    LOVELY!

    How interesting that you chose a G&G make up that is so similar to many of your EG shoes. Your asthetic is obviously consistent!

    For better or worse, Gdot, I've come to terms with the fact that I'm a "broguing" man - a nice wingtip, what more can one ask out of life :)

    I did pick up a Dover boot recently . . . :embar:

    I agree! Especially when the rotschilds are on the DG70, they look perfect!

    Here is mine coming in few days as well. From Nick's tumbler. If you can't tell, I love monks.

    Mayfair on TG73 last in Polo Suede. Perfect to wear with tweed and heavy grey flannel pants.

    Being a 13E, trees come later. I am not sure if they use the TG73 13E last for anyone else.

    Thank you,
    Actually this is one of the fastest MTO for me at 12 weeks. Some took as long as 24 weeks before, but again, they needed to make a larger 13E and 13F lasts not available in their offering..

    It's a great challenge for any maker, making a size 13 pair both feel fine and look contoured. I'm sure G&G handles this one well.

    They are by far the best. They make a 13E looks like a 10E with their countured lines and soft sculpturing. I was told that the 13E last was made for me after several trials and adjustmets on few pairs I bought from them. I have close to a dozen TG73 lasted shoes and they all fit like a glove. Comfortable from day one. Never needed a break-in period. Nick Andersen faciltates all fit with G&G and I am happy with everything that comes out of their factory.

    Service by Bespoke England and G&G is second to none.
