Moo, my hat's off to the man who can rock some norvegese stefanobi monks on Monday, then come back with these on Tuesday. You are a man of varied tastes... all of them good, it seems.

Thank you! My crappy blackberry pics really do not do them justice. The shell on these shined up beautifully.

Cinnamon-esque color

Beautiful color, but I don't think I would have chosen a black edge and heel. Maybe something closer to the color of the tassel.

That is the result of a close to perfect fit and buttery soft upper where the stitches are properly placed and executed.

BTW they are beautiful (not surprinsingly)!

That G&G last fits you really well ... nothing more, nothing less.

Yup. I ordered the AS version of these sans medallion with hand sewn apron. Basically the RLPL Addison with a complimentary sole edge color. Can't wait!

This thread always becomes a G+G gaggle threk. The shoes are pedestrian (no pun intended) they are not a great example of G+G design, workmanship or style. They look like fuzzy dice in the front of a late '60s Chevy. Sorry-- bad execution. I don't know who to blame the maker or the purchaser.
