Does the bleaching for black deco calf leave brown or grey tones? For example JubeiSpiegel's wigmores:

I can tell you that it looks like a muted red/brown that is showing up from underneath:



I will try to take a pick of it under direct sunlight later for you.

Looking to do a Wigmore next and wondering why you half size up on your boots?

I think we should give Nick ideas for fee-free monthly MTO. I am thinking about something in black pin grain? Anybody has any other suggestion?

I would, but I'm holding off give any ideas until I finish my current MTO frown.gif

I would be interested in a black calf Sinatra on the TG73 last in the future though. Should be the last black shoe that I will need...

The more pictures I see of it, the more stunning it gets. Was there an upcharge for getting deco calf on your boots?

Flake...it just seems to work out that way for me. Fit is such a personal thing as evidenced by so many threads. All of my G&G outside of 2 pair of loafers on the KN14 last are boots in DG70, MH71 and TG73....I do have flat feet and maybe the extra half size up helps in the toebox for me. I think I fall between sizes anyway so in boots I can get away with it. So I wear 10.5UK in the boots and 10UK in my loafers. You'll only really know once you try them on for yourself.
