    Sounds to me like maintenance of that finishing would certainly be a key advantage if applied during the tanning process and that certainly would make sense.

    That makes sense, pretty difficult to stop when the temptation here is so great.

    It is difficult to tell from that pic but if its hatch grain, it could be chrome-tanned calf leather boarded or printed; corrected grain.

    Black hatch grain calf. It is a standard leather for MTO. You don't see it in RTW often, but G&G has a pair of Wigmores in "black Alpine" RTW on their website. It looks the same has black hatch to me. Very tempting.

    That is irresponsible. The only alternative is theft.

    It is great that we have he GMTO st James in pearl grey through but I was hoping we would have more time because I am still waiting on my Kudu Thorpe on the MH71 so I can figure out if my new narrow width and size combo will be enough or if I will need another width more narrow.

    I want in but u dint want it risk this pair not being narrow enough. If the Thorpe are a bit wide at least I can wear boot socks under. That isn't going to happen with st James so I'm a bit worried.
    Do we have an estimate on the kudu Thorpe then?

    Make it retroactive and sign me up... I'm like practically there this year. Think the Pearl Grey might be the 12th.

    I have heard the 890 is a bit more generous than say the 202/82, but wrt to EG 82 vs GG MH71, my own experience trying on each:

    202/82 — 7.5E
    MH71 — 7F

    I didn't get to try the TG73, but SA insisted I would be the same size as with the MH71. I don't completely buy that, given what I've read about the TG73 toe box and my wide feet with high instep.

    That is very interesting we both have same experience but they, opposite of each other. I have two TG73 last take same size and I placed a same size order for MH71 which I have never tried. And yes SA was right you would take 7F on MH71 last that is general rule of thumb depending upon how Tg73 last fits you. If you have wide feet you may go up,to 7.5

    Just received a new pair of Warwick with Deco last, price is good just the normal RTW price and no customs duty to US. The Deco last looks really nice.

    Not sure how you managed to get Deco Last at regular RTW prices, but those look great.

    Congrats!!!

    This one is on GG's online shop, so you can order it from retailers as RTW price, but not all the retailers will do that, I asked Skoak, but I was told they are not allowed to pull stock inventory for the none Deco style on Deco last, then I asked another retailer in US, they can do that and the price is almost the same as Skoak's. Warwick is the only style on Deco last on GG's website now, hope could come more.
