    Stitchy liked it... :)

    I have a feeling GG would only bother with it for a bespoke order...

    Here is a pair of bespoke Cleverley loafers in “formal black calf leather although the fine grain add a casual twist…”

    I am as certain as I can be from a photograph; these shoes are made in that same stamped calf, GG calls “Hatchgrain” and the merchant (AA Crack in Northampton) calls “Russia Calf”

    Colour: “Liquorice” (or ‘black’ to you and me)

    I was merely speculating, in response to the previous alleged comments by Mr G Jr. Anyway, I have to say I don't much like it.

    ^ Namor,

    I have, but my lack of familiarity and support with EG limits my grail shoe options. Unfortunately my wide feet make all my purchases MTO. I would rather play it safe with a maker that knows my size and fits quite well.

    If GG can make this MTO, it would simplify the variables against me.

    the reason i mention it because you are pretty much asking G&G to make you a bespoke shoe in which case youll get the ultimate boot in terms of fit, atleast. EG and G&G sizing are as close as any two unique (if you can even call it that) shoe companies go (DG70 = 82, TG73 = 888, etc) youll find that the only real difference between eg and g&G is that G&G has the benefit of some great online retailers. guys like nick are always a pleasure
