1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Thanks, but there is a mocha calf color, not suede, that I'm looking for. Bespoke England offers it in their mto selection.

    In my G&G swatch there's an Espresso Calf, a very dark brown aniline calf. The lads might have added a Mocha though but I don't think so. I noticed Bespoke England has a swatch called "Mocha" but this may actually be the Espresso Calf.

    ^ Nice. Spoo, noticed they're the same size and last, but different widths... [​IMG]

    Is the GG06 such a small last that you take your US size in it?

    You are being generous. Im guessing Friday.

    I wanted the boot in a wider width, as I hate narrow boots. The GG06 is a VERY tight last, and the Cambridges fit me perfectly, just a bit narrow, but they will break in. The boots are just a bit wide.

    spoo, G&G shoetrees?

    In there, incubating [​IMG]
