    JS, you have MTO from G&G so you totally have creds! I know you've been working hard to join a GMTO so I hope this works for you!

    Shoes are costing too much. I think I'm going to focus on socks for my "hobby" for the next few years... much cheaper!

    Hmm, interesting. I'd be interested if it was a Vintage Oak Burnham on TG73 (maybe MH71 but probably not). I'm an E but I have an F on the way tomorrow to try on...

    But guys, do you usually size down for chelsea boots from oxford sizes?
    If no, I am a UK9F
    If yes, maybe UK9E

    That's over $200.00 Canadian for those shoe trees. Is that right?

    For G&G lasted shoe trees, yes. That's why they are optional. :) We have our own trees that fit very well for 640 SEK ex VAT.

    I think money will flow into your bank account if you can develop 3 piece boot tree like Bespoke England did[​IMG]

    So, do we have 5 for the Burnham GMTO yet? I think the more favorable specs were vintage oak, MH71 or TG73, single leather sole?

    Can we bother Skoak for a quote on this GMTO? It might help to rally, or scare people off... :hide:

    Do they fit wide sizes though?

    I actually had the same question for EG trees, since they are not lasted trees, do they even make a G width tree? Or do they just jam the next size up tree in there?

    Nice to see a wide GMTO getting put together.

    Love that @tifosi is added for every GMTO. Lol
