    the reason i mention it because you are pretty much asking G&G to make you a bespoke shoe in which case youll get the ultimate boot in terms of fit, atleast. EG and G&G sizing are as close as any two unique (if you can even call it that) shoe companies go (DG70 = 82, TG73 = 888, etc) youll find that the only real difference between eg and g&G is that G&G has the benefit of some great online retailers. guys like nick are always a pleasure

    Indeed! Just ordered a pair of lacy man's oxfords in Tanned Hatch Grain for myself...now it's just a painful 5 months of waiting.

    Ah that'd make more sense. Guy works his balls off to buy a Ferrari then decides he's too lazy to tie shoes. Unbelievable. [​IMG]

    They need a better name. Deep purple just doesn't cut it. Maybe lolpurple or Royal iGent.
