What all kudu is there left color wise.

As per G&G Savile row you can do single MTO for many Kudo colors i.e. Chestnut (light brown), Oak (similar to vintage oak), Rosewood (similar to vintage cherry) etc.

Thanks. The make up looks superb.
Will watch with interest if this gets going as I'm seeing myself as a 'maybe' at the moment (E width)

Hello gents,

Am trying to decide between the 'Hayes', 'St James II' and 'Westbury' models. Can I pls solicit your views on:

- versatility (formal v casual)
- what to wear it with
- maintaining the patina
- less likely to date

I work in a workplace with a permanent semi-formal dress code. So I tend to wear predominantly black trousers/navy and khaki chinos.

All are on the TG73 last. This'll be my first pair of G&G...


Westbury


Hayes


St James II

Just to give you some motivation, IMO there is no better first pair than the iconic St James

post #19926 of 21764
They are all Oxfords so don't think they differ much in terms of formality.

I love my St James II in vintage cherry and they are my first pair of G&Gs. However, the colour doesn't work with dark coloured trousers so may not be as versatile as vintage oak or vintage Rioja.

But then it doesn't really matter which pair you choose as I'm sure once you have your first pair many more will follow 😄

As per @Chowkin, what do you wear with the St James? Is the cherry too 'light' to go with dark trousers?

Don't let the lighting in the picture deceive you - they look fabulous outside but I think they could be fairly muted inside- I like to pair them with Grey or Navy trousers. I think @grc1 posted quite a few fitted pictures on here if you want to have a look

Doubtless this'll be the first of many. Really impressed with the beveled waist and fiddleback sole.

No one stocks G&G in my country, so will need to take a leap of faith and order without first trying. Saw a pair (Kudu/ cherry calf) St James in the wild. Unfortunately, Kudu is in limited supply so no GMTO. Hands down, that'd be my first choice.

I have a pair of St James II in vintage rioja on the TG73 last.

 

I wear them with navy, grey, brown tinged and P of W suits. They go with pretty much anything, except I guess black.

 

Doubtful that such a classic design will date.

 

Oh, and they look fabulous.

I would say St James 2 own 3 pair very very versatile shoe vintage cherry goes with every thing minus black, kudu one is very versatile also & Pearl grey is little limited.

Yes, the tan kudu/vintage cedar St James II on MH71 also goes with all of the suits I mentioned above, although perhaps not quite as well with navy

 

I went black with my first pair of G&Gs, vintage rioja for my second, and left the kudu to a bit later.
