    Those are indeed some lovely loafers.

    I'm particularly taken with the strap shape on the second pair.

    As I was telling Nick, I had shied away from G&G in the past due to the long wait times - long for me anyway. I finally convinced myself that it would be worth the 12 week wait for a pair of Rothschilds in vintage chestnut on the DG70, and it would end up as a nice christmas gift for myself.

    So initially I'm thinking 12 weeks. But Nick says that he actually just placed a Rothschild order with Tony so delivery time would be closer to 8 weeks. Great - puts a little dent in my x-mas rationale, but no worries. I then get another update from Nick - it looks like the order has been moved up so the wait time is down to about 6 weeks. Awesome. Yesterday, Nick sends another update - he just came back from the factory and my Rothschilds should be ready today. Tony's putting the finishing touches on my burnishing requests.

    So, after literally two years of being put off by 12 week lag times, I'm told my shoes are ready within 7 days! :slayer: Mind you, I dont think this is the new normal, as Nick assured me that 12 weeks are closer to the norm.

    I guess the question now will be whether I should still get a pair for X-Mas :embar:
