    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
