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.

    I've continued to be under the impression that this thread is about all G&G, bespoke or otherwise.

    the idea was to centralize everything, from good or bad expirances to shoe porn or other information regardless of bespoke or their 2 RTW/ MTO ranges

    DWF, I will merely saying Luk Cha's comments were bespoke related. Sorry i was not clear. I at least believe they were bespoke related when we was referring to their new seamless wholecut sample

    It's hard not to think of all G&G's as bespoke. They have a certain je ne sais quoi that sets even their RTW line apart from the pack.

    That said...and not to diminish it one iota...it's still a "presentation."

    Of course, presentation is everything even in bespoke. It is attention to detail, attention to finish, attention to harmony, line, colour, forme, to the most exacting standard. And G&G do that very well.

    But "who knows what evil lurks...." :tinfoil: I just think they'd be so much better if they weren't held together with glue and duct tape, so to speak.

    From Bespoke England. Couldn't be happier with Nick's help and service, I already have my eye on a second pair from him.

    A little bit yes. Photo makes it look worse than it is, from head height it isn't noticeable and I imagine after a couple of polishes they'll even out.

    excuse my delayed reply, i havent checked this thread in a while, but sadly yes :embar:

    my work calls for a more "casual" attire. i only get to wear my nicer shoes and suits on occasion. so while im not exactly building an empire of shoes for daily wear i do want to have a pair of absolute kick ass shoes when i bust out the MC. right know i have my pre-SF ferragamo loafers and a pair of C&J edgwares all in black. the time for a pair of vintage oak G&Gs is fast approaching for me. you have any recs, though im pretty much sold on the westminster right now. still deciding on if i want the MH71 or TG73.
