Going once, going twice... anyone want the pair of Biarritz, vintage Cedar, size 8.5 (on the shoe) best for a US 9 at cost before I sell/return?

The Gable's are tight across the vamp, and a little tight in the toe box,.and the Westbury's fit pretty darn well suprisingly, they might be a touch long, however they're pretty close.
Let's see what tomorrow brings with the Savoy's....Gosh this is so confusing!

great news, mr. B. glad its workin out for you.

Have seen two pairs, the store manager at Skoaktiebolaget has them but in MH71. They are designed for the TG73 so the "cap toe" isn´t forming a V on HM71, quite strange that a company like G&G doesn´t adjust the pattern to the last in question. The second pair is from Davidsons in Racing Green, a spectacular color in real life.

Nice reply, this is the right way to disagree. It's just my personal taste, my comment was harsh but I strongly dislike caps in monks and adelaide style shoes of any maker including EG, Lobb, Vass etc. and that particular G&G model is unfortunately adorned. I had the Vass Italian Oxford and sold it, I felt uncomfortable just looking at it, just find this style odd.

I do like the V cap and I'm really interested in chisel classic styles lately. I hope to have a good year (God willing) and I will save for my current dream shoos, all in black just like the photos.

The Rogers



Holden



Cliffe




Have all a great holiday and new year

I have the opportunity to get the Windsors too. If you had to choose, which one would you pick?

Legit socks Spoo!  I like the trouser length as well.

I would like to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone here at Styleforum! It's been a great year for me and Bespoke-England with hours of enjoyment reading and sharing your comments and only hope that more guys join in this thread. It's the Number 1 thread on here!

I will be launching a monthly "Made to Order" limited edition shoe each month of 2013 without the extra MTO charge which will give you an opportunity to advise to what you would like. Hopefully creating some not yet seen shoes. So keep looking out for my suggestions and add any extras you would like to see.

Happy Christmas!
Nick.
