GG's whole cut chelsea is a work of art, let's do this gents!
Quote:Bringing this over wholesale to the top of this page, because awesome. I am in for an F fitting when you get 5 gents with impeccable taste to join you.
Espresso or vintage oak F width Although MH71 is a great last, I feel this Burnham looks best on TG73 (actually Deco but I am afraid they won't do shoes in Deco last at benchmade quality and price), do you agree?
I am pretty sure that they will not do Deco last at bench-made quality and price. That would be too much to ask. Personally I cannot wear TG73 and I know that some member find TG73 overly aggressive hence MH71 comes as a nice compromise.
I am in love with my 10.5 G width MH71 last, although i would not be against TG73. The Deco last is not for me though...
I prefer the MH71 here.
If you have trouble finding the 5th I can join this Burnham GMTO, I'm an F. I'd personally chose Vintage Oak, I am not a fan of the very dark brown hues. The burnish I find GG do so well does not come to its right in darker colors. MH71 would be my preferred last too although TG73 will work too.
^^^ Cool beans. I'd be down with Vintage Oak.
This Burnham GMTO might just happen...
Not as relevant to the GMTO but are the loafers on the far left in vintage pine, chestnut, or maple?
The rise of the chelsea I'm surprised there would be so much interest there
Maple, from left to right Maple, Pine, Chestnut, Cedar, Vintage Oak.
Espresso and Mocha are aniline leathers so they will not take burnishing.
I thought vintage oak and mocha are pretty similar in color if not the same?
I'm on the fence on this one, but as another F, I might have to concider if we have enough F's joining in...
Quote:Well it looks like the Fs are coming out of the woodwork. Awesome. Whichever gets us to the critical mass of 5 is good by me. Please come down from the fence and play with all the cool kids.
