    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No both in standard Calf leather

    They do the "Nice" in suede but i prefer the leather as you see the punch hole detail more

    I think when my shoes arrive i might invest in a pair of those just want to make sure the 1st pairs fit ok. I want to wear my G&G loafers without socks in summer but not sure if i will slide them on ok

    When i ordered my shoes they asked what detail i wanted on the toe. Agree with the initialling. What bespoke's have you got?

    they will do whatever existing medallions they have, but they do not create new medallions for MTO. so you can taked the hayes medallion and put in on your MTO of whatever model. but to create an entirely new medallion is bespoke only.

    sadly, i havent got to bespoke yet, im not that baller. i got the westminster, posted it a few pages back. here is a pic in case you missed it.

    I must have missed these but they are beautiful :slayer:

    I've been going back and forth between the Westminster or the rothschilds. This may help me lean towards the westminsters

    i have wanted to wear them a few times, but it keeps raining every time i want to give em a go. like today for example. :(


    thanks justin, i love em.

    main design difference is the side of the shoe. the westies are a long wing, which apparently are more suited for suits with stripes and other patterns. the whole, if one area is loud another should be subdued to balance it out thing. but in general, i prefer them. i dont want to tell ya what to do, but im sure your be happy with the westminsters. :)
