    i agree in that some events should have shapes where the shoes don't stand out too much, but for most i think the TG73 is great!

    They are your size, PM me if you want them. I made them up for myself as a test for Pearl Grey, but clients have first dibs (plus my wife will probably kill me if I bring home a third pair of St James).

    What size would that be? Just in case they become available on second - or would that be third - dibs?

    As Maxwell Smart would say "Missed by that much."

    I'm an 11F.

    Can one swear on this forum?

    I had an 11E St James TG73 in VR widened sufficiently to be able to wear it comfortably.

    I don't support there's some magic way to shorten them?

    Thank you a ton but I don't think I can swing a 11.5F. Probably would need a 12F or 12.5E. Damn it! Really like those..:

    If you and Nick clone merge each other I think the likelihood of you becoming a UK 11.5 F is high. Might be worth a shot!

    Love it. Will probably darken it a touch with some black cream over time.

    Would be money.

    Too bad G&G doesn't do an austerity adelaide like that.

    I'm still thinking a gable would be amazing in that color. Though Id do a gmto for the new st James.

    Going by the St James picture it looks a bit darker (and much better) than other images I've seen of pearl grey.

    I had been thinking of a Warwick in this colour with suede but the St. James image has thrown a spanner in the works! They look so good.

    What last would you have for a GMTO?
