    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Like I said, the new design is better and will not split. This is due to too many factors (some my own fault), but this is one of the best fitting shoes I had from GG

    Absolutely stunning leather! Is this the same leather as you have in your Arran?

    Yes. This leather polishes better than anything I've seen in 45 years or buying shoes.

    right here, for now
    appreciate you confirming what i suspected on the soul. i do believe you are correct, i am gonna like that one A LOT.
    kind of expecting the top of the grains to take a fairly high shine, then drop down their sides a little muted.

    probably asked and answered every few pages, but I'm lazy - where do you guys (in the states) purchase?

    If you want to see them in person and try them on, etc., then Leffot in NYC.

    How is bespoke england with returns? Their website seems a little ominous on that front, since they mention not expecting many returns, etc.

    I'm looking at a pair of "Oakhams" in black calf that seem very rock and roll. The problem is I've only tried on G&G once at Leffot and don't remember the model (some black captoe)...don't even remember the size I did, so I imagine there's a chance I'll need to make a return for another size, etc. (I usually wear 41 EUR, so am leaning toward 7.5 UK.)

    I'm hoping to join the GG ranks, but require some fit help. I am a brannock scale size of 10.5 EE, (typical AE size 10.5 EEE and Ferragamo size 11 EE) and i tried the GG TG73 last in size UK 10.5 F and this was the result:

    [​IMG]

    I was extremely tentative in even getting my foot in the shoe, as the opening did not seem wide enough. The toe room seemed fine, and there was a fullness in the sides of my foot and the vamp, but not extremely uncomfortable. The lacings were just not going to tie correctly, so this is where i gave up on this size.

    Would the proper move be to try a UK 10.5 G width, or does anyone have any ideas? :confused:
