Website says they're still hand welted (and I certainly hope that's still the case).
What hotel?
I'm in the same boat as Torsion - I'm gong to buy my first G&G in the next week (before the Bespoke England sale ends) and it's going to be the Oxford.  I don't currently own a plain black captoe Oxford - a serious hole in my rotation - and after beating around the bush (and staring endlessly at Wurger's thread) the G&G is the only plain black RTW Oxford I really like aside from Cleverley which is just a bit more.   GG06 is a nice classic last but I'm going with MH71 -...
@DWF - does Blake/McKay = Blake or Blake/Rapid?

^^^right, like BB saying their shoes are made by Peal and Co when it's obviously C&J. In the case above isn't it obvious that the Purdey's are C&J?  I must be missing something.
Nickel is a little yellower than SS, and a little more subdued than either the brass or SS.  The photos on the website are pretty accurate - have you looked there?
