    The look more aggressive in the pictures than they really are.But it's not exactly a Budapester. :) If you're worried they'll look "untrendy" in 5 years, look on the bright side, they'll look cool again in 15. :embar:


    Ah yes, don't wear them outdoor please. First of all it looks, well..let's just say wear them indoors. :happy: Of course, if you own a mansion, walk around in a robe drinking Whiskey all day and make a living off nude girls, then it's totally fine. And if you answer to the title Maharadja. Also, from a practical point of view, they won't last very long if you'd use them outdoors. Construction.

    You never wore black velvet slippers with a tux? or pumps to an opera? You never went to a boarding school?

    Man, I'm all tears here.

    Don't worry chogall, with good counseling and lots of time, you could get over it.

    Or you could blame your parents!

    A lovely story but one that many people will believe I am afraid, I do not know if you made it up or copied it from elsewhere but this is how internet myths start. A little correct information and a lot of hokum

    By the by, I've read that both G&G fly to Italy to hand-pick calf hides. At least the RTW pairs have a unique vegetable smell I haven't come across with other makers. Does anyone know which tanneries they favour?

    I have also noticed the smell. Maybe Tony wipes his ass on all of the hides before lasting? At least I hope before lasting.
