@Handmadeshoes Thanks Justin! After moving to NY, I always feel gutted when I see the sales happening in the UK but glad I'll be back in London for this one!! See you there!
Hi ainnjers, I wear 6.5EUK for 348/358 oxford lace up and for the Marlow I wear 7.5D US. The Lowndes is on the 348 last which is the same as the oxfords I have for C&J however not sure on the difference on the fit vs monk straps
Thanks all for the opinions so far - I've not seen any G&G in the flesh yet so need to check them out asap! @wurger was checking out your quintessential thread and the MH71 does look great!
I'm contemplating my first G&G - black oxford for CBD. The million $ question - which last DG70 or MH71?
Just wanted to share this link with folks on here as I thought it was a good read for those that are not already clued up on shoes (like when I first joined the forum!) Although we know here on SF there are other countries now that produce exceptional quality shoes it is still the English that are more known in the mainstream worldwide for their shoes, of recent years has the demand has increased and we're actually seeing growth in English manufactured shoes which is only...
Phil-Madame Paulette any good from your experience?Cost me my left leg for a suit clean? (Hallak already took my right one! :-)

Regardless of it being a good job with pressing great lapel rolls the $225 for x3 suits all with x2 pants each was a shocker. Need and want to find an alternative, lucky I don't clean often/try...
All, I went to a tailor today to discuss commissioning a bespoke double breasted suit - for the occasion that being my wedding! I don't currently own any DB suits. Leaving things to the last minute (like I usually do!) I don't have much time left to get it done however I have been told it's achievable in time I have left. I looked mainly at H&S which was more in my price range (was told about Scabal but way over my budget) and in particular the cloth I liked was H&S Cape...
SNAP - I've been on that slippery slope ever since @mimo
Brand new unworn pair of Meermin - Linea Maestro Handwelted Plum Museum Calf Single Monk strap UK7 Olfe last. Flush fitted steel toe caps added for toe longevity. Also INCLUDING shoe trees! The first two photos are most accurate to true color. This was part of a group MTO on SF initiated last year and my make up was styled on the infamous John Lobb Vale monk strap. They are unavailable to buy in their standard range and require MTO only. I'm hugely disappointed that I...
