    When I was fit in October on the 890, it was the first time an EG shoe fit my foot. I found the fit fairly similar to the TG73 and was the same size in both. Neither the 202 or the 888 fit my feet, so I might not be the best comparison, but just wanted to relay my person experience with the last.

    I've got a DOak Galway and the Bonafe MTO (804 jodhpur in Etrusco calf with a medallion toe and chained norvegese) coming in in Aug - can't wait. It's an addiction for sure

    Gaziano & Girling Oakham is confirmed and online, note that orders must be placed before end of day today February 27 to take advantage of old pricing.

    Damn those Swedes…..

    did you really have to go with Laughton nightshade refill preorder now, tempting me to buy one more pair before the price increase?

    I think I am losing count on all the shoes I have ordered this month… galways, laughtons and carmina u-wing on preorder, and I still have to receive those burgundy chukkas, liverano tie and some brushes….

    End of February and the year's budget for shoes is blown already…..

    Increase the prices already so we can all get some rest!

    So do all orders before the price increase need to be made by Feb 27?

    Done, dusted and paid in full.

    Very happy to be able to participate in this GMTO for all sorts of reasons.

    Price is great.

    Plus, and this is one of the benefits of this forum, I wouldn't necessarily have picked this for myself if left to my own devices, but as with the Burnham, having seen the pic, I fell in love with it.

    Kudos to those who drove it and got it over the line before the price hike, in particular @badsha .

    And lastly, a thank you to Gabriel at Skaoktiebolaget for his excellent service throughout February.

    That's my 3rd G&G MTO for the month. I'm now gonna breathe out and take a break.

    Wow, I was just discussing that possible MTO with someone. Were you eavesdropping? [​IMG]

    Can't wait to see it. I think Fox suede would look killer on the Isham, maybe even GG06 last.

    I need to wait for a few MTOs before I can put up yet another. Ugh, this game...

    Yes, actually the deposit has to be balanced too.



    Sorry, no.
