    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.

    • Gaziano & Girling Thorpe

    • Racing Green Hatchgrain

    • MH71 or GG06 last in F-width

    • Dainite w/ Storm Welt

    • Standard lining

    • Hidden eyelets

    • Dark brown midsole?


    I'm good with GG06 for the last as well, but i'm good either way. Objections to GG06 for the last?

    Done!

    This leaves us with one maybe and we need one more person. We're nearly there. I've sent a couple of messages out to a couple of people that might be interested.

    WOW, darn it, can't believe this is actually happening! This messes up with my plans...

    Can we keep the MH71 option open?

    I may be interested. How is sizing compared to Alden Barrie last or EG 82 last?

    I would prefer GG06 since I have a thorpe coming on MH71, but I'm flexible. Is the last a deal breaker for you?


    I would say same size as barrie and EG82. This would be an F width, but I have Galways in an 8.5E and I had to size up to a 9E for the GG06. For this one I'm going with an 8.5F.

    Wait, will there be speed hooks? Or is it blind eyelets all the way?

    I proposed all blind eyelets, but I'm good either way.

    I am interested in the green hatch grain GMTO, but need an E width. Is that not happening?

    Does this racing green color hatch grain look dark as in the photo in real life? I saw some photos of other racing green calf shoes and its looks lighter in color. If it is dark enough (closer to black), I am also interested.
