    IMO, EB's take on the St James II is much more elegant than the new St James II that G&G developed with the 'bespoke-style' facing.

    Everyone should choose what he likes. Beauty (and preference) is in the eye of the beholder.

    Some favor Edward Green, others G&G, others still EB, and others prefer a different maker or don't like "Adelaide" style at all. Personally, I think this style is awesome! Each maker executes a version which is good in its own right.

    Patrik, you guys just continue to rock. Well done. Can these trees be bought separately?

    @Leaves , any plans to restock the Carmina Autumn Brogue? I totally slept on this great makeup and now it's out of stock in my size.

    Also, any word on the Carmina suede semi-brogue GMTO from August yet?

    The Carmina Autumn Brogue should arrive in late December or January but the Carmina Suede Semi Brogue GMTO is estimated to arrive in early December.

    Potentially dumb question here, but are trees standard with Bonafe's?
