Personally I love wing tip designs and opted for the Astaire (G&G's wing tip adelaide oxford)...naturally in the only color a legitimate trial lawyer should wear...BLACK
As to Vintage Cognac...Dean told me personally back in April of 2008, that they were fazing out this color since it was too similar to Cedar. I didn't think so but contributed to me not using it.
Given the depth of adjustments allowed by EG...have you considered them to fill some of your future shoe orders...or do you feel the shape of their lasts are not to your liking?
I am thinking about some EGs. Truth is I tried to get an EG Ecton as my first foray into the world of top dollar MTOs. I was less than impressed with the lack lustre customer relations - or should I say as Will might "customer repulsions" service so I decided to give G&G a try. G&G's customer relations are far superior. A different world in fact. I do like the EG product though. Great shoes and I might try to give them a try one day. However, generally speaking, I think G&G make better than EG and I would only go to EG for something I am desperate for that G&G wont do as MTO. I have such a long list of shoes to get that, that might not happen before I make the jump to bespoke hyperspace.
Speaking of lists of shoes, I should be grateful for a further steer for my next G&G loafer project: what about pig skin... same colour as Luk-cha's recent G&G bespoke wingtip brogue derby's? Or is that too outlandish? J
