    Not exactly Hove but a variation. Bespoke with tan/chestnut hatch grain

    Depends on your trip to London but worst case less than 9 months if the first fitting went well.

    Good to know. That is incredible. I know its 9 months from now but I cant wait to see! I have been digging the dovers but EG doesnt seem to fit my foot as well as I was hoping for. GG fits a little better and TG73 is the perfect last IMO for the Hoves.

    I would get the Hove on the DG70 last, I like the idea of the round apron mirroring the round tapering of the toe.

    Can't decide between hatch or pebble grain though...

    The perfect last is whatever fits your feet, but I personally prefer a square toe for my wide feet. Narrow lasts is better for those permanantly constrained feet.

    Its difficult to decide as both hatch and pebble look very nice w/ casual shoes. Hatch is more visible from afar IMO thus my decision.

    Actually, with front similar to Hove but back similar to JM Westin/PC Saint Crispin MTO design. But with Norvegese sewn construction as oppose to hand sewn welted or Norwegian welted.

    I guess I am one of the very few customer that requests a Norvegese sewn construction. With triple braiding especially. Will see how it turns out.

    Yeah, I think I know which SC you`re talking about (SC MTO Apron-front Derby w/Norwegian welt), but yours will be Hove based and triple `chain` braided Norvegese. That will be awesome.

    One day when I'm a grown up, I'll have a pair of bespoke shoes lol.

    I ordered a pair of Sinatras in Chestnut hatch grain.

    How much is GG bespoke? Do they do a test pair for fitting?

    Any reason why you need a pair of bespoke shoes?

    I believe the price for bespoke shoes starts around 2500.00 British Pounds. Yes they do test fitting.

    Same reason that my AE's weren't good enough and I had to upgrade to high end stuff like G&G I guess? I've been a shoe collector since highschool so I probably haven't needed shoes in 10 years.
