    I do hope they decide to come back, because I was at the George Cleverley trunk show in Singapore just three days ago and George Glasgow Jr said apparently they weren't coming back anymore because they didn't receive enough bespoke fitting orders, which really makes me wonder what happens to the few clients that did get their bespoke shoes done.

    The Chelsea boots are one of the few on the market that come as a whole cut...

    Man, I'm seriously looking at the brown Burnham chelsea from Barney's.

    Anyone pick up that boot, and can share some pics?

    I saw some Burnhams at the factory - I thought it was a wonderful colour (dark oak, highly polished naturally). The shape is very elegant. My only concern would be that perhaps they are too good to wear for riding.

    Nice right up. Lots of good insights into the GG operation, and a bit of controversy to boot... :lurk:

    In the city
    Antibes in vintage pine. Was a bit more pricey ordering from Wilkes, but I'm glad I got the chance to be fitted by Dean. I had to size down all the way to an 8.5E despite being a 9.5/10D US.

    One grail down, three more to go.
