    Received my G&G bespoke shoes this week and thought I should document and share their glory before subjecting them to the scummy streets. Also a couple other recent receipts: G&G Astaire ordered alongside the bespokes in October and spec'ed as in the brochure - mole suede/dark brown pin grain, DG70 last - and Carminas purchased and coloured dark violet in Paris. My photography skills don't do the shoes justice; the bespoke shoes in particular are ethereal.

    How do you like the Carmina's? I saw a bunch of their shops in Spain but never stopped in. They are good year welted?

    Yeah right, you didn't like their outlet in Savile Row, or was it something even less significant? I can't remember. Anyway, thanks for reminding us![​IMG]

    I just saw a documentary about people in love with objects. Could you be one of them? In love with your shoes and unable to communicate with other people in a sociable way?
