    Here are few G&G shoes (most of them) courtesy of "Saint" NICK Anderson at Bespoke England. The best man in the MTO business and more..

    This is not the thread for the following shoes, but I though some of you may appreciate the process.
    These are Riccardo Bestetti test shoes for my 2 pairs which will be done this summer. He made a test shoe to test the fit. This cheap leather shows all fit faults like an imprint.

    By the way, these are EU 47 wide.

    I am looking at a MTO in vintage chestnut as well. The burnished toe sold me on it. Especially on that MTO burnham from a bit ago...

    If I wear you, being in the UK, I just go and pick them up from Nick. I am not sure I could wait!

    I suppose you are right, that burnishing was indeed next level awesome. I recall GG doing custom burnishing for a fee. Such was the case for a client that wanted dark cherry on their oakhams, if i recall correctly:

    Maybe that could be an option to look into...
