    OMG, nice.


    I got the Deco Cliffe in Vintage Cherry coming up soon. I think it will make 1920's Baby Jesus spank his Baby Monkey (blasphemy!!).

    I don't know. I thought the deco was awesome at first, because it has this exclusive last, its own finish, but now it is just turning into another last that costs ~$700 more than any other last.

    Why so?

    Perhaps that would be remedied if G&G were to introduce more deco specific colours

    Isn't that what the Grant is, a Sinatra with a medallion? Are there any other differences between the two models?


    Isn't there more hand work on a Deco than on the regular MTO and RTW stuff?

    The standard Grant comes on the DG70 last.

    The deco has more finishing, that's it.

    Aren't both models easily made on any G&G laced shoe last?

    Is there really a standard last for every model? I've actually seen more Grants in TG73 than anything else. In the G&G catalogue, the Grant is also shown in TG73.

    Standard, as in they make stock shoes like that. If you were to get a Grant in vintage oak on the DG70 it would not be considered a MTO shoe, they have a stock of them. FWIW, I don't think the Sinatra is stock at all.

    That makes sense.

    Is it only one color that they have a stock of for each model?

    Some styles they have more than one color. It is all on their website if you click shoes and then stock on the bottom.
