How about this Jubei for the plain Jane.

G&G Wells

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

in G&G Espresso color, it's really dark that could pass for black.

My plain toe derby days are behind me I'm afraid, it's all about chukkas for me now.

Sure a plain Jane chukka is not for you Laufer?

GG still makes deco black leather, but has chosen to use it exclusively for their Deco line, and is also excluded from GMTOs.

Oic, is it possibly to make deco last on gable still, or we have to stick with the deco range?

I am new to G&G, sorry for my ignorance

@Leaves might answer this best, but I think deco black calf is out from any GMTO order, Deco line specs or otherwise.

You can order the Gable in the deco last of course, even as a GMTO, but there is an upcharge to use it. Note that using the last does not make the model a deco line shoe though, which are made to different standards, and are another price all together...

Thank you for all your information. How the will price increase, and how will it affect mto?

I would be in for a more casual Arran. Ridgeway sole, storm welt, some sort of pebble or hatch grain, MH71

 

Or I might just get those EG Kentmeres..

I wasn't aware of the history, although I am quite familiar with the other shoemaker versions and I have often thought of getting something like this.


So to get the G&G version I would have to go bespoke or could I get this via a regular MTO I wonder?

It's actually a popular design in Italy, it was not a style invented by StC. The style we did from Bonafè (although we modified it) was from the 80s or possibly even earlier. For that style, with the chained Norvegese, you will have to go bespoke.

Correct. New policy from GG.

I should have kept it new and unworn as decoration but it's been through some beating
