a more common brand), what size did you order in GG and what size should you have ordered?
I am a TTS 12D and ordered the UK11F. I need an UK11.5EorF in the TG73.
G&G TG73: UK11.5E
C&J 341: US12
C&J 348: US11.5
C&J 240: US11.5
EG 202: UK11.5/US12

I so sad. Earlier this week I picked up the Northcote but it was a half size too big. Would love to average out the two sizes. I need a shoe fairy
Holy shit did you just invent that name? I love it and want it for my own.
Really? I see you more as the koppleupagus of SF.
Not the biggest G+G fan but those are very nice. Congrats!!
Just a question. What brand of Italian Norvegese/Bettanin looking shoes has a fleur de lis as its brand decal on the sole?
You better step up your game, boi. Kopping ties doesn't get you the title of kopapatomous. been had boots. Cordovan, calfskin, black, brown, wingtip, captoe. I been had
Thanks. I feel the same about G&G. Their boots on the other hand are just off da hook!
Perhaps, but it illustrates a common misconception: There is no absolute standard for last sizes and there is no absolute equivalency between last models.
Maybe...maybe...a G&G TG73 in your size equals a UK 11.5./ but it begs the question(s):
First, which UK11.5?
Last models around the world have their own idiosyncrasies. Whether it be a UK or US or Chinese 11.5, the chances they it will be the same length is nearly nil. And none of that addresses width.
Any assumption of equivalency is wishful thinking. Rough equivalency maybe-- "good enough for government work," "can't see it from the highway" equivalency perhaps. But in the end, it's mostly imagination.
More than that, if G&G decides they need to replace the TG73...not for styling reasons but simply to replace lasts that are wearing out...they almost certainly will take the opportunity to redesign the last model somewhat. This has been known to change the fit of a particular model--length and/or width. Of course they could, at that point, simply rename (renumber) the model, but then all the true believers would have to start over again frantically recalculating size equivalencies and the manufacturer would lose customers who had liked that particular style.
