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.
