sending my Biarritz size 9.5UK/10US back to Barneys Saturday morning, if anyone wants them send me a PM
I'm selling my Savoy in Racing Green as they are just a bit big for me. Never worn other than trying on. They are UK 8.5/US 9 E. Here's a photo:

That was what I was going in for originally as well, and then I looked at it with Tony and for my wardrobe he recommended the mole. May still have to get a second pair in polo at some point.
When you say St. James though, do you mean just the St. James, or are you willing to consider the St. James II?
I've tried looking but they don't list prices for the grants on their website, anyone know? Thanks
Lapo Elkann getting fitted by the big G
I am sure if G&G are good for me they are good for Lapo.
i go back and forth, but i tend towards the original. and btw, the mole you got is awesome.
Do we have a(nother) resident scion of industry on the forum?
Got my first pair of G&G recently, Cherry St. James II. Absolutely gorgeous!
One question, though. When I am walking on a hard even surface, stone of ceramic floor like in many office buildings, the shoes make a funny noise. The edge of the heel first connects with the floor, and almost immediately the rest of the heel before the sole does. It feels like the shank is very flexible allowing the heel to move a bit. The noise is of course exaggerated on a hard surface because of the brass nails.
Is this considered to be a "feature" of G&G, or should I be worried/take action?
The difference between the two is the embellishment on the heel cap - that little point. In the end I preferred the smooth line, though I think my reason for it - that the point was a bit informal for my tastes - is a bit ludicrous in hind sight.
Where are his signature 100 x 100 lapels??? why isn't he wearing a jacket??!
Not that any of us needed anymore assurance of the greatness of GG, but for those nay sayers here we have it!
I have a pair.. here's a pic of the best looking G&G's
