I mean how far the welt extends from the body of the shoe. G&G looks very thin and stylized. The stitching itself is very close to the shoe.I find Meccariellos to have a welt that has more of presence and is more visible. This is especially true at the front of the shoe. This isn't to say I don't like it, I think it suits many styles very well and has, in my experience, been easier to take care of. I have always just presumed it to be house style since Stefano Bermer...
I thought that the thickness was simply part of the style, not a negative. I have never really seen anyone else match G&G's thinness because their style is particularly thin.
Willing to PM it?
Antonio can make any style you like, although his Aurum Soft Square is similar. My soft square is below from when he was developing the last. A last modification is relatively cheap too.  As for standard line compared to G&G it is a slightly different beast. G&G has the closest welt cutting I've seen and the finishing is top notch. These days Antonio's sole finishing is just as good as G&Gs with more choice of color. The welt, however, is still going to be a little thicker...
Hatch grain is deer skin? Or do you mean copy of reindeer skin? Beautiful shoe.
Any real life photos?
I'm a small guy, could you adjusted the size down a little bit to better fit me?
Just ordered three, that is a great deal.   Any collars you think would go particularly well?
Up 23% on this one :D. More lucky timing than anything else.  Still a big fan of oil related stocks. I have been picking up exposure in the different sectors over the past week. XOM has been my smallest gainer so far. CHK has done okay. Looking into a good choice for an oil servicing company.
Did anyone here get the pastel flour pocket square on the middle left? I'd be willing to trade for it.
