    Thanks for sharing those and thanks for shopping with us.
    Thank you, great feedback. Please note that you guys in the US can now chose FedEx Priority (delivery within 2-3 business days) for the same price as USPS, but USPS will be less likely to be hit by customs duties.

    Dieg0...Here are a couple after wearing and breaking in. The black calf is so soft the minimal creasing really doesn't show at a distance. I also included a fully bent shot. I get no creasing into the V (although MH71 is a perfect fit for me).

    I've been hit with customs by FedEx almost every time I've used them from Europe, so it's nice to have the option - three days is hardly any difference to minimize the chances of duties. But giving us the option is just great customer service.

    Smoothie1,,
    Here is the swatch of G&G stag leather. It looks good to me but I have not seen shoe made out of it.

    I think chestnut pin grain would look great on boot version of Woburn shoe. Although Thorpe might look good too.

    Agreed, the more options the better. Personally waiting a few more days and I may get a bit antsy, but I'd rather wait and not have to worry about paying any additional duties or fees.

    I never seen it in the real life. @Skoaktiebolaget or @Leaves probably have a better idea.

    Nah, less rugged than Zug. Stag has less texture and is more supple.

    If any of you guys are in London today or tomorrow, please come by the Gaziano & Girling flagship store and say hello to our store manager Gabriel who is working there until 6 P.M. Tomorrow Gabriel will be working at the Edward Green flagship at Jermyn Street.

    Any news on G&G Russian Reindeer and whether it's an imitation or real thing?
