The Burnham, Chelsea boot is now in stock just in time for autumn. This is a classic riding style boot but G&G takes them to a new level. Unlike most Chelsea’s the Burnham is a wholecut boot made from a single piece of calfskin. It’s a formidable task to block the uppers on the last, and there is very little margin for error.
The result is a super sleek, elegant shape and a fit that wraps your feet like a sock. Made on G&G’s signature chiseled last these boot pack an awful lot of style.
Burnham TG73, Vintage Oak, Single Oak Bark Soles
The tasteful lines of the Rothschild are a thing of beauty. This sophisticated wingtip on the smart round DG70 last is in Vintage Cedar. The Rothschild is stunningly handsome a classic full brogue wingtip yet there is a wonderful balance about them. They pair beautifully with blue, grey or brown suits. And of course they feature the tapered waist and fiddleback oak bark soles a hallmark of the G&G collection.

The Gaziano & Girling Burnham is a wholecut Chelsea boot. Wholecuts are very handsome and comfortable because they’re made from a single piece of leather and have no seams. They’re also much more labor intensive to produce. The owner of this pair had them made up to wear on his motorcycle, thus the Scotch Grain upper and Ridgeway soles.
Burnham Black Arran Grain, Ridgeway Soles MH71 Last – MTO*
Gaziano & Girling offers three Scotch Grains the finest being Pin Grain, then Highland, and finally Arran which is the deepest. Once the leather is stretched over the last the grain smoothes out quite a bit. It’s particularly nice on this wholecut. The grain adds a subtle texture and a slightly more rugged look which works well with the heavy lug soles.
*MTO shoes and boots are not part of our stock lines, they are Made To Order.
