That's the color I would have gone for had they had a pair in my size available.

This is a good opportunity for people with large/small sizes and different widths to get their hands on the Dover.

Would it be too redundant to get this DOAK Dover, if I already have a GG Hove in DOAK?

I was very tempted by the green, truth be told. Justin's pair were my straight-up fave, but that color range is already very well represented in the rotation.

I wanted the reddish ones as well but I have 2 shoes in the rotation. The tan/brown immediately caught my attention and I didnt hesitate to purchase even though I literally purchased the GG Hoves like a day before.

Hey @Leaves!

 

Do you know if Carmina makes loafers on any of their wider lasts other than Forest? I love the loafer designs but I have pretty much no hope of squeezing my foot into the Simpson or Uetam lasts that most of the loafers seem to be made on.

 

Thanks!

Just received my GGs also. They fit a hair big. But comfortable and can't wait for them to be broken in. Gorgeous shoe

I had them make up a pair of shell cordo loafers on the Rain for me. It took a bit of convincing, but they eventually conceded and the result is great.

The finish is different as I find EG's to have a "deeper" look; I don't think it would be redundant. Next, an angel should speak some logic about having two dark brown shoes...

Anyone? decisions.gif

G&G lasts are long but surprisingly well proportioned for me.

I also visited my PO. Yesterday, it USPS said my package was "Out for Delivery" and today was "Delivery status not updated" so I figure it hasn't been scanned. This is what I found:

If the length feels fine but the leather where the laces are meets is that ok? I have a low instep so oxfords and bluchers have the laces meet almost all the time.

Does GG TG73 fit narrower then Carminas Rain last? I'm trying to nail down my TG73 last sizing. I'm a 9.5UK in the Rain, although I find it a touch long.
