Ask him if he is Italian too.
I'll ask him if he know you too...
Nah, the number in the tongue is the order number, not the number of a specific pair of shoes. An order can contain just one pair of shoes or 50.
Ah okey that explains it, thanks!
Thought I'd share a couple of pictures of MTOs that have just arrived...
This is the first Mayfair we have received and I have to say in Mole Suede with the Dainite sole I'm sure it will prove to be an extremely versatile shoe.
A touch on the extravagant side with a St James II in Vintage Cherry and a matching Suede.
Lastly a Cannes in an Oak Pigskin...
That Mayfair may be one of the nicest dubmunks I have seen.
Love those Nice's! That is exactly the way I would have made them! Perhaps for next summer
Pigskin is a great choice for a loafer!
Really? First time I hear that, how come?
Can't say I agree.
If we're talking about Italian Peccary leather, which is very soft & often used for gloves, purses etc then yes it could be a good choice for a driving shoe or the like.
But in terms of the Pigskin often used by G&G - English Pigskin, this is stiff, almost cardboard like & finds wax polish disagreeable with it's natural surface.
Not recommended in my opinion.
I couldn't profess to know about pigskin from England, or the particular characteristics of it.
But I once had a pair of italian pigskin shoes that I really enjoyed. I couldn't say they held up a long time - but they were soft, comfortable, matte finished and very casual.
Ah ok. G&G tend to use the English stuff
I guess your earlier post recommending Pigskin was based on this short experience then.
I see and G&G loafers are made of pigskin?
I've owned & then quickly sold on a pair of Derbies in 2010. But I strongly suspect G&G continue to use the same Pigskin across all their shoes. It would be a good leather for a structured briefcase or handbag, not shoes IMO.
So all of the shoes are made of pigskin there oxford modells too? I'm shocked, I didn't even know that there was pigskin shoes, im so lost in this world!
