Ok, just got the official email from Nick, confirming the changes to GG's MTO and shoe trees for all shoes policy. It looks like Nick will be implemented in a weeks time.

Having said that, any other GMTO ideas, while we have the time?

speaking of MTOs, here are a pair of mine from nick @ BE.

@JubeiSpiegel the medallion was added as part of the MTO. copied from the hayes i believe.

That's a great pair Stitchy. I'm saving my next suede order for a chukka in dark brown.
Always wanted one, I blame 007...

GG new changes are whack

The shoe tree policy is odd.

The rest seems to be in line with what other companies have been doing I guess... confused.gif

G&G might as well take away our guns too (I don't own one this new policy just feels obtrusive)
post #11156 of 11779

I agree...I don't like the new policy.

 

I can buy a pair of Saint Crispin's and fully customize it and with trees for around the same price as a benchmade G&G with some leather changes.

 

RIP OFF on G&G's part

I'm up for anything interesting in dark browns or dark antique reds in the uppingham, st James II, or Wigmore food groups.

Don't worry. I won't be suggesting my usual black suede Adelade idea this time. Already scratched that itch!
post #11160 of 11779

So...in terms of price

 

an MTO pair of G&G's changing leathers, soles, and last will cost approx $1150 for the shoe + $245 for the MTO upcharge + $150 for the trees = $1545

 

an MTO pair of G&G's with all the above + minor design changes will cost approx $1150 for the shoe + $490 MTO upcharge + $150 for the trees = $1790

 

 

I can buy a pair of fully customizable Saint Crispin's for between $1650 to $1710 for a handmade hand welted shoe with whatever changes/choices i want and it comes standard with trees....

 

 

$490 is a huge upcharge for "minor design changes..."

 

 

Maybe they fucked themselves over with this new factory expansion and this is to help out with a decrease in profitability....

 

Their upcharge for MTO is out of line with competitors now and the mandate that you MUST buy shoe trees for an MTO is unheard of...

 

if anything an MTO should come with the trees...or at least be offered at a discount from the standard price
