    Finishing on Non-Prestige JL is far behind G&G.

    Prestige JL is equal, or slightly inferior to G&G.

    Go for JL if you like the more classic and less aggressive style of the lasts (JL7000, JL8000).

    imo, these are no wedding shoes in this colour.

    congrats to you wedding.

    I believe you mean to say that "wedding shoes" should not be that color. I would say that it depends on the wedding. We aren't having a formal affair, but, rather, are getting married on a farm. amongst friends and family who are being encouraged to dress relatively casually. Hard to argue that brown doesn't belong on a farm and I can't think of anything about exchanging rings, kissing, or dancing that would require black shoes. But, it is my first wedding, so I could be wrong.

    something along these lines. now i remember the story. a lot of people married since i joined sf. not everyone announced it, though.

    imo, there's a fine line between relatively casually and not appropriate for a wedding. i couldn't bring myself wearing brown shoes with a navy suit. will not happen.

    iirc, these shoes mean a lot to you and are affiliated with the whole ceremony. this is all what matters. tbh, i hope they fit...

    You can enlarge it, by clicking on the picture.

    Why do you want them in poster size? Some members might still be on a dial-up connection: then It takes forever and ever
    for those big pictures to load.

    not much more needs to be said. in terms of styling, JLs are much more "english" to me...calssic styles. G&Gs are a little more aggressive, sharper lines, etc....Lobbs are nice, but G&Gs are sexy. kinda like comparing the girl next door with the great rack to kate upton. ;)
