    Nah, the number in the tongue is the order number, not the number of a specific pair of shoes. An order can contain just one pair of shoes or 50.

    Thought I'd share a couple of pictures of MTOs that have just arrived...

    This is the first Mayfair we have received and I have to say in Mole Suede with the Dainite sole I'm sure it will prove to be an extremely versatile shoe.

    A touch on the extravagant side with a St James II in Vintage Cherry and a matching Suede.

    Lastly a Cannes in an Oak Pigskin...

    That Mayfair may be one of the nicest dubmunks I have seen.

    Pigskin is a great choice for a loafer!

    Can't say I agree.




    If we're talking about Italian Peccary leather, which is very soft & often used for gloves, purses etc then yes it could be a good choice for a driving shoe or the like.

    But in terms of the Pigskin often used by G&G - English Pigskin, this is stiff, almost cardboard like & finds wax polish disagreeable with it's natural surface.

    Not recommended in my opinion.

    I couldn't profess to know about pigskin from England, or the particular characteristics of it.

    But I once had a pair of italian pigskin shoes that I really enjoyed. I couldn't say they held up a long time - but they were soft, comfortable, matte finished and very casual.

    Ah ok. G&G tend to use the English stuff



    I guess your earlier post recommending Pigskin was based on this short experience then.

    I've owned & then quickly sold on a pair of Derbies in 2010. But I strongly suspect G&G continue to use the same Pigskin across all their shoes. It would be a good leather for a structured briefcase or handbag, not shoes IMO.
