    Harry,

    I don't think my collection is as filled out as yours. But I feel you. I don't really NEED new shoes. And have been out of acquizition mode while I seek out that which will suit me best.

    So far nobody beats G&G for me in terms of shape. Do think about the length of the Deco last before you pull the trigger. It is not shy and I predict you will either love it or hate it on your foot. Although it seems to me your feet do well in long lasted shoes, no? The AS 724 (Moore) is pretty long.

    I tend to try and size down (within reason) if the shoe seems overly long. I have a G&G Hayes 9.5D in TG73 and Rothschild 9.5E in D70. Figured I'd go with a 9.5 E in the Papworth. I like the Papworth because I think the toe cap and the adelaide style will serve to minimize the apparent length of the shoe.

    It's a truly stellar shoe.

    It sounds like you know how it will fit you too. My understanding is that the deco is just a wee bit longer than TG73.

    I think you should order it tonight so I don't have to wait for months on end to see it on your foot! :fistbump:

    I have found the Deco last to be longer than the TG73 & MH71s, and for fits tighter in the toe box

    If you have two pair in the same size, can you give comparative length measurements of the outsold, heel to toe.

    Gdot The Finsbury looks great! I don't have any shell in my collection....might need to be addressed? I like polishing my shoes too much!
