My meeting with G&G - Page 4

post #46 of 60
Ron,

Apologies, I did misunderstand you. Any additional comments on the MTO quality that you did see, setting aside style preferences?

In the past, Tony has told me that he doesn't want to intrude on Cleverley's signature "exotic" leather, even if he could get some.

Portnoy, I think you need some alligator shoes. Not croco (= for GANGSTER) but alligator. Or shagreen.

I'm not much on exotics but I do have a pristine pair of J. Fenestrier alligator oxfords in black that are from the days when Fenestrier made exquisite shoes.

I never wear them.

Thanks John, that's what I thought to be the case. Not that having Cleverley make them would be settling for second best.

Better off without them Andrew. They really are nt that attractive IMO. They get less so each time you look at them. Of course YMMV.

Since I'm nowhere near as conversant as many here on the technical details of shoe construction, I'll defer comment on those issues to someone who knows what he's talking about. What I did find interesting is how much chiseling they're able to offer on their MTO models. I had believed that a refinement such as chiseling would be reserved for special orders, such as bespoke, but that's not true. I was also impressed with how flat they're able to compress the seams of overlapping pieces of leather on their brogued and cap toes, to an almost imperceptible degree.

These prices reflect the VAT refund.

1. Am I right to conclude that prices start @ under $700 ?
2. What form of payment do they accept ?
3. Is there a sales tax involved ?
4. Are they willing to sell their display models ?
5. Can cash customers get a discount ?



P.S. Somebody was asking about G&G exotic skin models

Though they certainly are, stylistically speaking, beautiful objects, where would you ever wear such shoes?

To a yakuza sit-down.
Could someone answer my Qs now ?

I tend to agree. I really wanted a pair and was really attracted to the story more than anything. But the criss-cross stamping on the leather is kind of ugly to my eye.

Those are perfect for a nice spring shopping trip as they're too florid for winter.

You should e-mail G&G with your questions.
They are the only ones who can answer with any authority.
