Here are some Gianni photos, shell feels a little more moist than Lindrick / Marlow but maybe that's cause it's new. Going to put flat Alden laces on when I start wearing, don't think these laces go with the dressiness of the boot





Lot's of bloom! (Click to show)


And comparison shots, lined up to floorboard then put shoe brush, not exact but close, Lindrick is 10.5, Gianni is 10

Steven,

thank you for the comparison. I ordered 11 but those were too big. I ordered 10.5 but those were apparently damaged in shipment and going back. I wonder if i should go for 10 also. I am usually size 10 UK in C&J and 10.5 in G&G

We are same size I think, shoe just feels really roomy overall. Remember Lindricks were quite tight until corkbed sunk in, but the 10 Gianni already feels comfortable now which is a little weird. FWIW though the 10.5 I ordered as well feels the same overall with just a tiny bit more length (which I don't need)

Thanks,

I will try different socks I would prefer to wear it with the thick socks anyways.

Wow! Awesome job! The look awesome. I do agree with you that the laces feel a bit casual for the shoes.

Thank you. Great pics. I'm curious to see if the flat Alden laces are long enough for this boot!!

While I think the Lindrick is awesome (esp at $654+tax), the broguing around the ankle is a little awkward.  I prefer the Skye2.  I suppose though, if you're trying to obtain a slightly different look from the Marlow, the Lindrick is a solid alternative.  I also prefer the dainite sole on a somewhat casual boot like this.

^ To each his own. While I think the Skye is beautiful and generally prefer my boots to have a rubber sole, I am wearing my new Lindricks and was in fact just admiring the broguing around the ankle! I am definitely a fan.

RTP, I also had an issue with that at first.  But if you look at your Marlow wingtips, it has broguing around the ankles as well.  And if you think of the Lindrick as the Marlow's bigger brother, then it kind of makes sense.  It least to me, anyway. :)

Thanks for the pics stevent. I like the C&J laces but they can look like tie string thus cheapening the refined look of the gianni. That's not to say string laces are cheap, after all EG uses them on all their boots. Only difference is EG is about twice as thick

Word!

McCallums arrived today!  Love them.  The website said Dianite soles but they are leather.  I don't mind.  Oddly, they're no longer on the website.

Are flat laces considered dressier? I like the flat lace look on alden boots so I was thinking of putting some flat laces from amazon on my lindricks. I thought flat laces were more casual.

Been out of town on a business trip to NYC, and wore my 2.5-year old Marlow PTBs.  Interestingly, even though they have been worn a good deal, I found they are still breaking in, and nothing like walking through airports and around the city for 2 days to break in shoes.  

 

Near the beginning of the trip: 

 

In the hotel room, at the end of 2 days: 

 

Walking to dinner: 

 

 

Today, I broke out the marlow wingtips.  I am getting concerned that I might have been better served to go down 1/2 size in these, as they break in.  We'll see how they are at the end of the day.  

 

Giannis will be Friday.
