    Just had my midnight blue Mitchells darkened by the Savile Row G&G artisans. Took a picture next to a stock specimen to show the difference.

    I am empathetic to your cause, so i made a mock-up for you. Hopefully it will help in getting those last 2 people you need:

    Great looking boot, and I've been yearning for a Thorpe.


    I just wish I didn't have so many in that color already.

    If I had your skills, I'd just have 5 pairs of shoes and just have different colors posted on the threads... who needs shell LWBs in 5 different colors?

    What last is that on? The toe box looks longer than other G&Gs I've seen.

    Good man! Thanks for the pics.

    I love the boot, just wondering how much use I'd get out of it; I'm sensing overlap in my rotation.

    Now, either Chestnut hatch grain or Vintage Rioja smooth calf with VR hatch grain shaft...I don't known. They're all tempting, and my anxiety is on high :)

    Yes but we are looking for this boot in that color? Are you interested? The boot is called Burnham.

    Then I'm in.

    But they will have to be 13 and on the last they know fits me. I assume that won't be a problem as its a special order.

    The size 13 will not be a problem but the last would have to be MH71.
