    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 was told that you have to get it in the Deco last in order to get the Deco black calf when I requested an MTO.

    All i know, is that I have a MTO Wigmore from a couple years back on the TG73 last in Deco black calf, and any time i have inquired about it recently (with two different vendors) they have confirmed GG was ok with it at no up charge.

    It would be good to have @Leaves confirm this though, so we can more forward with the specs...

    Just curious, anyone else here also go in on Skoak's pre-order for the Chestnut St James II in their new pattern? Only a little over a month and a half left before delivery. Well in theory :)

    I placed an order for a St. James in vintage cherry, just a month before they announced the new pattern. Now i wish someone would have let me know to wait for a month, because the new pattern looks great...

    The good folks at Skoak reached out to me right after I placed my order to inform me about GGs new pattern and whether or not I wanted to choose that option. Initially I wanted to keep the original pattern but after looking at images of the new one I quickly changed my mind. Since this will be my first dive into the high end of the shoe range I'm anxious to see first hand the craftsmanship of a $900 shoe.

    Dang, I didn't realize those were on the new pattern or I might've jumped in. Oh well missed opportunity I guess.

    Is the new pattern on the heel design only?

    There's no surcharge for Deco Black. There is however a surcharge for about 2500 SEK ex VAT to use the Deco last for non Deco styles, this is a recent policy in order "not to dilute the Deco collection".

    That works for me, the Deco last is a little too much for me anyways. Thanks Leaves... :fistbump:

    Do G&G shoes/boots have a stiffener in the arch region like EG does?

    I don't know for sure, but it sure feels like it. The arch holds it's integrity quite well, which is commendable in light of my fallen arches...

    G&G Mailman GMTO

    Let's Get This Done Before it becomes even more expensive.

    Model : G&G Rothschild
    Last : MH71
    Soles : Ridgeway
    Welt: Storm
    Color : Chestnut Hatch Grain

    This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling's classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it's tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.

    Participants so far, for this GMTO:
