    Hhhhnngh! There are some nice ones there.

    Sizing question. I'm 11.5 in Carmina Simpson last (which are a bit snug) and 11.5 in EG Galways on 82 last (which are a tiny bit roomy). What size should I go for in GG, same? Specifically TG73, but for other lasts as well.

    id say if you are a carmina tagged 11.5 on the simpson, then an 11.5 tagged GG would be right for you.

    Jeesh prices up on everything. This will keep me away from buying anything hopefully. I'll post pics of those Kent's in black tomorrow since I'm out of town on business.

    Cool thanks! Simpson is really only tight on one toe on my right foot (which is ever so slightly larger than my left). 12 in Simpson was too large.

    I met with dean today to make my first bespoke order. As much as I like the GG RTW, the bespoke samples are a different level. Dean inspires confidence. Here is a picture of a pair that I thought was particularly beautiful, and while it wasn't what I ordered today it will likely be my next order.

    Thats not the new vintage cherry...thats a bespoke and it looks like a very "antiqued" finish.

    I posted the new vintage cherry a few pages back...

    See inside the spoiler for the pics...

    So, if a unicorn married a rainbow, and they had pure magical sexy times, do you know what their child would be?

    Thats right, it would be the color Vintage Rioja.
