    Grant.

    Now that I've settled on a size for this last it's time for me to contemplate which model of Deco I'm interested in. :tounge:

    Clearly MTO. The grant usually comes on the DG70 that looks like the TG73, correct?

    Many thanks, everyone. Stay tuned for more shoe p0rn, I've a pair of NOS Edwin Clapp longwings a-coming.

    Isshi, my biggest inspiration is the style of 20s British upper class toffs. I'm sure it explains a lot of my choices.

    Correct about the last - they are on the TG73.

    I'm not certain but I believe this is the 'standard' last for the Grant. In any case I did not custom order them - they are RTW.

    Nope, the sinatra is standard on the TG73, however it lacks a medallion.

    First outing and an expensive one for the C&J's.
    I really like these as an alternative to my ' Go To' Tetbury's.
    Scuffed the front right toe getting out of my car at the dealers - replacing a rim and tire. You have gotta' love the SHIT roads in DC and MD...

    that bites!

    and on their FIRST outing? yikes.

    at least it looks like it will polish out with a little time and effort.

    Alright now, let's not get crazy here. That's nothing. Polish alone & you're done. After 5 polishings, it'll look even better than before the scuff.

    US 1930's had so much influence in todays' styles it's ridiculous.

    Be sure to take some sole pics of the Clapps. They made Lickable Soles 80 years ago.

    Simple Ferragamo, Revival model. I gave them a good polishing though, might be getting the hang of it :nodding:

    I have used a method I learned a long time ago to fix a scuff like this:

    Use a medium bristle tooth brush with a little dab of tube tooth paste (not the gel type), and brush the scuff enough to smooth it out a little [not too hard]. Wipe the scuff clean with a damp cotton cloth, then apply a few dabs of leather conditioner. Let the conditioner dry for a day, then polish both boots with a matching color cream polish.

    This will not remove the scuff, but it will smooth it out somewhat and lessen the damage. After you polish your boots a few times, as per your normal shoe care pattern, the toe will be fine.
