Thanks in advance Jamaican

Dude, my first order a Hove derby shoe (ordered in April 2007) took 3 1/2 months, the Rothschild brogue (ordered en of October 2007) took 7 months and the Cannes (ordered early January 2008) took 5 months on the dot.

As for MTO options, check out the gazianogirling.com website: In short there are a good few designs (see the benchmade section on the website), each of which can be put on one of the four last shapes (except for the slip-ons which only have one last). These can be made in a wide variety of leathers (analine dyed) and crust leathers. Cost is around 550 plus 87 for lasted shoe trees. Since you are in Manchester, I'd check out Edwards, Barton Arcade in Deansgate.

Ooops forgot to mention that there are differentsole options including crepe, oak bark (with the fiddle), double sole and more.

I didn't realize G&G did crust leathers....

Anyone purchase the Chelsea boot from G&G? I think that will be my next shoe purchase, hopefully by the end of the year.

Thanks ET... I didn't think I'd ever hear you say that you like anything to do with G&G...

Hi Jamaican,

I posted you a private message and I am just enquiring to see if you have received it or if I have incorrectly sent it.

Regards

Jamaican, E.T. liked the leather, not the shoe, thus he's still no fan of G & G

Gurus5000 your profile has a weblink for Nicholas Jones, which is a stones throw from Edwards, who stock G&G RTW, MTO and bespoke.
Alan Clemence knows more about shoes than is healthy for a normal human being.

Confused...

That's exactly what I was alluding to when I noted that it was something to do with G&G...

Hi Infrasonic,

Yes I know Alan but I just wanted to know peoples opinions on here that have no benefit from selling them etc.

Thanks.

I think the construction used by G&G is top notch, and a steal for the price. I'm just not that amped on the sleek lasts and their (primary) use of aniline leathers.

I know you do not like the sleekness. That is fair enough. I note my opinion on that in my original post so won't regurgitate it. However, I am not sure that you are right in saying that G&G primarily use aniline leathers. They do seem to use more than EG but it seems to me that most G&G shoes incorporate crust leathers. I do not opine on the merits or demerits of crust vs. aniline. Generally, I happen to prefer crust leathers.
