Gaziano & Girling USA Trunk Show Schedule April 2007 - Page 3

post #31 of 255
Drumroll...

And the (English) manufacturer of G&G is... (fill in the blanks)

To my knowledge, there are only a handful of firms in England that can make shoes that well. Even before Dean goes at the finish personally and does his magic with the waist iron, it must have come from a prominent firm...

If you know, tell. I don't know anyone who knows, and I've never seen it posted. So far as I know, they have (improbably) managed thus far to keep it a secret.

Perhaps the honeypot approach....

Oh, I'm sure that everybody in the Northampton shoe business knows quite well, as does everybody in the London bespoke shoe business. It's just that none of them is telling any consumers.

Well, I placed my order in late September, that's gonna make it six month (or more). Even EG is quicker!

Well unfortunately I don't know or I would in fact tell.

When I personally looked at the G&G shoes I must say that I was impressed. Tony Gaziano is coming to DC in early April and I will meet him there, order a pair, and join the waiting game with everyone else.

Looking for suggestions....

There is no trunk coming anywhere near me so I am just about to place an order for a MTO. Since i'm looking at 20 week delay I figured I would go ahead and order two pairs. For the first one I know exactly what I want. However, for the second pair I'm not sure. Any suggestions? last, color, model etc.

Well, I am no shoe expert, but I think we need some more information. Dress? casual? Are there any holes you want to fill in your shoe collection? Do you want something traditional? More edgy? And so on.

Yeah I gues i could of been a little clearer. Ok gotta be dress, edgy is good, no black. Honestly I don't really NEED another pair of shoes so i'm really just looking for something different. You can pretty much see that I don't really know what to get. If some of you were to buy a G&G shoe today what would you get?

thanks again

That's sweet. Who compiled this photoalbum - Tony himself?

All this makes me frustrated that I missed CSE (got called away on a business trip that proved useless in the end. Grr...). I'm interested in G&G shoes, but I don't want to waste their time and fear I won't be in a position to place any orders in April... Would have been nice to see them in the flesh, though. Anyone want to invite me along to their appointment in April?
