    Lovely.

    MTO?

    I a little bit of the pin grain as an accent on a pair of Oakhams. It catches the light so beautifully.

    PLEASE post pictures after some wearings and polishings. I'll be very interested to see how these mature.

    Really like those oxfords. I feel that at least 50% of G&G models are fugly, cant understand the love those models get here

    50% is an overstatement. Some of their original models are mostly rehash of classic designs. Only the newer ones have been strafing away into more exotic designs.

    you like chisel toes or not? that's the question. there you are...

    deco is a different beast, imo. it really needs the type of guy and wardrobe to implement them.

    Classic, quiet, versions of cap toes, brogued oxfords, austerity brougues, wholecuts, etc. etc. are available from G&G for those who prefer such things. :p

    He said models, not lasts. But I do agree that certain models/designs collide with certain lasts. For example, DG70 w/ any cap toes looks chopped and unnatural.

    I am still trying to find the wing tip oxford...
