    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    One width only is correct.

    Thanks a lot @laufer and @Leaves. It is a pity GG only allows one width for GMTO´s, so I am afraid I will not to take the risk going for a E width in that boot taking into account the cost of it.

    @Laufer & @Montecristo905: No chance at all with an F width?. Thick socks or an insole are perfect accesories for that boot [​IMG].

    @Leaves. I am the one leading the crazy spanish GMTO for that outstanding EB boot in the 36799 last that has been ordered. If not possible in this occasion, the Thorpe will be the next pair with you.

    Cheers.

    Thanks Patrik. I'll be back for another pair in the right size soon. +1 for great service from Gabriel in helping me figure it out.

    Probably not. I have a pair of GG boots in wide width and they seem too large for my feet. I would probably stick with the E width this time.
    It does not look like we are getting a traction on this GMTO, so far only three of us are confirmed.

    I pushed some shoe aficionados here into this; the make-up is based in this boot. No more clues, just wait some weeks...They will rock.

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to raise a glass to everyone at Skoak. My EG's just arrived and they are a great pair of shoes! Very sturdy, very handsome! I ordered last Wednesday and they arrived before noon today (Monday).


    Thank you for another pleasant transaction.

    I just bought a bunch of ties from Leeves' personal collection. Can't wait to receive them!

    ^^^ Three winner there! Unfortunately all too narrow for me. I guess that spares me the difficulty of deciding between the Glencoe and Thorpe.

    That Glencoe would have been in the shopping cart and and on its way to Fedex along with remainder of my order from this morning if it was F width.
    Its sad really...

    I feel you rogerP, no way my foot fits into E width G&G comfortably without being 2-3sizes longer than it has to be.

    I think 202 last on this model is more appropriate than chiseled last. I have Alderley coming in this color so it would be redundant to by a shoe in this too.
    If you decide to bring this model back in different color, do let me know.
    One question, doing this model on 202 last falls under MTO 2 option right?
    Whatever happened to that special Pomegranate color? I assume this will never happen now but it does not hurt to ask.

    Are these
    [​IMG]
    the same colour as these?
    [​IMG]

    Judging by the shade shifting of the wooden table and the leather following, it would seem like it. 1st shot both reddish, more like rosewood, 2nd shot more tan/yellowish.
    I assume the daylight(?) = 2nd shot is more accurate then?
