    I like how G&G is getting so much love lately. Many of their designs are very attractive.

    How specifically are they planning to change the St. James design, after the GMTO? Thanks.

    Unfortunately is the only boot style of which I am not a fan.

    That's going to be one hell of an expensive boot. 2.5 to 3k or more probably for shell Chelsea. Very unlikely for a GMTO but at that price you should probably just mto

    it all comes down to the pricetag.

    You think? That would definitely push it past my price range.

    If people like the way it looks I'm sure G&G could duplicate it to some extent in calf.

    From the G&G appreciation thread.

    About $2300 USD as a single MTO in Shell, including lasted trees, ex VAT.

    By my calclation, a Burnham GMTO in shell cordovan would be about 13600 SEK (ex. VAT) or approximately $1840. This is without shoe trees of course.

    I actually don't like cordovan, so i would be out of this one. I would not mind some kind of dark cedar version in calf, but my monies are spoken for till next year... :embar:

    Edit: Just saw Leave's response, so what he said... :hide:

    G&G has definitely produced this pattern in calf, and I believe EG has as well. I am unmoved by a seamless shell boot. Does it look cool, yes. But I have the feeling that shell will roll and crease, and won't look nearly as streamlined over time.

    That puts it out of my acceptable price range. Oh well.

    Would possibly participate if there was a GMTO for a calf version though.


    Leaves - Are you guys planning on stocking the new St James model and have you seen it in person? Not sure if you could share some insight?

    G&G is getting love because EG shot themselves in the foot by not allowing GMTOs. So everyone moved to G&G

    I think it has a lot to do with EG dropping their GMTO program, and GG dropping their required shoe tree with every order policy...

    Here's the proposed GMTO @nickrut

    Don't have any more info on the new St. James, but they will let us keep our old St James II Vintage Cherry style for now, as we have been stocking it since day one.
