Let's see if i can organize this, Laufer style:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Model : G&G Arran
Last : TG73
Soles : single oak bark leather soles
Color : Deco Black Calf (w/ toe & heel bleaching)
Price 7440 SEK VAT excluded (approx. $905)

So far interest has been shown by the following:

JubeiSpiegel (G width)
@Flake (F width)
@Anm1984 (E width)
@RogerP (F width)
@othertravel

If @Leaves can confirm the price and leather availability for this GMTO, and the interested can let me know their GG sizing, we can get something going. Let's see if we can get this done this month... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Woburn is really underrated and maybe you will consider ordering it in green hatch grain? G&G has so many different leathers I believe at one point some forum members were considering ordering woburn in Russian Raindeer?

I was convinced that the 64 was what I wanted but your pic made me think a bit more.  I think I'll stick with the 64 for this makeup and use the 202 for something in smooth leather later on.  This Galway thing can sure become a slippery slope.  Just like Vibergs were for me just recently (and kind of still are).

Slippery slope for sure made all the worse by the ability to MTO and the incredible service of Skoak.

So brown Utah on 64
Veldt construction
Dark brown welt
Dainite sole

Surcharge for Reindeer was quite high, was it ever answered why there was such a charge? I was interested in it

And I'd be ok with normal hatch grain colors as well outside of dark brown

At this point I see no reason not to use the same details that Leffot used:

This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling's classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it's tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.
Features: MH71 last, Chestnut Hatch Grain, Ridgeway soles

Seems reasonable to me - the only tweak I would suggest is either matched or antiqued bronze eyelets if you are keen. Would look really good I think.

Yes indeed the surcharge for Russian reindeer was 3000 SEK excluding VAT,
But there is also stag leAther.
@Leaves is there a surcharge for stage leather.

Also on sizing --- any suggestions?

-  Carmina Oscar last --- UK 7 (perfect fit)
-  C&J 341 --- UK 7E  (think I could have gone with a 6.5E)
-  C&J 325 --- UK 7E  (think a 6.5E would have been better)
-  Alden Barrie boots --- 7.5D  (perfect fit)
-  Alden Plaza boots --- 8D
-  Viberg 2030 --- 7.5  (a 7 also works on this last)
-  Viberg 2045 --- 7.5 (a 7 would have worked better, I think)

I've tried to give as many comparisons as possible so the more matchups with others will give me more confidence.

Here is 64 last on the left and 202 on the right. You will love the 64 last

This. 10d Barrie is perfect for me and I have a 10/10.5e Galway on the 64 last. IMO it is a hair wider than the Barrie boot, but not enough to go down to a d width.

9E for me in the deco black Arran.
post #8788 of 23852
@rydenfan

Any chance you have the 82 lasted Galway for a top down comparison with the 202?

I love that navy Utah Galway. Damn, I have to visit JS next week!
