    Thanks!


    The Moores are nice! I was just looking at them in the AFPOS thread earlier today.

    I think you meant the slant and the height of the shaft.

    I trust GG's judgement on the details. I'm pretty pleased with them...

    Not in my hands just yet, it looks like the factory is almost done with them though.

    Considering all Nick approached them with was this PhotoShop-Fu pic, we were pretty surprised they decided to humor me:

    I remember you asking me why not just get the Galway then. The answer is probably just GG sizing familiarity, not wanting to risk the fit being off on the EG.

    Either way, I will take pics when I have them...

    When I inspected them in the factory I really liked them. It's a sleeker more elegant Galway, which I think is a good complement now when the stubborn EG-people only agree to make the Galway in two lasts even if it's MTO.

    You'd be surprise how close the two are. I have both and they are both fantastic shoes.

    New Cherry Cambridge from Nick! They're my first G&Gs. I'm still testing to see if the fit is right. They are very snug even for an F fitting. I remember my AS G fitting were also tight and now they're a dream to wear...:confused:

    Just a reminder for the MTO that I will be placing in 3 weeks that I hope I can get 6 people to join...


    I'm going to do an MTO for a pair of G&G through skoaktiebolaget.

    Since Im not in a great hurry I thought I would check here first so see if someone else might be
    interested in joining me.
    However, since I dont want to wait forever either I will put a final date for the whole thing,
    which will be friday november 22nd.

    if we dont get 6 people by that time and you dont want to proceed with purchasing the shoes with the added MTO cost,
    that is fine I will go ahead and order them anyway :)
    So if you are interested in joining in, please contact me.

    the specs will be these, but if someone has a better idea, im still open for suggestions.

    Gaziano & Girling Arran
    Not sure if its Oak hatch grain or if its brown hatch grain, cause I think its a tad lighter than oak
    anyway, its the shoes below and I saw that Nick from from bespoke england had used it.
    Last: MH71
    Width: E
    Sole: Wensum (or Dainite if a majority prefer this)
    Details: Black stitching/lining/lacing with only 2 eyelets instead of the normal 3.
    price: Gabriel/Patrik help please.
    Price for this mode as a Group MTO is 7900 SEK (6320 ex VAT)
    Price for this model as a MTO is 9300 SEK (7440 ex VAT)

    So the shoe/last will look like this.

    [​IMG]


    But the coloring will/should be very similar to this
    [​IMG]
    http://www.styleforum.net/g/i/515395/a/337981/gaziano-girling-appreciation-shoo-porn-theard/


    Still not 100% sure that these all of these details are possible, but G&G are usually pretty flexible,
    so I hope there wont be any problems.
    I also dont know the price for these, but Gabriel or Patrik might help me here :)

    I imagine it will look something like this
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/338047/...official-affiliate-thread/660_10#post_6633563
    but with black details

    To get an idea for what the difference will be between black and brown stitching/lacing
    2 very similar dark oak EG dovers are shown below.

    EDIT: added price
    EDIT2: added comparison of black/brown thread
