    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:

    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:

    If you are 10.5 EEE on AE, you should definitely be on 11 G in G&G sizing. MH71/GG06 for captoes and narrower toe TG73/DG06 for non-cap toes.

    At the very last, try 11E since it should be available from most dealers. G width fitting is usually non-stock and has to be MTO'ed.

    Best is to bite the bullet and get bespoke. A whole different construction.

    One of the most beautiful chukka boots ever made. It could not fit or look better even if it was bespoke. Perfection!

    I am in Denver and I go through Nick Anderson at Bespoke England. He is an affiliate vendor on this page, see the links on the right.
    He is a joy to deal with and a cusomer advocate with G&G.

    Nick will work with you on any problem, issue, or satisfaction if something come up. I have done over 15 pairs with him. None better.
