    PSA: There's a Westbury in US 10.5 at Barneys Warehouse website.

    It's interesting the same size range keeps coming up. 10-11 US almost always in all styles. If only there was an 8.

    Thanks.. I'm just starting to use the Saphir products and have not yet ventured into your level of artistry with the different colored cremes and waxes, but I keep learning from the shoe care thread.. and will experiment a little. Ive got some Medium brown on order and will try it out... Already hit it with a little Renovateur and a light amount of non-saphir brown wax just to protect a little. Will experiment a bit. Some of the coloring must be lighting in your photo vs lighting in mine - to the eye mine aren't quite as brightly tan as they seem above in the photo, but I do like the color you got on yours..

    Sorry, I wasn't clear that I wasn't trying to show photos of the scratches. The pics of the heels show the odd antiquing. The rest are just for fun. I've included photos of the scratches below. I've got Reno and Saphir's medium and dark brown. I'm thinking that I should try a little Reno first, and if that doesn't work, then try the medium brown. Any suggestions?

    Reno should take care of it. If not mid brown. Wear the true patina proud.

    I appear to be anywhere between a 9.5 and a 10.5 in GG :fu:

    That is unusual. I hear that all their lasts are designed to fit consistently across the spectrum. So if you are, say a UK8 in one, you will be the same in all.

    I've noticed the likes of EG and G&G shoes are cut to very precise dimensions...if you are off by even .5 they will be too loose or too tight.

    When I bought my Sinatra wholecuts, Leffot advised sizing down a half size.. Because the wholecuts wear a tad bit larger. Same last as my Hayes. TG73 I think.

    Outside of the 'couldn't pass' deal with Barney's, that's one of the reasons I like dealing with Leffot, service, they know the goods, you can walk in the store and touch the merch.

    P
    It's really annoying as I'm not hard to fit and pretty dialed in to every other SF approved maker, except perhaps for Alden

    I`ve been told this as well, lets`s hope it`s true and not just being told to win net business...shoes sizing is a hit and miss I`m afraid.

    This has up several times before and even if GG says that one should have the same size in all lasts, it´s not true for everyone. I wear UK8E in DG70 and TG73 but UK7.5E in GG06. As with all shoes, you must try them to know 100%.

    Purchasing my first G&G's in Wigmore but I need ideas.
    I'm a size 44/45 and my palette consists of espresso, vintage oak or black (Ideas?). I'm playing it color safe so they will be more adaptable to my wardrobe.
    Also what last would you recommend for this model for a smart look.

    I received these tonight to try on for size. I haven't yet but will later. A pair of MH71 Espresso Cambridges in the nude.
