I caved and picked up the Wigmore in Rioja/Burgundy grain. I've been coveting this particular boot for some time and the chance to get it at any discount was too difficult to pass up. They'll be my first pair of Bal boots. At least I held strong and didn't add a pair (or 2) of St. James II to that order, though now I'll likely just start obsessing over them now that I didn't kop.
Although I've always wanted an Austerity wingtip, a few makers, including EG, do a pretty good job. However, the TG73 does provide the snug fit that I light slightly better than the 82/888. I also prefer something different from dark oak since I have a number of shoes in that range. Maybe next year a burgundy Connaught will pop up.
The Oakham in racing green definitely looks nice but for my wardrome, the color would bet better suited on the shelves than my day-to-day wear...
Arran is also nice but the D would kill my feet.
Congrats to those who pick up shoes! Nick has been great to work with. I owe my first G&G (Wigmore) to him!
