The more I look at it, the more I think that pic is of highland grain.

I'll take some swatch pics when I get home...

If it is that's what I want. This will most likely be my last G&G pair.

You know, I only have about two more GG models that I really want. This might be sacrilegious to say in this thread, but I feel comfortable with the amount of shoes I have. I have been on SF long enough to know what I like, so I don't experiment as much as I use to...

So besides GG what else do you currently own?

I have some AE's from the old days, i enjoy their loafers and just don't feel like paying more for this type of shoe. I plan to collect some unlined EG chukkas to accompany my Westminster, but nothing else really called to me at the moment. I have tried and failed blind buying other brands like C&J, VASS, Alden, etc. So i have learned to stick with what i know, for now...

Here is comparison shot of brown Highland grain & brown pin grain (with a penny for reference):



Pin grain is really small, i think it's the highland grain. As a side note, the highland grain swatch is very smooth and malleable, the pin grain is a little stiff in comprison. I leave the rest to you good sir... bigstar[1].gif

JS you are correct it is the highland grain, I will make the change. Thank you.

I think Walnut CC and British Grain are identical in color. Ullswater has straight almost balmoral broguing on side of the shoes. I would say they are pretty comparable.

Personally I like Ranger Mocs and Boat shoes from Rancourt. They're extremely casual and very comfortable. I have one pair of their loafers, but I'm not much of a loafer person. With one foot a half size bigger than the other this is a hard fit for me anyway. So I also haven't had any desires to get something like this from GG or EG either. I've been fairly lucky buying blind for the most part with a few from C&J, Vass and Alden. But I think I've stuck primarily with their more easier to fit Lasts when doing so. 

 

I've been buying mostly EG of late, but I've had an itch to get something a bit different lately. So I've been looking at a few GG models lately.

I just ordered the MTO Arran Thorpe, I missed out on them last time and as this order comes with speed hooks perfect for me. I saw a pair in the G&G shop yesterday and they look fantastic. With EG boots I'm fine with an E after trying on shoes in G&G I went up to an F. Is this most people's experience that you would go up a width with G&G v EG? Cheers.

Apparently G&G are discontinuing mahogany shoe trees. Why would that be? I am not a fan of the natural finished option.

It's basically a hassle to stock several lines of shoe trees. We have five different colors. It's... challenging.

I should clarify, I don't know if that's actually the reason, just speaking from my personal experience as a retailer.
