Is GTO just a model name? What about 1 year? I have seen 3 years too. What does it mean? Thanks.

What is the relation then between the code on the inner label and the wash then? Say, 2-GTO-14? I really wish I could find some reference table. My favourite pair is one I found accidentally at Off Fifth

Um, well, the years are easy 01, 02, and 03, but the otherones you just gotta know. 2-GTO-14 is the Filter wash GTO, which has built in grease stains, iirc.

I shop too much, have a good natural memory, and work with large datasets (for a real living). All this is put to good use here


Of course, I've got nothing on those shoe guys on the main forum who can pick out a Edward Green 888 last from 100 paces!

Damn. I may have asked this before (I forget things really easily
) but what are the names of the MPH and MPO model lines? They seem awfully similar to the GTO just a somwehat higher rise. Ah crap. I should just get myself some APCs and get it over with
