    You'd be surprise how close the two are. I have both and they are both fantastic shoes.

    New Cherry Cambridge from Nick! They're my first G&Gs. I'm still testing to see if the fit is right. They are very snug even for an F fitting. I remember my AS G fitting were also tight and now they're a dream to wear...:confused:

    Just a reminder for the MTO that I will be placing in 3 weeks that I hope I can get 6 people to join...


    I'm going to do an MTO for a pair of G&G through skoaktiebolaget.

    Since Im not in a great hurry I thought I would check here first so see if someone else might be
    interested in joining me.
    However, since I dont want to wait forever either I will put a final date for the whole thing,
    which will be friday november 22nd.

    if we dont get 6 people by that time and you dont want to proceed with purchasing the shoes with the added MTO cost,
    that is fine I will go ahead and order them anyway :)
    So if you are interested in joining in, please contact me.

    the specs will be these, but if someone has a better idea, im still open for suggestions.

    Gaziano & Girling Arran
    Not sure if its Oak hatch grain or if its brown hatch grain, cause I think its a tad lighter than oak
    anyway, its the shoes below and I saw that Nick from from bespoke england had used it.
    Last: MH71
    Width: E
    Sole: Wensum (or Dainite if a majority prefer this)
    Details: Black stitching/lining/lacing with only 2 eyelets instead of the normal 3.
    price: Gabriel/Patrik help please.
    Price for this mode as a Group MTO is 7900 SEK (6320 ex VAT)
    Price for this model as a MTO is 9300 SEK (7440 ex VAT)

    So the shoe/last will look like this.

    But the coloring will/should be very similar to this

    http://www.styleforum.net/g/i/515395/a/337981/gaziano-girling-appreciation-shoo-porn-theard/


    Still not 100% sure that these all of these details are possible, but G&G are usually pretty flexible,
    so I hope there wont be any problems.
    I also dont know the price for these, but Gabriel or Patrik might help me here :)

    I imagine it will look something like this
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/338047/...official-affiliate-thread/660_10#post_6633563
    but with black details

    To get an idea for what the difference will be between black and brown stitching/lacing
    2 very similar dark oak EG dovers are shown below.

    EDIT: added price
    EDIT2: added comparison of black/brown thread

    Correction, it seems to apply to RTW orders as well made during Nick's promotional period :slayer:
