    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.

    Since I dont know how free/wild you can go with bespoke some of these questions might be stupid :)
    Which model and last (looks like the tg73, but slightly elongated or is it just the size) have you based them on and the hole patterns are those standard or, if not, how do you specify them.
    Whats the name of that color and the special patina?

    Thats it I think :)

    Well.. the thing is that I just booked a meeting with them whilst in London and we discussed and the only thing I was sure of was whole cut and not black. Tony presented some ideas that we tweaked a bit. The color is Vintage Pine Calf and the last is tg73. I've instructed them to go rough on the antiquing..

    question - has anyone experienced any variation in GG sizing across the same last? i got a pair of TG73 and it seems to be a half size bigger than others i have tried on. i'm pretty sure i'm not confused on UK vs US sizing either

    Nice shoes! How's the fit? Any close shots of the sole waist stitching?

    No experience besides the toe box volume variations.

    Edit...read your post wrong. No i have tried several models in the sam last and no variation.

    Yes i have. I wear UK7.5 in GG06 and MH71 and UK8 in DG70 and TG73. I own shoes in DG70 and MH73 and have tried the other lasts including UK7.5 F in DG70. That didn´t work at all, my feet are E width.

    right here, for now
    congratulations. you've done an awesome job there. particularly like that you chose toeNAILS instead of taps.
    one of the best looking pair ever especially having seen your progress pics
