    I am a great fan of this shoe. I'm trying to get a group together to get Tom Park of Leather Soul Hawaii to make a run. If any of you are interested in joining, there is a thread on AAAC where you can indicate your willingness to be part of a group buy.

    Yeah, but can you get them for $150??

    I can't get them for $150, but I can get them in my size. This should interest any spectator aficionado who is not a D width.

    Why have you chosen G&G as your bespoke shoe maker...as of late?

    I thought I had to look at myself in the mirror for wanting 4 different faux laced shoes...but 4 spectators is excessive

    The Astaire is beautiful (but I prefer it in all black and with a hard square G&G last

    The Martegani has a gorgeous soft squared last...good choice..but the large sole...just TOO BOUKOU

    How did you find the Gravatis? I thought they were too voluptuous a spec to buy from Francos then killed myself when the Betis one were all sold out.[​IMG]

    You need to jump on the possible Alden brown and snuff suede spec order over at Ask Andy. Four is not enough.

    I am not being snarky. I am being truthful. I admit that I dislike Tomasso, and probably always will, but I also really mean my apology and wish he would take it as such.
    But then you added some fresh insults.

    Don't answer, just think about it in private. I hope you sort it out.
    When you ride the Harlem Line out to utopia wearing your fancy clothes THINK of all the damage you've caused this country.

    You really have a problem. This is no longer cute or even a little bit funny.
