    Nice link and write up. Some of these G&G models however, are too pointy and more Italian than English looking.

    By the way just had a quick read on your article, only 7 to 8 full time employee for marking shoes[​IMG] ?

    Can't imagine how these guys are going to scale up. Any real scale up will require specialization at certain point...

    Looks like TG73 to me.

    And those shoes are some of the worst kind of awful I've seen recently.

    i love the soles on G&G shoes, just not a fan of the square toes... Good job with the blog post though!

    I have been contemplating their racing green as of late. Is it safe to say these finishes are all racing green or perhaps a custom color?
