It's a great looking shoe. I'd wear those.

They look like ink-spots.

I think it should be called The Accountant.

I don't like the way the brogueing looks on these shoes. It kind of looks like the brogueing machine went haywire. But, on the other hand, I am eagerly awaiting my purchase of a pair of Barker Blacks with the skull medallion next month. To hell with Edward Green and John Lobb.

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.

If I remember correctly, I saw some G&H branded shoes in the C&J factory store in Northhampton back in 2004. Could these be C&Js?

It's a great way to get rid of the rejects.. Punch a hole in the wrong place? No worries. Just do it a few more times at random places and we'll brand it Gieves.

They could be C&J, although Gieves being the cheaper line of G&H, these shoes could be made anywhere.

Not my taste at all! In my gun editor mode, I must point out that the patterning is properly styled "birdshot." Buckshot makes holes from approximately .25-inch to .36-inch in diameter.

I knew it!

This type of shoe should come only from Holland & Holland or Purdey.
At least they know their buckshot from their birdshot.

They might say this shoe is a lot of bullshot.
