This has been my week; after receiving my two pair of G&G bespokes, I've now also received the EG MTM monks ordered at the Mansion trunk show back in March. For all those who say monks should not have a medallion, BEHOLD (click on the thumb for a larger view): (RL's exclusive Barretto w/Bamford medallion)

They're bespoke (I think they're around 1,570 pounds).

I think Wilkes's model has always been to stock the finest from all over the world, which makes his Kiton selection no surprise.

If you look back at Tony's EG portfolio, these were two of his unique bespoke designs. He's now offering a MTM version of each (though, to my mind, the bespoke version has a higher design quality than the MTM -- hence the price premium).

Enough voices cried out for larger shots of the G&G bespokes that I felt I owed the forum an improved product. So, here they are, again. And stay tuned, my EG MTM medallion monks -- ordered at the Mansion's trunk show in March -- have just landed. Should arrive by week's end. Will post on the weekend. Enjoy.
