    Hope you don't mind, jamaican. I thought I'd quote your photos for the benefit of the thread. Very nice.

    I don't mind at all... I prefer the way the top of the heel was finished before - as per my Cannes in the grain leather. I think the "dog tail" is now the standard (unles sthere is a heel conunter). I guess the dog tail is a faster way to finish that area. J

    [​IMG] don't bust my chops, man. They were my last big purchase before I started seriously saving. The car is at least a year out..

    anyone have pics of a G&G in their Mocha Calf color?

    G&G calls this Mole Suede, see below.

    There's also a lighter brown suede called Polo Suede and an even lighter Cedar Suede.

    It's always fun to save and anticipate though.

    Can't wait to see your new G&Gs though. Can we get a hint on what you're expecting?

    We're also waiting for some Canterburys, I'm guessing we were on the same line. Hopefully UPS will get them here on Wednesday. Will post pics as soon as I get them. But for now:
