    I sold some for a lot less a few years ago. Surprisingly they took ages to sell.

    Big box from Nick to greet me upon my return from NYC. The Arran and the St. James in suede were from a previous delivery and required small mods, and I'm happy to state that the issues were very well addressed. An obligatory family portrait followed by more pics of the newbs...

    I am talking UK. My size in G&G is 8D. I have narrow feet.


    Those Suede St. James look awesome and have me itching for mine in the mole suede.

    Polo suede... it's a bit darker than Cedar.



    Actually, all of these have fit mods as determined by Dean Girling at the beginning of the year. The adjustments have made a great fit even better.



    Me too! :)

    Damn, I have been eyeballing these since they were $990. I have not yet checked to see if my size is still available... lets hope not for my wallets sake. :)

    I tried these on in black leather (BTW, no RL store in the USA stocks these, I checked) and they ran slightly small.

    G&G 11.5 is shorter than EG 11.5 & JL 11.5. The Wigmore boots fit me after a couple of break-in seasons on the carpet. My previous experience with G&G was with their Hayes model which is also built on the TG73 last. The Hayes fit great out of the box and thats what I was expecting from the Wigmores. However the Hayes felt really right and because its a boot, is slightly more difficult to fit into. I compared outsole measurements from the Hayes with the Wigmore and they are indeed the same size. For whatever reason, the boots were just really tight out of the box. And I was able to confirm this by inserting the TG73 lasted shoe trees (saved from the Hayes) into the boots and it took considerable effort getting them in on the first try. Fortunately, it worked out. Looking forward to wearing them for a long time.
