    I wear an 8E in the JL 7000 and an 8.5E in G&G, so I would guess that you are a 9.5E in G&G.

    I think that The Armoury picture above is much more accurate and pretty close to the IRL colour, at least on my screen. The mobile photo picture looks more like Vintage Pine or Vintage Maple to me. I would not use it for a reference to how Vintage Chestnut looks.

    well, they do have a beautiful shine.


    the ones i posted came out much exactly the shade that they were irl. i was surpised at how light they were, but that is what they looked like. also they were more of a matted than shiny finish.

    Some batches from the leather suppliers are lighter than others, this is true. Looks like you ended up with one of these. Nothing wrong with this though.

    G&G has a new shoe polish guy who's supposed to be one of the best in the business, and he polishes an insane amount of shoes per day, or so I've heard. I’ve noticed a higher shine on the latest batches from G&G, I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this?

    i was very pleased with the color and finish, i thought they were beautiful. however, i sent them back, they were just a trial pair for sizing before i finalized my mto order which will be in vintage oak.

    very cool to know.

    This is good to know about the new shine guy. I've had two pairs of RTW from G&G both of which must have been finished/polished many months ago.

    They were not spectacular in terms of final polish/finish. Although the quality of the leather, the saturation of the dyes, ie. all things longer term related, were fabulous.

    And polish is a temporary thing so I'm a happy camper.
