    Nice C&J! Any chance we can get sideways "profile" shots?

    Nice. I am in need of a new pair of simple black shoes and I may go for the Hallam after seeing these pics.

    How does one specify beveled waist for Martegani shoes? I never saw them attempt beveled waist, at least on the shoes that bear their name.

    I specified beveled waist on mine:

    What makes you want to go with a beveled waist on cordo boots? They seem like two great tastes that don't taste great together.

    Please elaborate. I wonder what beveled waist would take away form the cordo boot? I always though beveled waist adds a touch of elegance to any shoe, but I might be wrong in this case. What are your thoughts?

    I don't know what you mean by elegance - everyone seems to have a different definition - but I would say that a beveled waist makes shoes more sleek, more formal and more refined looking.

    While that's nice a lot of the time, it's not right all the time.

    In the same way I wouldn't wear a wedding tie w/ a yellow OCBD and khakis, I wouldn't want a beveled waist on shoes that are meant to be gunboats.

    For me, cordovan three quarters of the time means gunboats (and I like that) and boots always mean dressed down. Combine the two and you have a shoe that isn't particularly sleek or refined (nor should it be). Probably a very nice looking shoe but not one that would work with a beveled waist.

    This is interesting. Where did you get the skins by the way?

    In Mexico, you can get it on the black market but anywhere else, it's probably very difficult.

    Exotic skin wallets look best in this sort of suit wallet design: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=45959 Also, I think a belt would be interesting. People wear alligator skin belts so a sea turtle belt would be even more visually interesting. And you'll probably get compliments in Texas!

    nice looking G&Gs...were the square toe option so popular? The other pair in the "G&G April order" thread shown were also that square toe last

    I'm actually not sure what was popular. I've been slacking on my forum reading. I just don't like round toe shoes for some reason
