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

I would go for the Gaziano and Girling, but MTO to accommodate your flat feel!

The navy hatch looks great, and is very wearable after the wedding.

Congratulations on your wedding and I hope you choose the right shoes!!!smile.gif

Not sure, but in my experience, it is quite rigid. I would personally not use it on an entire shoe, for comfort reasons...

That I don't know about St C leather, but compared to just the GG highland grain leather, it is noticeably more rigid.

   ok  St C buffalo is about the stiffest shoe leather I've encountered.

                        maybe I'm overthinking again

My Gaziano & Girling made to order shoes have arrived!  Very impressed with the quality, packaging, and overall styling of these two pairs.  This is my first order from this company - I have yet to wear them outside but hopefully they will be as comfortable as they look stylish!

 

1st Pair: "Grant" in Vintage Rioja on TG73 last.  I used the "Hayes" medallion instead.  5 eyelets instead of 6.

2nd Pair: "Uppingham II" in Midnight Blue on TG73 last. I deleted any brocade, medallion, etc for a more modern look.

Great choices.  Particularly fond of the blue.
