My Grant wholecuts are a bit tight to enter. But once in all is good.

No biggie - I just have to open the lacings up wide and use the old shoe horn.

My other pair are dub monks, 1/2 size larger and open wide for easy entry.

^^^^^^ Sounds a bit pornographic doesn't it? ^^^^^^^^^^^

In any case the snugger the shoe and the less extra forward toe space the better the creasing will work out. Much better to have a RTW shoe be a bit too snug when new than a bit roomy.

The carved medallion is beautiful. Didn't know G&G was doing such things.

And the finishing on the tan whole cuts looks quite different from any G&G I've seen.

Are these bespoke samples or upcoming new offerings?

In any case THANKS for the porn!

All of those pictures were taken at The Armory, so I'm going to guess they're bespoke samples. The last one... has some indications of being worn (scratches, cracks in the polish, creases) so I'm going to guess those either belong to Luk's or someone who was there and let him take a picture.

Edit: Or, you know, that.

hmmmmmm........... a bit like a Berluti 'branded' shoe aren't they.

While I'm uncertain that I'm crazy about that particular pattern running round the whole shoe, I am certain that I really like the medallion. And I can certainly imagine other patterns that I would be happy to see running round the whole shoe.

I also like the idea of the pattern being accomplished by laser. As the shoe then becomes a product of the integration of technology and hand craftsmenship.

I wonder if I drew up a pattern in Autocad if they could 'plug it into' the laser. We do such things all the time in the architectural world when creating custom woodworking etc. etc.

Anyway - just some random musings.

if batman had G&Gs (he probably does) they would totally be lasered with the batsign.

Gorgeous shoe. Are there differently angled shots of this one? Would love to see it from top.
