Gaziano & Girling Appreciation & Shoe Appreciation Theard - Page 218

for me, i dont think i would go bespoke unless i knew exactly what i wanted. for that much coin i think one should have thought through exactly what THEY want, and then go from there with the guidance of the shoe maker. for example, i want something with a special elongated medallion, and maybe a different toe box than what they have. maybe a unique brownish hue... but that may be just me, think what you like, dont build a bespoke shoe with specs of what others want. just my 2 cents, good luck.

Hmmm..Interesting.. do you have a picture?

 

 

Unfortunately my burnished ones are ungoing repair at the cobblers at the moment, but here's a picture of a very old much loved favourite pair of mine just to give you a picture. These are AZOR LA Mode shoes.

Hi all.. 

I'm new here and I am a G&G addict.

Meeting up with Dean Girling in London mid May and I'm going bespoke.

I haven't decided what to go for yet and would really appreciate your input. Currently I own:


[*] St James II, Vintage Cherry
[*] Sinatra, Black Calf
[*] Oxford, Black Calf
[*] Hove, Vintage Chestnut
[*] Gable, Vintage Oak


I'm thinking something Grant'ish.. 
Any thoughts?

/Elfsberg

enjoy the experience.

Ditto.

Fritzl, are you going to create a polo shirt porn thread?
