    Hmm, had me pay the full cost upfront. Perhaps because it was a restock and not an MTO?

    Probably right about the stock RTW models. I can vouch for the 50/50 for MTO, which is my only experience...

    G&G asks stockists for 50% non-refundable deposits with MTOs, according to Dean Girling. Strangely, my retailer asked I pay in full once the shoe is done, however.

    most likely. my RTW were paid in full upfront, as it should be.

    Been some Gaziano & Girlings factory visits published at various places lately, and I just did another one on my blog. Might interest some of you anyway, some interesting news that I think will be new to many of you, such as problems with Horween hatch grain which forced them to strip down and recolor every shoe they make out of the leather, revision of retailers, and plans about a possible new hand welted top line.

    Here it is: http://shoegazingpunktse.blogspot.se/2013/10/reportage-besok-hos-gaziano-girling.html

    The blog is in Swedish, but you can use the translation tool on the upper right of the web version of the page to translate it to your language.

    Great write up and photos, from the translation, so G&G's vendor will be only Bespoke England? So no more supplied to Bodileys and EoM etc?
