    I have the sinatra as well as grant. I think sinatra is the best looking wholecut outside of semi bespoke seamless or better. The tg73 last just looks so good in the plain design.

    It's really the more popular, signature model in black

    Very elegant. Love them. Great choice !
    The Deco range come with a little extra polish and shine which make them a work or art.

    Had the pleasure of once trying a pair on at Nicks and on my foot they "wore" like a TG73 with an extra 1" extension which presented a different walking experience having longer length shoes.
    However, dressed properly, when you walk into a room, everyone will see something special just walked in. You can't help but notice them.


    I would love a pair of Navy Deco Stingrays or Racing Green.

    Kindly post a picture when you get chance to wear them with various angles.
    Enjoy... you earned it !

    Good choice. You have so much color in your shoes that I think you would greatly benefit from a black sinatra. It's good to have some basics and I think this one would be great for formal events and suits.

    Food for thought

    @TtownMD

    Why not get the black Sinatra and apply some navy polish for a little depth?

    I'm still liking the MH71 for the Sinatra, but TG73 is growing on me.

    Thanks AndrzejJopek, really appreciate your kind words. I think a pair of racing green will be great.

    Interesting with the Navy on Black.
    I got some C&J black Weymouth whole cuts i may just try that out on to give them a different look.
    The problem i find with black shoes is that they all look the same and it takes something exceptional like the Sinatra or Deco range to make them stand out.

    Navy polish on black is the most common one I've heard. Another that Steven Taffel of Leffot has suggested is Navy polish on burgundy.

    Navy on burgundy gives the shoes some depth.

    I heard of navy on burgundy and other colors and that makes sense because navy is darker so you can tell. But black is so dark it's hard to see it making as much of an impact.

    Just looked it up in google:


    The most striking difference to me is that one was shined and the other was not. I can't see it can you guys? I think the point was to get it to be darker than black rather than bluish. I guess I'll try it on mine next time just for kicks.

    Unfortunately no. I am in on the burnham though and by the look of my westminsters, it looks like deep cedar is a very rich and unique color. Should be great.

    It isn't something I do, but it's not the first I've heard of it either and to be fair this is only one pair of shoes and one picture. If I remember correctly it can add a bit of depth.

    In widths too, or would that be MTO territory?

    (I'm asking here instead of email in case anyone else would like to know.)

    Stock pulls are only in the same widths listed (E Width). No F Width's that I know of. Sorry!
