    Nice Mayfair pair. I've already mentioned to Nick that is is a very sleek design without the seams. An inspiration for my next pair. Enjoy!

    Very nice. I love the medallion on the Nice. It takes it up a few notches.

    The angle of the seam at the heal counter is yet another subtle bit of lovliness.

    Honestly, too many. Especially considering i have all the MTO options to choose from, but i am looking at the following

    Oxfords:
    -Grant, Sinatra, Walkton

    Derbies:
    -Wilkshire, Fairmont

    Boots:
    -Arran, Wigmore

    Would like a boot first, as i would get more use out of casual options. I will probably get the derbies on my list last, they seem pretty similar except for the toe. Love the two toned wingtip, but something about the whole cuts that keeps me going back to the Sinatra or Grant.

    Looking forward to collecting some GGs, even if i have to wait 4-5 months for each of them :)

    From my experience with G&G, IMHO:

    Boots; go for the Arran first, it is more elegant and versatile.
    Oxford: Sinatra is best unless you already have a wholecut.
    Derby: Either is fine, but my chice is the Uppingham. More unique or if you have the wallet for it, Deco Rogers.

    You're not crazy. It was a sort of shocked wow, "Wow that bear's coming at us awfully fast", "Wow that's a huge tidal wave", "Wow those shoes are really freaking blue"
