In fact I've never seen anyone worn a pair of gaziano shoes in real life. Such is the pathetic nature of my life as a hermit.


unless we all come together and get some for ourselves when more is available. then we all can see some everyday

Can anyone comment on how is the creasing for Bramhall in calf?  I worry about the each punch in the detail being a nucleation point for creasing.

 

From these pics, it seems like it could be normal to severe.

Being a wholecut there is obviously more creasing as opposed to say my Rothschild however the "cap" shall we say is further forward than it looks so that minimises it at the front.

I will try and post a bent foot picture tomorrow to show where they fall

Why would there be more creasing for a wholecut than a pieced cut?

Gents,

Can anyone comment on which G&G last best accommodates a high instep? FWIW I have my eye on the TG70...

Thanks!
post #14511 of 21772

They all fit the same in the instep.

I take the same size in MH71, TG73 and DG70. Others have had fit issues with TG73 because of toe box.

I have a relatively high instep and find all lasts fit similarly in that regard (which is to say not a problem for me) and like badsha take the same size across the range.

post #14514 of 21772
Thanks gents. For reference, the best RTW fit I've found is Edward Green's 82 (ie, Chelsea). Without wanting to start yet another last comparison discussion, can anyone comment on how G&G compares just in relation to instep?

Just in from Bespoke England - vintage oak Mitchells on the deco last.

Can you just request a deco last to be used for a regular MTO without the Deco upcharge?

There is an upcharge for having a non-Deco model made on the Deco last on an MTO basis.

G&G do have a couple stock models on the Deco last that are priced the same as their non-Deco stock lines - if memory serves correctly, they have a vintage oak Sinatra, a midnight blue Mitchell and a vintage rioja Warwick.
