    G&G BRG is a superb colour. I recently took delivery of some BRG Montand IIs and they are just beautiful.

    Its the MH71 last though. If I do it on the exact last offered on Skoaks website then I saw money. I really like both lasts

    I'm also going to be ordering an Antibes and getting Dandy Shoe Care to finish it in something similar to that oxblood, but with a contrasting strap. Maybe a super dark brown or a black. Got to take advantage of the pricing while we have it.

    But isn't the one on Skoaks website not in brg? So you're paying mto pricing either way?

    That's an awesome idea. Think it's possible to get a GMTO for antibes in maple? lol.

    You can get it in Pine without any MTO charge so I'm considering doing that. Though I'd be up for participating in a light color for sure. Either way I'll be sending it to the DSC service to get a cool patina and to make the strap a diff color. Though, if G&G can do the strap in a diff color it could make it look even better than having the patina changed?

    Ah true. I'm size F though so I don't think that will fly. It would be better if GG would actually just allow you to get burnt oxblood. They do have a few models with different straps.

    G&G Mailman GMTO

    Let's Get This Done Before it becomes even more expensive.

    Model : G&G Rothschild
    Last : MH71
    Soles : Ridgeway
    Welt: Storm
    Color : Chestnut Hatch Grain

    This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling's classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it's tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.

    Participants so far, for this GMTO:

    @dddrees (E)
    @CHRK33
    @emiristol (F)

    Expressed interest

    Patrik or Gabriel,

    Sorry if this has already been asked, but is there an approximate arrival date for the January EB MTOs? Would there be a difference if you ordered at the beginning of the month versus the end of the month?

    Thanks so much!

    We're currently looking into this. Communication will go out by email within a couple of weeks. Because of the huge number of orders, it will take some time to verify an estimated delivery time. Please be patient.

    I was sent a pair of BRG Grants as a try on pair before joining my first MTO a couple years back. They were almost black. The green was very subtle. So gorgeous I almost looked into paying for them and just keeping them.
