    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't think I'll ever go bespoke. Just can't justify the price. I've got a pretty forgiving set of feet (d width), normal arch, etc. maybe in 30 years when I've got $3k to blow on a single pair

    For the guy's going bespoke if you go the Japanese bespoke route I'd seriously consider Hidetaka Fukaya; my close friend has feet which are impossible to size and he got a pair and their are [​IMG] worthy! I've got similarly retarded feet so hopefully in future (whenever that is) I will go bespoke; probably Cleverly or Koji Suzuki.

    Yep, me too. If you are a good fit in RTW then the only point is to try the bespoke-only makers, or get different detailing that isn't offered in the maker's MTM program

    $4K and above. In most cases, you will pay around $5k.

    Merry Christmas to you too!

    I don't mean to be rude but are you perhaps the same Nick from Bespoke England?

    I have been registered with SF for 6 months now and I never realized the owner of the G&G retail site might also be a SF member! LOL!

    If you are the same Nick I am the guy who sent you an e-mail with a bunch of urls of G&G stuff I am interested in buying, I really do hope you have had time to look through them because I am a REALLY keen buyer!

    If you are not the same Nick, well, perhaps you could sell me some shoes anyway ;-)
