    Burnham would be sweet, i admire the GG whole cut chelsea boot. :drool:

    I could be down for the Wells depending on the leather choice, but i love the MH71 and TG73 too much to go with the Woburn on GG06 last...

    I would love to do a G&G Isham on the MH71. What is the cost like?
    Am I the second one to agree on this?

    The price for Isham is 7600 SEK ex VAT if we get a GMTO going. G&G trees are 1300 SEK ex VAT.

    Are GG trees still mandatory to all MTOs?

    No, we have changed this policy. Trees optional for MTOs.

    Might be down for that Isham after all then...

    By the way, what is Vintage Arran Grain leather? I have never heard of that one, is it one of their Highland Grain leathers?

    That's a welcome news, I was really upset about having to order shoe trees for boots. While we are on the subject of GMTO. Are there any interested parties in G & G Burnham Chelsea boots in some shade of brown preferably espresso. Here are the pictures

    I would be down, but would be relegated to back of the line due to my G width needs...

    I find it to be an overall more snug fit, most notably around the ball width as well as in the instep.

    I just got my cordovan chukkas from Sweden. The fit is perfect! Thanks!

    That's my experience also, comparing boots in the same size for both lasts.

    Just to clarify... When you say same size in both lasts do you mean labeled size? For instance 7.5UK Rain and 7.5UK 82? Or do you mean same size like you would (most likely) actually wear; 7.5UK Rain and 8UK 82?

    I think most people size down 1 full size (from U.S.) for Rain and 1/2 for 82 last.

    I was comparing my UK 9 Carmina 973 boots on the Rain last with my UK 9 EG Galways on the 82 last. Both fit, but the Rain boots are a bit more roomy. Both are tall derby boots.

    That said, I am really on the border with size in the Rain last when it comes to shoes. I have a few pairs in UK 8.5 that work, but one that is too tight. Since I can't stand a close fitting tall boot, and like to be able to wear slightly thicker socks in winter, I go with UK 9 Rain in a boot.

    OK, yea. I would imagine the Rain being quite roomy in that situation.
