Hello laufer,

 

We can not provide pictures or sketches of the model yet. We will do so as soon as we are ready to release it. We can not provide a date yet as there is still work to do to make it perfect.  

 

Regarding the blue hatch grain we have not made a model in this material yet. 

 

We will take a picture of the hatchgrain tomorrow if the weather permits it (it is too dark blue to take a picture indoor).

 

Cheers,

Very cool guys. Welcome to the forum.

Blue hatch might make an interesting pairing with black calf on a Warwick...

A general GG question:

Are there plans to expand your RTW line to include F width ( or even G width) sizes?

Thank you for your help.

As another question, you recently made me a lovely open laced version of your Wigmore boot (Galway inspired). Are there plans to include it to your RTW line, and if so, what do you plan to call it?

Thank you for your efforts, they are appreciated.

G width available in RTW would be awesome and I know quite a few guys that would benefit (who's got 2 thumbs and wants some G&G? thumbs-up.gif This guy!) Even if it were only a few select models, it would be better than nothing.

F and G width available as RTW would be very awesome.

an expanded RTW line in terms of color/leather options would be nice too...

 

any plans to do patina as an option for MTO's in the future?

Hello everyone,

 

My fiancee is planning to get me a pair of Oxford shoes for our wedding.

 

We have narrowed it down to John Lobb, Gaziano Girling and Edward Green

 

The specific models are 

JL: Becketts, City II, Garnier

Gaziano: Cooper, Holden

Edward Green: Chelsea 

 

Out of these choices, the Becketts are our favourites followed by the G&G Coopers, but it will ultimately come down to fit and comfort.

I am fairly new to these brands, can someone that has worn one or more of these shoes let me know their thoughts? 

 

For the models we have chosen, are they all suitable to wear for a wedding (as the groom)? 

 

I have flat feet with almost no arch, does anyone know if the G&G models selected will pose a problem for my feet?

 

I will get a much much better idea once I get to see these in person and try them on, but I wanted to know a bit more about them before making a decision on purchase.

 

Thanks a lot for reading

   although I don't own one, I think the Cooper would be a great choice for your wedding.

   the opinion is based solely on its clean lines

The brands you suggested are basically comparable. I would go with the ones that provides a last that is most comfortable on your feet, and a design that you like.

Since this is GG theard, the Cooper and Holden are classic models on GG's stylish Deco last. They should both serve you well in regards to your wedding, and future formal occasions.

As a caveat, try them all on first before you decide and buy. Comfort and fit need to come first...

I agree. Despite there being a few threads on this board discussing wholecuts as a less formal shoe, given the lines of the Cooper, I personally would not have a problem wearing them with black tie, provided they were polished to a mirror shine and true black, rather than G&G Deco black.

I feel the wholecut is as formal as an oxford can get. I would not hesitate to wear a pair of highly polished black calf wholecuts to a black tie event. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thanks all for the replies and suggestions.

Unfortunately I checked with the Armoury and it seems they no longer stock G&G in Hong Kong. I will have to look at other options, like Lane Crawford to see if they sell G&G.

I agree, the Cooper's clean lines look very smart and appealing.

Thanks, I did some research prior to narrowing down to these 3 brands as I wanted a pair of shoes that would last me a long time (need to take care of them of course).
 

Is the Deco last the best last G&G does for RTW ? Agree that comfort and fit is most important, hopefully I'll find a shop that sells G&G so I can try on all the shoes I've picked out.

I personally prefer the wholecut over the cap toe, but I think the cap toe is considered more formal / classical?

While there's definetely more handwork in the Deco line than EG or JL, with the recent price increase, you're paying $2000 for gemmed shoes. At that price, you're also in the market for StC and Bestetti semi-bespoke.
