    Up. Down. Good. Bad. Lot of getting beaten to hell, but a lot of joy as well. Still hanging in.


    As far as I remember I asked this question of either Tony or Dean (I think Tony), and the response was that they use cordovan because they didn't have a supplier whose stock they felt was good enough. This could have changed though, or I could be entirely wrong. It's been a while since this conversation was had.

    Edit: Apparently I am wrong, and should be ignored in this matter.

    Cross post from Recent Purchases thread......

    Just put them on for the first time tonight, great shoes, however extremely stiff and feels like they'll need a long break in time.

    I love this shoe style and the last shape as well.

    Personally I would lace the shoes with a straight lace pattern using a flat lace to preserve and present the suede facing, but that's just me.

    Thanks! I actually have no idea how to lace shoes like that:embar:

    I will be taking your advice though....Thanks!




    Thanks!!




    I have 2 pairs from RLPL by G&G besides these....one black loafer that I believe is the monaco, as well as a black cap toe lace up with medallion.
