Guys

These just arrived today and I thought I would share them with you

They are the Barclay modelled on the bespoke suede shoe that G&G take on their travels. Its made in Mocha kid suede, It has a finer nap than normal suede. I particularly like the stiching being done in a contrasting colour

The stingrays are fine, I usually wear them as a formal shoe with dinner suit due to them being so dark

they actually look like suede from a distance

Don't hate me, order a pair

They are fantastic in the wild, I really have to say that Tony and Dean seem to have upped their game with their MTO's now. If you see some of samples they sent to the Armoury, they are really finely finished and some are without a butt hole (just as you like)

Looks very nice. I bet this same model with no broguing around the throat and upper vamp would look even cooler -- a slightly more minimalist statement. I am tempted to bespeak a pair with just a double-stitched faux-captoe in that semi-chevron pattern, and no holes.

I am really digging the suede seen here, so would probably go that direction, with the contrast stitching.

Yes, some of them are seamless. The heel counter bringing it all together
