    not errone has the funds to consistently post their own buyer pics. i certainly would like to. in the mean time, i very enjoy the vendor pics. both for the chance to ogle, and they give me ideas for what i may like to order in the future, like a breeding ground for future creations.

    I greatly appreciate the vendor photos. Particularly of MTOs, bespoke, and new models.

    I would probably have concerns if a vendor was on here all day every day flogging photos of something that is from their already published running line - but that's just not the case.

    Rock on Nick and Leaves!

    lol, maybe so. but i think they are very tasteful about it here, and not at all pushy or obnoxious. they even seem to endorse each other, not compete with each other. i have no beef. and i appreciate their efforts.



    i however, am not a vendor, but a customer. and i wholeheartedly endorse their services. :)

    I have one pair from G&G in KN14. It is the Antibes loafer. KN14 fits similar to TG73, but designed for slip on shoes. In my experience, it has the same width as the TG73. G&G offer it in two fittings, E (medium) and F (wide).

    I wear a UK9.5 in all G&G lasts, however I need to size up to a UK10 for my KN14's.

    True, they are top notch e-tailers, great communications and support. And best thing is they both seem to love G&G products.

    since you have it . . . . i was considering double soul or maybe i should say sole.
    on 1 hand i can "see it' but also wonder if it might turn out a little chunky. have an opinion ?

    I think a single sole on the Cannes is fine. A double sole will make it too casual and odd looking since the vamp is shorter on this shoe.
    By the way, mine tore aboy 1/8 inch at the vamp curve. I was told they changed the design to correct the problem since I bought mine, but ask them about it.
