    You know what, after everything, I would too. Might be too plain Jane for most though...

    My plain toe derby days are behind me I'm afraid, it's all about chukkas for me now.

    Sure a plain Jane chukka is not for you Laufer?

    GG still makes deco black leather, but has chosen to use it exclusively for their Deco line, and is also excluded from GMTOs.

    Oic, is it possibly to make deco last on gable still, or we have to stick with the deco range?

    I am new to G&G, sorry for my ignorance

    @Leaves might answer this best, but I think deco black calf is out from any GMTO order, Deco line specs or otherwise.

    You can order the Gable in the deco last of course, even as a GMTO, but there is an upcharge to use it. Note that using the last does not make the model a deco line shoe though, which are made to different standards, and are another price all together...

    I would be in for a more casual Arran. Ridgeway sole, storm welt, some sort of pebble or hatch grain, MH71

    Or I might just get those EG Kentmeres..

    It's actually a popular design in Italy, it was not a style invented by StC. The style we did from Bonafè (although we modified it) was from the 80s or possibly even earlier. For that style, with the chained Norvegese, you will have to go bespoke.


    Correct. New policy from GG.


    You can, but there's a steep surcharge. Please email for dets. sales@skoaktiebolaget.se

    I should have kept it new and unworn as decoration but it's been through some beating
