I have been crazy to get this boot in Arran grain.  However, seeing Tallcane´s chesnut Hatch calf I am even more.  Unfortunately I do not have the money to proceed now.

 

My wait will be long.  Not a problem.

 

My fav boot by far, so congrats all of you and hope fit is perfet!!.

Thank you sir and as I have said elsewhere I'm not sure I would want this and the Isham in chestnut Hatch calf as that might be a bit too close to each other. But I can certainly see why you also like the chestnut hatch Isham.​

I have a question - I`ve been told that G&G fit is consistent through the different lasts at the same size - that is an 8 1/2 E is the same in different models and even say the Deco last, and same in slip-ons or laces and boots. I got my Harrow yesterday, and I was surprised it was considerably shorter than my only other current G&G, the Barclay. However, upon trying the shoe, the fit was great, and it would seem that the different in length is inconsequential. Is that the general experience? And is the statement about size being the same amongst lasts generally true?

Yes I felt the same way as you before but yes if you find your size they should all fit the same bud. Minus the toe area space depending upon last to last.

Many thanks to clarify this. I`ve been searching the net, and just fully realized that any G&G model is available for a small premium on a Deco last. Would not a GMTO on a Deco last (as against the full Deco) not be a great idea?

Music to my ears! Always up for a Deco last discussion. What'd you have in mind?

Can you actually do this with a GMTO though?

It's a substantial surcharge. But G&G are looking into maybe allowing some styles to be made up on the Deco last. Nothing confirmed though as far as I know.

No, only as single MTO.

Would anyone be interested in a stingray Gmto?
post #17579 of 21771

Stingray is only available in Sinatra or Cooper - unless I`m missing something, I`m not sure there are any financial advantages of ordering as a group - Deco cannot have GMTO, and the Sinatra would have no advantages as well?

post #17580 of 21771
The new rebuilt G&G website will be up and running soon with some nice Deco lasted stock shoes online. I will also help create some GMTO's on the Deco last. Any requests / ideas at this stage? Maybe even on the new Round Deco last?
