    Hi, everyone! My first post here, although I'm not technically a newbie: I've been lurking in the shadows since August 2012, educating myself sartorially. After a bit of a midlife crisis that began in mid-2011 I decided through late 2012 that it was time to update my somewhat forgettable two-shoe collection (one black, one brown, always from DSW... and sometimes it even included (gasp!) a pair of Aldo's (double gasp!). Well, this thread certainly helped educate me about Gaziano & Girling and the awesome shoes and accessories they make. Did business with Nick at Bespoke-UK, picked up a few pairs from Leffot, and met Dean Girling for a pair of MTOs that should hopefully be completed in February. I'll post pics of those when they arrive.

    In the meantime, here's the first pic I'll share with you folks in this thread: G&G Rothschild in vintage chestnut. Accompanying timepiece by Patek Philippe.

    Thanks to everyone for sharing their thoughts, perspectives and pictures. I am most appreciative. :)

    Yes, that would be quite inappropriate, wouldn't it? :)

    Oh boy! What a good question. I have the McAlister in Walnut and the Rutledge in deep brown but both have become my beaters since I got my G&Gs, EGs and Corthays.........

    Welcome brethren. Thou shalt now be required to poast pictures of all of your G&G collection 'on the hoof'. Initiation rituals are not too brutal around here...................:embar:

    You're just happy you're the one who gets to do the "booting" this time.

    Looking good! Nice to see more people entering the G&G market, especially through Sko-akt!



    :) yes that is probably the largest cost of going bespoke, the other really great shoes becomes slightly less great

    Thanks!

    Yeah I picked them up at Skoaktiebolaget. Adam is a great guy. I originally bought a pair of Carmina's but was worried the heel slip wouldn't go away, so I exchanged them. It also made it seem like I spent only $600 on them because I was only paying the difference. Yay for justifications!

    Thanks! As soon as weather permits I'll have them out and about.
