    Although I've always wanted an Austerity wingtip, a few makers, including EG, do a pretty good job. However, the TG73 does provide the snug fit that I light slightly better than the 82/888. I also prefer something different from dark oak since I have a number of shoes in that range. Maybe next year a burgundy Connaught will pop up.

    The Oakham in racing green definitely looks nice but for my wardrome, the color would bet better suited on the shelves than my day-to-day wear...

    Arran is also nice but the D would kill my feet.

    Congrats to those who pick up shoes! Nick has been great to work with. I owe my first G&G (Wigmore) to him!

    I would not recommend sizing down.

    Sizing help? I want to pick some of these up... I'm wearing 8E in the C&J 348 last right now, what might that correspond to in G&G?

    Pretty slim selection at 8.5, even slimmer for sales selections. Really want a pair of black Sinatra wholecuts!

    Is that code limited-time-only or can I hang onto it until there are some black Sinatra's available (assuming they would become available)?

    Well, the 20% off code lured me in. I'll be purchasing a pair of G&G St. James II in Vintage Cherry. Seems like an excellent choice to join the G&G family!

    I'm planning to go with a size 9 UK based upon my 10D Allen Edmonds 5 last sizing. I've done some cursory searching of this thread and that seems to be the suggest sizing, but I'd appreciate any additional input.

    Hmmm...I'll have to look into this a little more it seems. I was under the impression that a full size down was suggested.
