    I just ordered the Hayes in Vintage Oak on the TG73 but am having second thoughts after seeing the DG70s............... thoughts?

    Both are fine - if you like the TG73 then stay with it would be my free advise.

    what do you think about this one?

    Very interesting. Originally they learnt the technique from the Eskimos.

    Speaking of a wholecut seamless derby, Lattanzi made such a pair. It was also wood-pegged and had a goyser stitching.

    Look at the heel. There is no seam.
    bengal-stripe may probably know about it and may give his opinion.

    Yep, the lacing, that was my point...I think you'll hqve to buy them some drinks afterwards if you seriously going to torture them with that [​IMG].

    PS
    Ask for grained or heavily textured exotic leather, that would make it even more difficult [​IMG].

    Actually, this was a sample pair done up for Paul Stuart, which accounts for the differing sole design. I'm fortunate that my G&G sizing (8D) happens to be what they use for all their trunk shows and samples.
