Cross Post from the Skoak Thread, seeing if we can make this GMTO happen:

So far interest has been shown by the following, we need 5 participants in the same width to get make this GMTO official:

I was told that you have to get it in the Deco last in order to get the Deco black calf when I requested an MTO.

All i know, is that I have a MTO Wigmore from a couple years back on the TG73 last in Deco black calf, and any time i have inquired about it recently (with two different vendors) they have confirmed GG was ok with it at no up charge.

It would be good to have @Leaves confirm this though, so we can more forward with the specs...

Just curious, anyone else here also go in on Skoak's pre-order for the Chestnut St James II in their new pattern? Only a little over a month and a half left before delivery. Well in theory :)

No but I wish I had...

I placed an order for a St. James in vintage cherry, just a month before they announced the new pattern. Now i wish someone would have let me know to wait for a month, because the new pattern looks great...

The good folks at Skoak reached out to me right after I placed my order to inform me about GGs new pattern and whether or not I wanted to choose that option. Initially I wanted to keep the original pattern but after looking at images of the new one I quickly changed my mind. Since this will be my first dive into the high end of the shoe range I'm anxious to see first hand the craftsmanship of a $900 shoe.

Dang, I didn't realize those were on the new pattern or I might've jumped in.  Oh well missed opportunity I guess.  

post #14171 of 22019
Is the new pattern on the heel design only?

There's no surcharge for Deco Black. There is however a surcharge for about 2500 SEK ex VAT to use the Deco last for non Deco styles, this is a recent policy in order "not to dilute the Deco collection".

That works for me, the Deco last is a little too much for me anyways. Thanks Leaves... fistbump.gif

Do G&G shoes/boots have a stiffener in the arch region like EG does?

I don't know for sure, but it sure feels like it. The arch holds it's integrity quite well, which is commendable in light of my fallen arches...
