AS used to manufacture for G&G before G&G started their own factory.
I thought the country line was separate from their exclusive line?
I've always found it a bit odd that the AS threads don't get more posts, seeing how many of us are proud owners. I don't know if it's a question of critical mass as some have suggested, or if there is something else. I'm as guilty of this as anyone else ofc. I have five pairs of AS shoes, and have made maybe 5-10 posts in AS threads. Meanwhile I've probably made 50+ posts in the Carmina threads, and I only own two pairs, with two more incoming.
