Has anyone from the U.S. purchased directly from G&G? They ship via UPS so I'm wondering if custom/brokerage fees are included or have to be paid on top separately? Thanks!

I'll have another go.

 

Gable. 

 

MH71.

 

Suggestions for colours:

 

  • Vintage cherry - calf.
  • Navy blue - calf.
  • Espresso - calf

 

Or anyone game for hatch grain?

 

Single leather oak bark sole.

 

Lining?

 

Probably not necessary, but this is what a Gable on the MH71 last looks like. It's just a  superb shoe.

I'm making an earnest effort to hold off doing another Vass MTO until the fate of our Gable has been decided. Needless to say my will power is fading.

 

Gable

 

MH71

 

I prefer Navy, BRG, or even Polo but I'd be open to anything except Cherry, Cedar, Chestnut, or Espresso.

 

Single leather oak bark sole.

Yes some people will droop out of the game but some other might join in who initially did not express the interests. The key is to have model with the last and some pictures and go from there.

Arran in F width on MH71 last should be easy sell.

I propose the following as an F WIDTH GMTO

 

Model:  Arran

 

Width: F

 

Last:  MH71

 

Colour / Material - smooth or hatch grain calf in any shade of brown from light to dark.  So, not green blue or purple and not suede.

 

Sole:  Wensum preferred but not a deal-breaker

 

Lining: Don't care, it's lining.

 

Who's in?????

Double sole looks really nice on Gable.

I bought a pair directly from Dean, I had to pay customs though they did mark package somewhat customer friendly, just not enough (cost of boot was high though so maybe normal shoe is better?)

Not sure how their online store works though as it's through Nick at Bespoke England now I think

I haven't got the chance to break them in yet but my initial reaction on the fit on these adelaides is very good. They sit tightly around the heel, ankle and instep so there is no slip at all when walking and then loose enough in the front to allow the toes to move freely. The color and burnishing on these is simply amazing as well and when shined i am sure they will come super nice. 

Many thanks to @dddrees
, @TtownMD
, @mw313
 and others for recommending this model to me. 













I'm happy that they worked out for you. We all are hear to help and since a few of us know a bit more about GG than others, we are always willing to help in any way we can.

Any thoughts on getting these repaired?

post #18834 of 22588

Cream, polish and brush will get those scuff marks settled down, and will add to the character. No repair will work I`m afraid IMHO. Brush, brush and brush again...

I had to pay about $30 to UPS Brokerage for duty. There are ways to handle that at the shipper, but G&G apparently isn't interested. I believe Nick now works for G&G, along with Karen, in the online sales dept and also runs his own business sans G&G.

Are you sure those boots are the right size? Unusual creasing point

Nick had a huge JL sale so it appears that has been taking much of his time. He's a good guy but it's busy time with sales.

Interesting this thread has severely slowed down recently. Maybe it's time to wear some G&G to get pics going again.

I think it is because it was just the holidays and many of us are waiting for many different MTOs amd GMTOs to come in first.

Give me a few minutes and I'll see if I can post so,e pictures of my most recent pair that I haven't had a chance to post yet.
