    Cheers guys!

    Clee1982: No MTO, Skoaktiebolaget stocks a couple of pairs in F-width, which I think is great.

    Coxaca and Wurger: I've given them some cream and polish myself.

    Thanks! The trees are Skoaktiebolagets own trees ( http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/taxonomy/term/17 ), also made by Springline (who makes the trees for G&G). They fit MH71 very well, probably works nice for TG73 as well. Cheaper than the lasted trees. And they are stained, not coated.

    Obviously, I was joking about buying Spoo's pair of Fairmonts at full price. I agree the Hove is a terrific looking shoe (there's a nice pair on eBay for a small foot) and I thought about getting a pair from Bespoke before succumbing to cheaper, and perfectly acceptable split toe derby alternatives (AS Charlton and Carmina Taylor).

    I was thinking of GG because I like the stiching GG (and EG) does with split toe (invisible, or whatever you call it...) instead of the AS/Carmina/Alden version

    the G&G thorpe and EG Nevis are both great in pebble grain, even in black!

    Yeah I see a lot of people who took advantage of recent sales are listing them on eBay. Some are very reasonable (several in the mid to high 500s). Some are ridiculous (800s). rl_store has theirs for $699. I guess if they have your size it's not too high of a price.

    nah, 700 vs. 449 (or 500 ish plus tax and shipping, if you include paypal his base cost is probably 550~), I will pass, and bet it to appear cheaper another time from someone who decide MH71 is a poor fit for them :satisfied:
