    Do you want me to take one? I never post pictures on Style forum by principle (hate people whoring themselves) but i can do one from the side in my bedroom if you want me to..Will be a first.

    I for one, would love to see more - and per my previous comment why did you choose the eyestays to be non-croc? I like it actually, but just curious.

    This is a beautiful whole cut but it's not the same shoe. the other has a calfskin facing overlying the alligator.

    The first and second pictures from this link look like the same shoe: http://www.gazianogirling.com/samplebg/index.html I'm going to have to look more closely at G&G's croc/alligator samples next time they visit; I didn't pay much attention to them because I wasn't ready to get one yet.

    Yes, you're right. Thank you--that's the POV I was looking for.

    +1. I think they are gaudy and ugly and I don't see the point of spending the money that people spend on exotic skin shoes. Most of them (and yes even the ones posted on this thread) all look like wanna be pimp shoes.
    You're not alone. I totally agree - maybe our attitude is different over here (UK) but most of the shoes in this thread are naff pimp shoes, Eurotrash-y or downright ugly. IMHO of course.

    The picture is not great ,sorry about that and the beautiful brown colour is not enhanced enough..

    Crocs must be very classic and understated like the Perrier model by John Lobb Paris.
    Mine are uber classic with classic lines and colour.

    I have more pictures of them and also from my other bespoke models if you want.
    One burgundy and one smojkey grey from Gaziano, one claret and one dark green from Delos.
    They're all uber classic because the different colour is making them different I didn't want to overdo it.

    So what you're gonna say you got all this good stuff and not show the pictures, even though you have pictures? That really isn't cricket Lasbar, old boy. Of course I wanna see 'em! J
