G&G Mailman GMTO

 

Let's Get This Done Before it becomes even more expensive.

 

Model : G&G Rothschild
Last : MH71
Soles : Ridgeway

Welt: Storm
Color : Chestnut Hatch Grain

 

This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling's classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it's tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.


Participants so far, for this GMTO:

Because of the description:

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. ... Who every day go about our lives with duty, honor and pride. ... Rain or shine, snow or sleet, we deliver your mail!

 

 

I guarantee you'll be the best shod mailman on your block. LOL

Maybe you can inquire with GG if they have a ZUG like leather for these, it would complete the Mailman shoe game...

JS, looks nice but what hole does a deco black chukka fill? Trying to picture why I would need this boot in my rotation.

Actually, I like the fact that these aren't made in Zug. I kind of like that they have a number of components which make them good foul weather shoes, yet they still look sort of dressy in a way. I think it adds to their charm so to speak.

Unless you are quite conservative, you can use this chukka with some great jacket & trouser combos, in the SF beloved blue & grey color scheme. This deco black Arran will be on the more formal side of my business casual rotation. I find the chukka to be a kind of plain toe derby evolution, and I will be replacing all of my plain toe derbies going forward...
