    haha i do love those shoes, but im always hesitant to get a shoe like that. wrinkles drive me mad. and cap toes and brouges hide them better. but excellent point.

    tho i do argue on which one is sexier

    lovely, another thing to consider. :)

    as to the deco line, its out of my price range range right now. but i would love to see the rogers on my feet some day.

    Come on luk - don't be second besting any other GGs after the deco line, you know they are not second best, just different....


    Stitchy, Westminster all the way.

    this is tempting, but i dont think it will happen right now. spoo wont let me ;)


    between you guys, and a pm from rss, and a lot of ogling, it looks like im leaning toward the westminster. (but i really like the uppingham, too bad i cant have both :( )

    now i have to actually see if i can pull ze trigger, tis a lot of scrach fo teh stitcheroo, and make sure my wife never discovers what i paid for them.

    ill update ya'll great helpers if i get a pair :)

    thanks again!

    Of the two I think the Westminster would be my preference as well. I like the whole long wing oxford sort of feel of it.

    i am not second besting anything - otherwise i'd have said get bespokes hahaha

    i was just getting the impression that stitchy was keen on some 2 eyelets, i hate the uppingham design but from G&G that piggy deco is sweet, and just a nicer option, but if stitchy is only giving himself the choice of westie or ups then westie all the way

    thro i would be tempted more by the deco than the other 2

    Chacun à son goût


    i don't have them. i just said, i feel this of them. i have something more individual, hence better for me.

    i don't see g&g rtw for me. there's no model which cries at me.
