Courtesy of Andre Yew on AAAC... When I saw Tony Gaziano today to get measured for a bespoke shoe, he told me that he's leaving EG shortly to start his own bespoke shoe company, but with EG's blessings. He's telling all his potential clients so that they know what's going on before committing to a shoe. EG will no longer be offering bespoke. The new company will be called Gaziano Girling, with Mr. Girling as Tony's partner who does the sewing and finishing of the bottom part of the shoe, while Tony handles the lastmaking, clicking, the uppers, and the finishing. So everyone who starts a shoe now with Tony will probably be ultimately receiving a GG shoe. The good news is that prices are somewhat reduced to around L1490 from L1550, because he doesn't have EG's overhead, and he's providing these really cool handmade shoeboxes instead of the standard EG shoe box, along with the nice fleece shoe bags EG bespoke had. He's going to be using leathers of his own choosing, which he says is of slightly higher quality than what he was using at EG. The color scheme for the new company is all black with gold lettering, and rather handsome in an austere, Darth Vader kind of way.
