Ktown, G&G are worth it. I enjoy my Vass and other Hungarian shoes. Yet they have a different feel to them. I have found the Vass JR soles to be more durable than G&G's. I prefer the quality of leather G&G uses. Make sure you do not have a high in step or else G&G oxfords like the St James will be uncomfortable. Unless you order them MTO and ask if they can use a fitter on the last instep zone in order to give them more room on the instep. Too bad G&G no longer...
I have made 9 bespoke shoes and 1 boot using his "standard" squared and chiseled last I no longer wear any oxford balmorals boots as i have found them all to be uncomfortable and i am not debating trying a bespoke version. I got rid of my 2 G&G, Clifford and Ron Rider balmorals as i did not like the feel of them Nothing is as comfortable as a bespoke side gussetted shoe, and that will be my 10th and 11th designs...stay tuned With shipping and better quality leather,I...

I wanted a darker color so he re-finished them in the same dark burgundy as the balmoral wing tips. We used a 2nd Springline bespoke loafer last...and they fit better than any slip on I have ever owned. But the color is so special

Clifford Roberts 2015 His communication skills are now efficiently honed to quickly respond via FB messenger or e-mail (unlike circa 2011) I pay an upcharge for bespoke quality leather. He is not a one man shoe as he works with local contacts for lasts and shoe trees via Springline, pattern making, closing the lower to the upper, and hand sewing the apron. Although he does the traditional shoes, its niche designs that I have found are his specialty. I have learned the...
Fit is solid as its a bespoke last from Springline. And the steel eyelets rock

The KN14 is the soft squared loafer ONLY last. Years ago Tony advised me against using it in lieu of the TG73 on a non loafer shoe. Try the MH 71 Instead.
The DB shawl lapel was a terrific idea and it looks great
G7G patina service The monk Chukha boot has the Vlad Red Both the Deco Collcut and Windsor monk straps have the dark Margaux The Deco Byron side gusset does not have the patina, but originally had Deco black below the balmoral line, so I asked them to throw a splash of red/burgundy First up is the Deco Collcut side strap monk with dark Marguax patina Second I have the Deco Collcut next to the Windsor monk...both in dark Margaux Both shoes originally started as Vintage...
