1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Popped my G&G cherry finally. Too bad Barneys was just a one night stand...but what a glorious one night stand it was.

    Gave in and ordered a pair of Antibes as well today. They look better in the pics above than on the website. 3 pairs in one month.

    Guys - if you can't find what you want on the site or at Madison, try Barneys in Beverly Hills. They may charge a bit for shipping via ground on a sale shoe, but they had some sizes of G&G left. I just picked up the Black Westburys that are out on the site. They also had the Antibes and the Chelsea (that perforated cap slip on) in my size 9UK, 9.5US.

    :slayer: this warms my heart.


    you can also try emailing him through his site. even if he takes through the weekend to get back to you (i mean, the man has to rest sometime), it will be well worth it i guarantee.

    thanks stitch i was just sending the message i'm truly ready to jump on a St. Nick shoe.
    it's possible i may have offended a little bit when i didn't jump on the Arran test fit shoe he sent free of charge . . . .
    just being Nick. the rioja Grant is one i can truly lust after and is gonna 'make' a new zoot i'm having made up.

    I only asked about the size 9/9.5 and they had the black Westbury, Chelsea and Antibes. They also had the JL captoe but in green.

    aha, we're the same size then. The one on Madison had a Chelsea in 8.5UK/9US and Antibes in not sure what size

    For the JL ones on Madison they had (as of Friday)

    This one, but in green, must be the same oxford we're talking about
    http://www.barneys.com/John-Lobb-Becketts/501587606,default,pd.html?q=john lobb&index=16

    This one in a black, but only size 12

    Man, might need to pick up what last Lobb in size 12. Was it 12 US or 12 UK sized?

    I apologize to the GG gods for the JL talk...

    actually I can't remember..., you'd better call them. The only business card I got is a one called Michael Grills (212 833 2048), I am pretty sure he still works in the shoe department, give him a call.

    I think Mike from Epaulet mentioned this isn't in production yet. I may have that part incorrect, but its hand-dyed and more expensive.
