    I am thinking of doing an MTO on the Deco Cooper or TG73 Sinatra in either racing green och midnight blue. What are your opinions on this? Too out there?

    I would be wearing it with odd trousers or jeans, I do not wear suits more then 3-4 times a year

    Both look great in both colours. I tried on a pair of Cooper's today and I was pleasantly surprised that I liked them so much in black calf. I tend not to wear black shoes myself but the Cooper has began to change my thought process. I have a pair of Grant (Sinatra with Medallion) on the TG73 which I love but I do find if difficult to find clothes to match the Racing green calf in casual wear but these do match 2 suits I wear with them.

    i think the midnight blue would be nicer than the racing green - easier to wear, and what i hear is navy is the new black!!

    Hi there Nick! Thanks for your input! I really like green shoes but as you say it seems to be a bit too difficult to match

    P.s Any date set on my Canterbury MTO?


    Thanks Luk-Cha, I am leaning towards navy. Saw the pictures of the midnight blue/ anvy suede on the Astaire in the GG Pr0n-thread and it looked really nice

    Thanks Spoo! I've understood you had a thing for green shoes


    So if Navy is the new black; is racing green the new brown :)

    Just my personal opinion of course, but Racing Green would probably look nicer with jeans, although Midnight Blue would probably be more versatile and wearable with suits.

    Here are a few nice pics of some Racing Green Gables.

    looks more olive than racing green, or is rg different to british racing green?

    as op is planning to stick with g&g and stock up on various models, imo, it doesn't matter what's his choice this round.

    I notice that those Gables have a "black oak bark sole and black lining" (quote taken from the caption in small text below the last photograph). The black oak bark sole isn't a MTO sole option shown on the G&G site nor is it shown in the MTO buying tool on the Bespoke England site. Is this something that is offered on MTO via special request or was this a one-off done for Leaves & Tung?
