    I should have a pair in vintage cherry to poast by the end of this week - if that helps you with color selection.

    This has been the topic of many discussions. Personally I have to wear one half size up from C&J (I wear 12 in G&G and 11.5 in CJ).

    Thanks Leaves and pB. I was thinking of getting the Warwick from Bespoke England but noticed that they only have it in wide fitting.

    Seems like Bespoke England raised their prices recently. The lowest priced G&G's start at GBP660 now and I could swear some of the prices used to be lower.

    Their E fitting is the standard. You mean they only have it in F?

    That is correct, from what I have seen. Up until last week, all of the shoes that are now GBP660 were GBP625. Others that were more expensive than that before have gone up by varying amounts as well. I am guessing that G&G has raised their prices, hence the price increase from Bespoke.
    Yeah, Bespoke only has the Warwick in F-width. I was seriously considering getting a pair of those, if not for the width. I really like that design a lot.
    Last I checked, Edwards of Manchester only carries F-width for G&G. EDIT: Just checked the site again, they do have some new E-width shoes now that they didn't have before. Unfortunately, these are all of the GBP640 ones, which would suggest that G&G's base prices have definitely gone up.

    This probably means their MTO prices have gone up as well.

    Possibly not. MTO prices went up 2 or 3 months ago without a corresponding price increase in RTW, so hopefully there isn't another MTO price increase already.

    This is correct, there has been an increase of the MTO surcharge.
