Just curious how satisfied you are with this wholecut. Which last/color did you choose? How long was the delivery time? Thanks.

No sinatras, but I do have a pair of burnhams on the MH71 last.

Thanks. How do you find the construction? Coloring? Are they superlative? I'm trying to determine if they're worth the premium? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I love chelsea boots, so I'm biased, but for me these are fantastic. The MH71 last fits me well and vintage chestnut suits the boot. They are my current favourite shoes and get worn a lot evenings and weekends. My only comment would be that the leather stains easily, but as they are essentially casual it adds to the vintage effect and isn't an issue. They took a while to arrive, but I knew there would be a delay when I ordered them as they were a new product - having said that all of my G&G orders have arrived within the promised timescales.
Sorry if this looks like an advert for G&G, but I am genuinely very happy with the product and the service.

Did you find the sizing to be a half size down from your normal US size?

Also we'd love to see some pics!

I'm English, so US sizes weren't an issue. Dean measured me in London and came up with the same size that I wear in C&J.

I second the suggestion for pics

Also, any thoughts on how the construction/aesthetic compares to the Weston chelsea (also a wholecut) shown here (in tan)?

My UK sizing for EG = G&G. Leathers are different, slightly more maintenence due to tanning and final finnish.
NOT WOORSE, just diferent. CRUST vs ANALINE taned, you wil find other posts on G&G finnish. I find the G&G shapes to be more continental than EG or other UK makers. But nicer than JMW, fwiw.

FWIW I recently picked up a the Wigmore boots on the TG73, but I did try on shoes on the MH71. I take a 9.5 in both the TG73 and MH71, and for comparison I take the same size for an EG 202. the Sinatra on the G&G website is on the TG73

As for finish and quality, I can't much tell the difference with my JLP Prestige. I haven't worn them outside yet, so they haven't hit the elements.

If you can afford, I don't think you'll regret it.
