    Thanks.. I'm much more interested in photography than shoes ;-)
    I'm using a Canon Digital SLR. I struggled with the light as there isn't that many hours that we actually have natural light this time of the year. I can talk forever about photography..

    BTW - The shoe trees have my name printed. That's nice.

    Just bought this pair of St James II Vintage Cherry. The most gorgeous shoes I've ever seen. Too bad the weather outside doesn't really make me want to wear them any time soon.

    Sorry for the photo quality, I was lazy.

    As a G&G noob, I've seemingly noticed the shoes becoming rounder and less chiseled. Is this the case or is it just coincidence and timing of what I am seeing?

    you are probably just noticing the shoes that people buy in the rounder lasts.

    I have noticed the same thing, especially with the Deco range.

    I am being discharged in 57 days time and I have spent the past 2 years keeping an eye on civilian dress for when I don't have a uniform to wear every day.

    The first Deco range at Leffot about two years ago had a nice sharp angled shape to the sole, just ahead of the nice narrow waist, but these days they are much more rounded.

    I personally prefer the nice original and angled "ace of spades" look for the deco last. The SA at Leffot said he is sure Tony will be happy to cut the soles into a nice angle for any MTO, so I am not too concerned.

    For other lasts, like the GG06 for example, the rounded sole is a much better look in my opinion.

    After buying your GG's do any of you still wear AE's?

    I got a head start unloading all my AE before my first G&G (Wigmores) have arrived (hopefully they will be ready by this fall). :slayer:
