    Nice shoes, Jamaican. More pics! I can clarify later what my whinge was about the medallion, but for the record, my G&Gs are the same size as the OPs. 13.5???? [​IMG]

    Sorry for adding the two sizes [​IMG] Found a post with EG 12 and knew you gonna clarify it yourself. [​IMG]

    My EGs are 12s. My G&Gs probably should be too. My feet are freakishly large enough as it is without people like you adding sizes. [​IMG]

    I'm wearing mine today. (Inspired by this thread?). Anyway, it's hard to tell from the first couple of pictures jamaican published whether he has the same thing going on, but my niggle about the Mitchells (in 11.5) is that the wing and the medallion are too far apart. Or rather, for my taste, I would prefer the wing (which is just broguing) to come further down the toe box and end closer to the medallion. The scale of the medallion on mine is fine, AFAIAC.

    What a fantastic looking shoe I would certainly like to invest in a similar pair.

    Hope to see more pictures soon.[​IMG]

    Beautiful shoes mate. Your brogues do indeed have a lot of funk.

    Then from photobucket, just copy and paste them along with your message

    That is how I was forced to do and resulted in large pics being posted to boot

    Instead of copying and pasting the direct link, try copying and pasting the IMG code.

    Question is, is this medallion smaller than normal or somehow unconventionally positioned. My CJ Cliffords have a medallion that takes up much more of the space of the toe area on the wing tip.

    now these are much better! thanks for them - the waist treatment is awesome and it is comparable to my bespokes - now i am tempted to get me MK1'a resoled so that i can get the real deal on the waist[​IMG]

    looking forward to seeing pic of the cannes this too is one of my favorite's from G&G's RTW collection

    It is smaller than average. I kind of like it though. Gorgeous color, great looking shoes.

    I looked at the waist treatment on the samples of the MTO new styles in March and compared them with bespoke samples on display... the MTOs are giving EG TD a run for their money and may be equivalent or superior, however, I think you are being too generous when you say they are comparable to the bespokes. The bespoke sample shoes Tony showed me were just in another league... much finer, more precise, even more care taken, sharper fiddle back.

    As regards the fit for these, they hurt when I put them on the first time and will need some breaking in time. I was surprised at this as my hove shoes (yes, a derby so this may be the difference) fit like a glove straight out of the box. I do have a high instep though...

    The quality is excellent and has come on even further than the Mk. 1 MTOs I got last year. I wonder where the two Gs will improve quality now. Tony spoke last year about making an MTO with no gap between the heel and the upper, like on the bespoke shoes... Luk-cha perhaps you should hold off your resole projects till then!
