    Looks awesome, but it lacks a little depth. I tried on monks in the same leather, and they told me they're offering a patina service in their shop now. Might be worth looking into, if that's your thing.

    I like maple color, it is indeed very light tan color. It is probably possible to darken it a little bit.

    Was also at the sample sale. Getting up at 3.30am, then travelling 5h to London and getting to Timothy Everest by 11am turned out to be well worth it. I got myself what Tony described as "probably the best deal in the sale." Travelling back now, so won't be able to post pictures until tomorrow ... it'll help keep the tension up for you guys :)

    ... oh and before I forget, I also picked up a lovely driving jacket, a silk scarf and a shirt at Timothy Everest.

    Well in case you change your mind and decide to sell those, let me know. I assume they are 10.5 E

    That Gable doesn't have the characteristic pointed stitching ... Interesting. Lovely colour!

    Yep, 10.5E. How did you know that?

    I prefer the normal cap toe, it doesn't stand out as much. It makes the shoe more office appropriate.

    .

    Bar tack at lacing cut through the leather. Dean offered to see a replacement one just above it.

    Went back this evening to a more organised room. Still a fair bit left so worth droppping by if you're in London. Even managed to find another pair for myself. May die them black. Did that with my stained sinatras to great satisfaction. [​IMG]

    Nice one! What was the crowd like when you went this evening? Any queues outside or was it walk straight in and make a bee line to the G&G room?
