I think we decided on no speed hooks. Here are the specs on the invoice "GG06 last, Size, Natural lining, All blind eyelets (no speedhooks". I remember there was some back and forth over going with the speeds hooks or not vs pull-tabs.

Now I remember that I said I will go with what majority decides.
I've been dreaming of other spectator combinations to add to this one - one spectator is just not enough.
Awesome as ever, @grc1! Agreed that you need more spectators, I have two Walktons myself, and am dreaming of a Vintage Rioja-Burgundy suede combo (maybe another Walkton, perhaps a Gatsby, or some other wingtip setup). Question about your Gatsbys - will you wear these in cooler weather also?
Oh God - there's a sartorial edict about no spectators after Labor Day or something, isn't there? I'll start following it the year I start wearing seersucker.

Hahaha, I actually wear my two Walktons all year long. I was wondering if grc1 would view the colors in his Gatsby pair as four-season, or only warmer temperatures. Just filing some ideas in my head, and wouldn't mind additional input...
Then again, if I do end up getting another pair of G&G spectators in V-Rioja/Burgundy Suede, those would be year-rounders too
What about a kudu/calf or a grain/calf spectator? The SJII with rosewood/cherry calf is spectacular IMO. Personally, a suede/calf spectator would be 'too loud' for me. What do you gents think?
Got both those versions of G&G Walkton Spectators (Chestnut Pin Grain/Vintage Cherry, Vintage Cherry/Cherry Kudu). Love 'em. Wear them year round, pair 'em with suits/odd jackets/casual pants/occasionally jeans
