if you are going MTO, you gots to get the toe taps or nails. AMIRITE!!
Ready to Wear can have Toe-Tips inserted too. Sometimes I receive an email immediately after a web purchase asking me to arrange this. I take them back to G&G and leave them there for a couple of days before I ship them out.
Just got my first pair in the mail from Barneys in SF- where they still seem to have some supply.
Got the grants in midnight blue-9.5. The Walktons (9s) are still on their way.
The Grants are a little scratched up with some areas of mild discoloration. A bit disappointed. Is this typical for the Barney's sale? Or did I get unlucky?
I will likely be returning these in NYC in the next few days if anyone wants em.
Barneys SF has the shoe pictured below, and a Westbury in 9E (9.5US) in oak, if anyone wears that size.
As I mentioned upthread, I have a number of G&G from Barneys from final markdown in size UK 7.5/US 8 that I'm almost certain to return to SF Barneys. I'll just sell for cost (that includes PayPal fees and shipping) or just take them back. Definitely can't keep the Fairmont and Arran. On fence on Walkton, slip on captoe, as well as Lobb Brentwood in New Gold (UK 7/US 8).
Some quick fit pics, they don't look too long at all (pardon the iPhone pics...) :
Interestingly, they are not much longer than my 10.5 UK G width MTO Wigmores:
I was actually thinking this was not going to work before they got here. They are also only a smidgen more narrow than my G width MTO, and snug but not uncomfortable. Quite interesting really, I am tempted to see how a DG70 in my MTO size would measure in comparison.
Definitely getting these in mole suede at some point...
