Gieves & Hawkes is trying to draw a line between their Gieves line, calling it diffusion, and their Gieves & Hawkes RTW, which is now some of the most boring and uninspiring clothing being sold in London. Joe Casely-Hayford is now designing the Gieves line, and in fact in an interview in one of the UK men's fashion mags this month said he was trying to take things in a more tailored, bespoke-inspired direction. They dropped the previous designer James Whishaw in a bit of a hurry -- perhaps this means no more pre-wrinkled dress shirts and pre-crumpled sport coats? In the states, Gieves had a corner at Bloomingdales, but that may or may not have ebbed away. I would check their website. They are now coming to the Bon Marche in Paris.
I think the buckshot shoe is a neat idea, and the two jokes (Cheney and shot foot) very clever. However, it doesn't appear to be completely successful. Like LK says, it does look like inkspots.
