    Personally I have a hard time with navy and black together - perhaps I'm the only one though.

    Yeah, there is no GG branded cream. They only carry original polishes made by LCA. Hasegawa-san recommends using only neutral creme along with their original wax polishes (and never stain remover)

    Thanks!

    Nick told me he can do it in gold buckles on MTO, But I will double check to be sure.

    I like that idea a lot, i didn't think of doing a navy suede.

    Hhmmmmm do I do navy calf and navy suede or black calf and navy suede?

    Mr. Nick is truly a credit to the shoe retail industry. There is no service like the one provided by Mr. Nick.

    After much help, we finally worked out my size, 10.5 G, so MTO size. So may choices to choose from :bounce2:

    Those Pedestrian's are hideous. Look at all of that brogueing ruining them. Ugh.

    I will always say it, Nick is your best advocate for shoes from G&G. I have more GG MOTO than most, all from Nick, all with teh best service and attention to every little detail.

    On second thought it may have been that the Regency were only available with a brass buckle and not silver...

    I got the chance to try on a sample pair of GG Wigmores, in black pebble grain & black suede combination. It looked so good that I might end up getting that as my first GG, in midnight blue though...

    You were correct. G&G didn't offer Brass buckles with Mayfair or Grosvenor when we met in London. However, Tony Gaziano has just told me that they will do soon so any MTO Grosvenor or Mayfair ordered from now can have a choice. Nickel or Antiqued Brass colour buckles. They don't have them yet but if a MTO is placed now they will be in stock within the time it takes to make them.

    I would say....

    Dark Brown from Saphir Noir
    Boar Brown or the darker Havana Brown from regular line (blue label)
