you nailed it mr. Booth

I love some G&G styles, but they just don't fit me great. Kill my feet, can't wear them for more than a couple of hours at a time. For the money you're not getting the construction quality of St. Crispins, you're waiting longer for orders, and the price of resoles is much higher (more than double), and they don't accommodate fit issues like St. Crispins does. No brainer in my opinion.

pB - what do you mean by accommodating fit issues? I'm assuming you can tell them generally what needs adjusted and send the pair back?

Yes, they will assess the fit and make adjustments to the last.

excuse my ignorance, what is the difference between customised lasts and bespoke? is it just that the customised last can only be used for RTW models?

post #2197 of 3058
Customized is essentially glueing pieces of cork on an already made last to get it to fit you. Bespoke is the last is made especially for your foots dimensions. At least this is how I understand it

But for bespoke, G&G is way better than SC.

I have been waiting for my G&G since August 2013. I agree, not sure If I can wait that long anymore.

I'm heading to the STC trunk show tomorrow at Leathersoul in Beverly Hills. I will try and take some pics. I'm contemplating a austerity brogue boot or a cap toe boot in brown/black. Should be fun.

Given that G&G did move to a new factory and opened a new storefront, its more than understandable that the lead time will be slightly longer for last years order...

Is this for an MTO? Even my pairs didn't take that long, but they were standard models just in an F width.

I've waited 10 months before for Edward Green MTOs. I think the variance in time really has to do with when you order and how varying it is from rtw models.

Pretty much standard, Vintage Chestnut Rothchild E width, asked for a darker version of the Vintage Chesnut. Debating whether to go to St. Crispin's Trunkshow. Not planning on buying any shoes this time.

I had the pleasure of attending the STC trunkshow this afternoon at LSBH and I really enjoyed the experience, particularly discussing options with Phillip Car. I fit pretty well into the standard STC last, particularly the classic last and after taking a look at my fit, Phillip agreed that no last adjustment was needed.

I ended up going with a pair of the attached Cap Toe Derby boots in Dark Brown Inca leather with a GEYO sole.
