    I'd love a pair of St James II in the hatch grain

    I wonder what the Canterbury would look like in it too

    IMHO the hatch grain is best for wholecuts or less detailed shoes. The extra punching and brouging takes away from the stunning detail of the hatch grain leather itself. I would order it in GG Hays, Westbury or GG Deco Cooper or Holden, Anything else would be like guilding the lilly.

    I am absolutely chomping at the bit to order a pair of Papworths at the moment. How is the sizing? I wear a size 9.5UK (medium width) in Di Biancos and Sutors, 10.5US in Allen Edmonds, my foot isn't overly narrow but fits medium well, can anyone assist? First pair of G&Gs for me....

    G &G is half size shorter than US sizes. So if you are 10.5 US in AE you should go with G&G 10 uk but there is no way to be 100%. If you are planning on buying such expensive shoe such you should try it first at the trunk shoe preferably.

    For me I'm 1 size smaller than my US size - except with the KN14 last, which for some reason fits differently and then I'm 1/2 size smaller.

    I wear 10.5US
    9.5US in GG (besides KN14 which I'm a 10 GG)
    10/10.5 EG

    I actually don't like the gables that much. They are nice but wouldn't buy them.

    I didn't know this, I will ask Nick. Going to do MTO one way or another since that's the only way you can get the Decos. Thanks stitch!
