Thanks, maybe they have the same shade for calf.

It is light, but I use it on Chestnut hatch to good effect.

There are no springs, just a hinge between the main part and the heel unit. They are proper bespoke lasts - they even have the person's name on them. Makes sense they would be harder to insert than sprung lasts, but bloody hell...!

Thanks, I'm currently working on an order for some shoe care stuff I think I'll pickup a small container.

This is what I'm using on vintage chestnut, which isn't a far cry from vintage cedar - if anything, the cognac clair is perhaps a bit light for chestnut, so might be an even better match for cedar.

Hi guys,

For my Vintage Cedar Gables (which date back to the Barneys sale days) I use Saphir Cognac.
It brings out the reddish tones in the Cedar.
Fawn is for Vintage Pine, in my opinion.

Comparison of Deco Last and MH71. 


Vintage Rioja? The vamp on the deco is a little bit elongated.

Quick snap of my pickup yesterday: vintage oak Antibes on a bespoke last. Beautiful leatherwork and they fit like a glove.

J Fitzpatrick had a lovely dark brown boot in 12.5, sadly too large for me. Not much else in the big sizes.

The Hoves and the JF boot were the top picks. Also some great shoes on display in the queue!


Oh that is great to know. I wonder if there is still a way that I could get any of those pairs now that the sale there is over. Maybe they would be willing to ship?

 

any pictures of those few in the large sizes? I wonder if that raised seam whole cut is the Gable.

They will definitely run the sale through email after the one in London. Historically, it was handled by Nick of Bespoke of England. Prob worth shooting him/them an email.

There were two adelaide brogues: a cherry St James II and an oak Chesterfield (second), both on TG73 which didn't quite suit me. I believe the shoe with the raised seams was indeed a Gable, and not to my taste. There was another shoe in the same bespoke last as my Antibes, a yellow austerity brogue which was also not to my taste despite the excellent fit.

Does G&G still make "kent" style shoes? I will be in London the last 4 days of May and am looking forward to going to their shop.
