    I'm a pretty bad photographer but here it goes.. didn't wait until daylight. The calf is much darker than what's showing in the below pics; the first pic is closest but still much lighter than how the vintage oak looks in person.

    Nice choice, I wear a version of the same shoe myself today, but in black on black.

    very sexy pics. Still don't know why G&G wasn't able to fit my foot at a trunk show [​IMG]
    thanks - the TG73's definitely feel ever so slightly tight but they should conform once I break them in. Was it a width issue that you had at the show? Leaves, the black on black look pretty gangster.. i like them

    I really like the twist of using the porcine skin. Has anyone seen a pewter colored leather? I know there's a museum black? But they look like, well, black in the photos I recollect.

    perhaps they can do some bleaching on the pig skin like they can with calf

    What do you mean by this? That their RTW lasts didn't fit you?

    I was fitted for a RTW shoes by one of the owners of G&G at a trunk show in SF. They assured me that the last (don't recall which one) was the best for me and I ordered the shoe in suede. It was delivered on time, as promised. Once I got it and put it on it seemed snug across my instep. I've never really had this problem with any other shoe before. I tried stretching it out with a pair of Lobb EE width wooden trees that I have. I normally wear E in Lobb which on some Lobb lasts is a bit loose. That stretching helped but it still wasn't comfortable. I emailed the company and they were very quick to respond. I suggested going to a longer or perhaps wider size and they said, "No" that wasn't the right solution. If they didn't feel right after a few hours of wearing around the house to return them". That is what I did. They refunded my money immediately, no problem. They certainly have excellent customer service and attractive shoes.

    Those are pretty rockin' and I'm not the biggest G&G fan in general. What type of leather is used there? It looks like calf with a subtle texture.

    Still trying to figure out where to buy these in Toronto...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    In order to buy these in Toronto you will need to go to Pearson and buy a ticket to New York.

    Despite being the centre of the known universe....you cannot buy G&G in Toronto.

    That was mine. The AC had gone out in Mr. Despos office, and he was kind enough to offer. I do not now, nor never will, claim to be a competent photographer.
