    I have these Biarritz and I love them, comfortable and beautiful colour and the leather gets better with age.

    I tried those on at Barneys in BH, but just didn't pull the trigger. Look great on you!

    A couple of days ago I was so proud of myself for showing some fiscal restraint and leaving Barney's with just the one pair of Fairmont's. But as the pictures roll in I have commenced kicking myself (but at least it's with the Fairmonts).

    Fairmont is from Barneys? no wonder I can't find it anymore

    Let me know if you want to sell the Fairmont , I think I remember you are 9E UK, i.e. same size as me :smarmy:

    Could one of the G&G experts point out the difference between the Antibes and the very similar looking version, that was for a short time produced for the RLPL line?
    I think it was called the Greenfield.
    Thanks in advance.

    I actually have a spare pair of the Antibes in 10UK from the first price drop that I was set to return, but work's got me too busy to drive up to Beverly Hills tomorrow. PM me and maybe I can help you out.

    For future reference I think I'm the same size if you take 9.5UK in everything besides EG and G&G where I take 10E.

    Doing great Mate - thanks for asking. I will be a lot "cooler" in DC just as soon as I get a pair of these on (as i am hoping to spend much of August, not too far from Antibes)....

    Yes, the Greenfield. The only difference I'm aware of is that the Greenfield has raised apron stitching while the apron stitching on the Antibes is reversed.

    The G&G KN14 last loafers are the best fitting loafers I've come across. I have the Biarritz and just picked up the Antibes in both brown and black. Kicking myself for not getting the suede St Tropez while I had the chance.

    Looks like you've got ED to take them off your hands, but for future reference you can return to Barney's Co-op at SCP and save yourself the drive.

    Totally agree. Both the Antibes and St. Tropez are easily the best fitting loafers I've had.

    the mole suede looks particularly nice on the st tropez. a perfect match if you ask me.
