I'm hoping to modify the Cambridge shoe by adding some brogueing similar to the pair of G&G that kolecho is selling (which I would love to buy but the size is not right for me) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v197/kolecho/R0013103.jpg) but i didn't want to ask this from him if it's not possible. Now that I know it's possible I guess the least I could do is to ask.

 

How does it work when allowed to do some minor changes? I talk to the reseller and he reports back to England to ask them to do the changes? Well, I guess I'll know quiet in time. =)


I'm sure that the official resellers here will answer the questions on modifications but from looking at the link you posted one thing occurred to me. It makes sense to start with a shoe that's as close to what you want as possible so you might also want to go to the G&G site (http://www.gazianogirling.com/content.html) and look under "Shoes/New Designs/New Designs - 2009" and look at the Burlington & Kensington which also sound similar to what you're looking for. (As far as I can tell from the pictures, the Burlington is just a Kensington without the brogueing at the heel - but then again a Cambridge is just an Oxford with the cap toe seam brogued and a Grant is just a Sinatra with a toe medallion - it can be fun trying to reduce the G&G range to basic principles.)

Thank you for offering your help, much appreciated. I've PM'ed you.

Thank you for your answer. Yes, the Kensington and Burlington seems to be almost what I had in mind, except the brogueing in the area around the ankle and the medallions. I think the Cambridge is as close as it gets to illustrate what I want, although the ones you named are also excellent shoes. I'm planning on buying three pairs and wanted to know whether it's a possibility to modify the shoes before purchasing. My picks so far (if modification not possible) I think is:

1. St. James II in TG73, Vintage Cherry/Vintage Rioja

2. Cambridge in GG06, Black Calf

3. Something in Vintage Oak, but not sure what yet. I'm thinking something like Hayes, Hughes or even Burlington.

 

I'm looking for versatility, therefor my choice of Cambridge in Black Calf and something in Vintage Oak.

 

Thank you for your help!

Just a note on color for you. I have the vintage cherry and the rioja - the rioja is much more versatile color wise - it's a dark purple/burgundy that seems to work with lots of fits. The vintage cherry is beautiful but it's pretty darned red and thus is not quite as versatile as the rioja, IMO.

I have the Hayes in Vintage Oak - it works with just about everything I own - being a whole cut I worry about it rumpling in the long run - but after about 10 wearings it's doing fine so far.

Hope this helps.

There is no retailer for G&G in Dallas, though Chris Despos does host Dean/Tony when they come through for Trunk shows. Next one should probably be in about April.

Received my first two pair of G&G. Hayes in Vintage Oak and Burlington in Black Calf, both in TG73 lasts.

Rothschild in Vintage Cherry and Walkton in Vintage Chestnut should be here in a couple of months. Great shoes, just wish G&G could cut the lead time down.

you post pics right now or i call for your ban-ment!

enjoy the shoes btw.

as much as i hate the lead time, as G&G become more and more well known, i find it hard to imagine they could cut the lead time and still put out the same quality shoes with the same attention to detail. even now some allege that they arent the same as when they first came out. that being said, id rather wait longer for a better shoe, certainly at this price point, than wait less for a lesser quality show. my 2 cents.

I was quoted about 4 months in July, the actual order took 6 months total. Just paid it off today.

I ordered some Grants (TG73 Vintage Oak) directly from G&G on 23rd August so today is exactly 5 months to the day since I placed the order and I haven't heard anything about delivery yet. I haven't chased G&G because I know that I'll be away for the next week so there's no point at the moment since I wouldn't be at home to take a delivery but on 1st Feb I'll send an email to ask about progress.

 

I agree with the view that suffering this lead time is preferable to G&G shortening it at the expense of sacrificing quality. Now, if they could shorten the lead time and maintain the quality then that would be perfect.
