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.

    Just picked up two more pair from Nick in his close out sale. Gorgeous shoes and a scorching good deal. Got the Hove in Vintage Chestnut and the Westminster in Vintage Cherry. Will post pics on arrival.

    Nick is indeed the best.

    he is the best! look forward to seeing your pics.


    i have the arrans in the 70 last. GG size UK11. they fit great, closer to loose than snug. i had the CJ westfields, which are on the 371, in both 11 and 11.5UK. both were horribly painful. a very narrow constricting last ime. the 70 is definitely more forgiving on a less narrow foot.

    hows this?

    ime, the DG70, although more chiseled looking and pointier in the toe, is a wider last than the CJ 341.

    jet, we are the same size if you take a 43 in the F last. I took a 9.5 UK in the DG70 Arrans, and it's fine if your feet are on the narrow side. but tbh I found
    GG sizing very frustrating while I was trying to dial in my size

    I found them to be the easiest. GG11 across the board, all lasts supremely comfortable.

    Trying not to look at Nick's website... too tempting... I have to move... G&G boxes tend to be heavy... :decisions:

    I won't be needing G&G in Detroit... :tinfoil:
