    I enjoy the other GG lasts more, they are part of the reason i love GG shoes. IMO the GG06 is GG's more conservative offering, which is just not what i'm looking for in a pair of GG's...

    Might also look great in the new Aubergine calf used on the Jodhpur. I think Claret is gorgeous; I have the austerity brogue.

    Might be game for the Norvegese boot.

    I think @Leaves is still waiting for a quote from GG to give us an estimate on what a GMTO for this kind of make-up would be...

    This last delivery required a signature, but I wasn't home.[​IMG]


    Here's hoping my wife is able to pick it up tomorrow or I'm going to have to wait until Wednesday.

    Just got these yesterday. I really love this make up:

    I'm already on the second set of laces :) anybody know how to prevent tearing? I've seen suggestions to file the inside of the speed hook. Does that actually work?

    Don't tighten the laces when they are in the hooks, do it before and just lay them around the hooks.

    There is a film here somewhere showing how to do it....

    ^^^ That's what I do and don't have any issue with shredded laces.

    Thanks, going to try that today. Maybe I was lacing them too tight around the hooks.

    I am not on this project but I would suggest that you guys consider Bonafe Millerighe soles instead of Dainite. Millerighe soles seem to provide more traction than Dainite.

    FYI peccary is supposed to be super warm (in case any of you live in warm climates)

    You can get any last you want. I'm making a pair for myself on the 74945 last in suede. Placing the order as soon as I know if they can do a seamless Chelsea. It won't be a full seamless style though, there will still be a seem at the heel.
