    I'll throw these in to the mix. Happy Easter!

    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.

    Exquisite shoes. Now someone please remove the can of coke next time.

    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.

    Pics aren't great, but as we know we are always excited for a new pair of shoes! [​IMG] [​IMG] Black Hayes with an extended medallion and recessed metal toe plates.

    ^ Nice, Patrick. What made you do TG73 over say, a DG70? I had you pegged differently in lasts.

    Good question. I love the chiseled toe, but when I placed the order I told myself that my next will be a DG70, Grant maybe. Then of course I walked into the trunk show and saw the Deco line. Now I am like, hmm always room for an even more chiseled last. That Bowlly is looking mighty fine...

    I would argue that the deco line is more pointy, but not more chiseled. You get a more chiseled last with bespoke. [​IMG]

    I don't know, I guess. When I saw the Deco line in person I felt that they were a little less aggressively pointy than in pictures. I would say that my Corthay and Rider balmoral are the most "chiselled" of any of my shoes and certaintly the most bespoke looking.

    great pictures!

    i dont find deco's too aggressive, they are slightly longer than the regular range but when i compared them to my first bespokes from G&G there are very similar - i find corthay a lot snoutier and pointy
