Hi All,

 

In real life is Vintage Chestnut more of a tan/orange(y) color or closer to a mid brown oak? All the photos I've seen has varied both shade and tone.

 

Thanks

 

EDIT: Found my answer. Apparently I should have researched even more.

Could be either, but I think most have more of an orange tint. I even have a Mitchell where one shoe is significantly lighter and more orange than the other. Using darker brown cream on it has reduced the variation though.

This is up there with the best looking black shoes that I have ever seen! I love the st James II already but between the TG73 and the mods to the st James II style it is truly great!

It's a shame that I don't wear black shoes that often and already have too many. Plus I may need to cut back my shoe purchases. Haha.

Have any of you guys said that before?

Second of the April GMTO's from Nick @ Bespoke-England:

Shoe 2:

Hove: This shoe is a much loved G&G classic not often seen on the TG73 which gives it a sleek appearance. Often this design is requested on a round toe last or a softer square toe last (MH71) but I wanted to offer it on the TG73 because it looks incredible and I know some people like a classic pattern on a sleeker last. I personally wear it in Vintage Cherry Calf and I think this in Vintage Rioja looks fantastic. Details below:

Style: Hove
Colour: Vintage Rioja Calf
Last: TG73 Classic Square
Sole: Oak Bark Single Leather
Trees: G&G Natural Finish Lasted Trees (Optional for £125.00 or £150.00 for Europe countries)
Group Price: £775.00 and £930.00 for Europe countries

To order these in your size please inbox me here or email me: nick@bespoke-england.co.uk and I will explain the order process.

Thanks,
Nick.
