    Still no MTO and they aren't the best of styles I have ever seen. Loving the John Lobb Chapel on there website.

    I still think it makes more sense to buy from Nik at Bespoke.

    for example:-

    Walkton @ Bespoke England = GBP 585 = circa $ 900.00
    Walkton @ Barney's = $1125 <-- at this price they better include shoe trees and shipping

    At this price point, you shouldn't be splitting hairs over price. Sometimes people want to buy local, the extra money is worth it to them.

    Yeah, buy local. Support you local retailers! A tiny brand like G&G would never have succeeded if it were not for these guys...

    Damn since Barney's is carrying G&G, does that mean we will have even longer wait times?

    If someone want to buy those G&G shoes from Barneys, do the customer need to wait 3 months? Or do they have a big stock with all sizes?

    meh, only 12 pairs. 2 of which are the arran boot, and 2 that are the westbury. so really 10 choices. in predetermined colors, materials and lasts. sizes 9.5-11 US, and a few 8.5s. all only available for pre-order. with expected delivery in july. underwhelming. this actually makes me happy.

    presumably they picked models that they determined would sell on visual appeal even to someone not familiar with the brand. and based on the initial offerings success they will likely determine weather or not to expand the line.


    someone who works there? ;)
