I'm actually interested in either a Gable or the Jodhpur with the croc/gator strap on either the TG73 or a deco last.

I just did a quick google for this new round deco last and I agree with you - the classic chiseled one is better.


Can anyone provide direct a comparison of the Deco lasts vs. StC Novella last?  Both seem to have additional elongation while maintaining continuity of shape. Wondering about the fit, though.

I've wanted a gable forever.

Can anyone explain why G&G (and other manufacturers) make such a story about different widths?

When i visited the store they said that if i wanted a different width of a standard model i'd need to pay mto prices.

Now it looks like gmto through skoak is going to need several orders of the same width before they will allow. What part of the manufacturing process is this causing a problem in regards to this?

Took a trip today at the GG store in London. Great selection of shoes and super cool guys. We chatted and looked at shoes for over an hour.

I always stress over this too, being an H (eu) or EEE (U.S.) width. It's been explained to me that some manufactures may not have physical lasts for every width in every size for each last model they offer, so in some case, a new one may have to be made. Also, the pattern of the shoe scales differently when the width increases independently from the length, so new patterns may have to be designed.

I think that would explain the price hike for some manufacturers, but i don't think this applies to G&G who have small number of lasts.

 Wow, being an H width must be tough, i'm an F and i'm struggling

I believe as stock models are made off one set of lasts and patterns, wide width would require changing last and pattern of shoe which slows down assembly line?

That said quite a few F widths here, just no consensus of getting a GMTO done


Nice deep chameleon patina, wish we could order them through retailer:

I looked in to this combination with G&G a while ago and they were reluctant to do it because the strap which are one piece take the full length of an alligator skin and only leave offcuts unsuitable shapes for shoes. In fact the straps are curved like a boomerang shape so when wrapped around the boot they lay flush at the front where the boot is angled. However, they said they could compromise and put a joint in to the strap for alligator to keep the price more inviting. I would not mind a joint here because alligator isn't a smooth surface and it won't be seen.
I can get a price if anyone is interested. I'm definitely interested on the Deco

If you can get the price that would be greatly appreciated. Me & mw313 are interested in jodhpurs boot with crock strap we originally seen this in John L jodhpurs boots with crock strap made to order by leather soul store. If you dont all ready know what I am talking about to get an idea you can go to there site & do a search on jodhpur. But G&G or jl both would work depending upon price. But prefer G&G.

Thanks for the photos! Next time I'm in London I'll have to pay a visit and augment my collection...

Actually, I'm H in EU measurements for brands like Vass and Bonafe, for whom F is standard width. For CJ, I am a G. I don't own any GG currently, but have been dreaming about a vintage Rioja Burlington for a few months now.
