Gables is one of my favorite models and i think it´s amazing in real life. 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.
Have all a great holiday and new year
