" Design - This is one of my favourite adelaide designs to date. Some adelaides have the lower end of the facings markedly "flared out" which I find rather ugly.
Agree 100% - I really don't like markedly flaired-out adelaides; it's the reason I'm holding on to my one "classic" St James II, the last one G&G made before they switched to the new, more flaired design.
I think adelaides can be too narrow as well (I'm thinking StC, Vass and AS).
Purely personal taste, of course - to each his own.
