    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I had griffon counted in my original count of x4 (me, you, Flake, & griffon). So, still need x2, unless I missed someone...

    I have been dreaming of a navy double monk since member Patek's navy double monk EG, when i first joined the forum. I even had an AE version made back when, but it was always just a crude copy.

    This Oakham though, now that would be something more original...

    I think it's quite obvious that they do this to minimise the amount of MTO:s. MTO:s stop a effective production line for RTW and G&G takes the same path as Crockett & Jones and Carmina who has a 50% upcharge for MTO. CJ is doing more than fine....

    One can only hope that G&G will increase their RTW line and add models in different width, otherwise this new policy is very strange.

    As others said. I see no reason to buy G&G MTO when i can have a handwelted and customised shoe from makers like StC, Bestetti, Meccariello and of course Vass semi bespoke.

    There was a lot of interest when I first put it up, but since no commitments besides myself and one other by my count.

    The mock-up i believe is on the DG70 last, but I was proposing MH71...

    oh well, maybe others will take the bait. I was hoping you would say DG
    the 71 doesn't turn out all that great IRL for my 10.5 size

    It's open for discussion honestly, I really like the make-up enough to consider last options.

    I could probably be persuaded for the hatch grain hove but I prefer it on the mh71. I think the split toe looks better on a squared off toe.

    Does that make x4 interested in the Hove GMTO then (SoGent, Flake, PCK1, me)?

    I am definitely open to last suggestions on it. I dropped the black welt and contrast stitching to make it a simpler choice.

    Sad thing is I will only partake in one of the GMTO, so if they both get to x6, I'll have to withdraw from one of them :embar:
