1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Presumably you will tighten up the laces....that much gaping pace would look horrible. Show a picture of them on your feet.

    I'll get one up soon. Can't see from the pic, but they've got 3-piece boot trees in them. With the tree is, that's actually about as tight as the laces will go. They fit much better on my feet...

    Is that a store display MM? Please don't tell me you have a bespoke cabinet for your bespoke G&Gs! :cheers:

    What would you call that shoe? A spectator I suppose. Wonderful combo.

    As I've said before, I think you should have less patina on the toes and have a more gradual shift from the dark toes to the upper. Now it almost looks like you got two toe caps.
