Was never G&G. Was offered by Bespoke England.
Quote: Original manufacturers' repair department could turn down the recrafting job and welts are not always replaced. Calling the rewelting of GY welted shoes "easy to fix" is an overstatement; basically they had to put the shoes through the same assembly line for the recrafting.  That is not easily achievable at your local cobbler.
