Yeah ... ever since discovering Meccariello and Bestetti, and since G&G opened their store on Savile Row where I could try on actual production shoes instead of trial pairs, I've finally confronted the rather embarrassing (and extremely financially/emotionally painful) reality that my entire G&G collection is a size too big.

SO ... I am beginning to embark on a quest of rebuilding/replacing with proper-fitting shoes. Starting with these beauties. A few posts back I had my circle - I'll see about selling those off as well.

There you have it, guys. Be gentle with me, I'm very emotionally fragile at this difficult time. Breaking up is never easy.

Thanks, it's depressing to so many of fine shoes that do not fit.
I was hoping to see Wigmore there in size 10.5. Wigmore on TG73 last is my only G&G mistake. I could not fit in my usual G&G size so I went a half a size up but now they are too long.

@grc1, that is a rough situation. When i go to the up-coming GG NY trunk show this October, i will take the opportunity to get Dean's advice on my MTO sizing. I like my boot fittings, but i did notice a little heel slip on my Hoves...

Thats rather unfortunate.

 

What is your correct size and what size do you have in your inventory?

Finally my Black Oxford Brogues (MTO) have broken and are comfortable!!!

Hopefully these babies will last for years to come (bought back in 2009)smile.gif

It took you 5 years to break in a pair of shoes?...

With the sheer numbers of shoes you have, it would probably take longer.

Did you get the shoes yet? I'm wondering if you could notice any issues with them that caused them to be considered seconds. The reject reason for those were "Good" meaning no obvious flaws according to Dean.

Hmm might grab those Oakhams in black.
post #13049 of 21771
Are the sample shoes still available in the Saville Row store?
