    I'll have the carpet ripped up and replaced right away! Sir!

    Shouldn't your samples be here soon?

    excellent.

    indeed they should. i was hoping today but i havent got a call from the wife at home saying anything arrived. :( i know from the tracking info from royalmail that they reached the states but the usps info is not registering so i have no idea of their status. nick warned me that might happen.

    Is it possible that the wife is holding them hostage in an attempt to curtail your out-of-control spending of late?

    Remind me what's the difference between regular G&G and Deco again, besides the shape of the last and maybe the leather?

    Hand welting is probably the biggest single difference.
    I'm sure there are other construction upgrades as well.
    Special leather finishes and more finishing in general.
