    Hello,

    This is a Size 8F which was a recent MTO. I was stunned by the beauty when I collected them from the factory.

    Regards,
    Nick.

    For every G&G bespoke, there are 10 Japanese bespoke makers originating from the exact same roots.

    It's because I knew you like John Lobb St James that I asked the question, as it didn't tally with your previous comments about overpaying for quality. So, while I don't agree with some of your views about quality, I do appreciate that you're consistent with them across both Goodyear-welted and hand-welted shoes.

    right here, for now
    nick . . . . i need some advice before ordering. The website seems to indicate the mh71 & kn14 lasts are similar, at least in terms of toe shape.
    how about the heel 'cup'. i have the cannes on the kn14 and find the heel a little too voluminous.
    how can i achieve equivalent to a 10.5 D US without heel slip ?

    I can include a Loafer but I didn't want to build hope for early summer delivery here in the UK and you receive in late August when its getting bad again. What do you think?
