Gaziano & Girling Appreciation & Shoe Appreciation Theard - Page 458

post #6856 of 12790

This is probably the wrong forum for this question, but then, maybe it isnt.

 

I bought an nice old pair of Grants from a friend and I seem to remember somebody saying something in this thread about a really professional shoe repair service in England somewhere which Tony and Dean Gaziano were very impressed with. (At least I THINK it was in this thread)

 

I would rather not send these shoes back to Dean because I would like to change the single leather sole to a HAF when it is replaced. If G&G are impressed by some cobbler, and if the cobbler does such great work to G&G shoes, well then I don't mind shipping the shoes to UK for refurb.

 

Can anyone remember who the resoling / repair service was that impressed Dean and Tony so much?

 

If this is the wrong place for this post, I apologize.

I have a pair in pigskin and I have 2-3 of my personal friends who have bought Thorpe from me and everyone is very happy with them. Probably the most casual and comfortable of all my G&G. Looks best in grain on a double sole with storm welt in my opinion. But it can be ordered without the storm welt of course.

Interesting, this leads me to wonder if other G&G's can be ordered with a stormwelt mwink[1].gif

The 8.5/9E felt super small. So, this pair of Savoy is 9/9.5E and feels snug but not tight, yet it seems to be creasing strangely...If I measure my feet and convert I get 9 US.




Some creasing may be from previous owner trying on? My savoys are on the tight side but they creased really weird as they had been creased by whoever returned them but probably wore on carpet for a bit. Not a major issues but it's also annoying when shoes don't crease cleanly given my other Barneys G&Gs creased just fine

I love the Thorpe. What a great boot design

For dutch standards, it's pretty bad weather at the moment. Too much snow to wear my "higher" end shoes. Only wearing shoes from my C&J collection at the moment.

Time to catch up with some polishing. Just did four pairs (don't mind the Corthays on the left smile.gif), the rest will have to wait for coming weekend.

 

St James in Vintage Cherry (color doesn't even come close in this pic).

Hayes in Vintage Rioja.

Grant in Racing Green.

Seems to be the week for shoe maintenance. I like the bleaching on the Corthay toe. My Collcuts have the deco bleached toe, and I'm absolutely wary about how I should proceed in trying to polish them.
