    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.

    Waited it out and now I am disappointed that I did. Looking forward to plenty of shoe pics!

    Please post an inside color vs outside color comparison. That and natural lighting always makes everything better :)

    I has only indoor pics. :(

    Outdoor pics will be taken when the shoes are on my feet!

    I think I did a good job with the DSLR tho.

    You are rubbing it in!!

    If the code became active and worked on 500GBP and above, I'd kop two pair right now (well Friday, after Barney's Warehouse sale).

    I am just saying.....:D

    Thanks! :)

    Bummers. :(

    --

    Ok, here is the deal, folks.

    The first pair is an MTO I have been working on with Nick for a little bit, and once again he came through like only he does. I went with the St. James II in Polo Suede, on the 73 last. Made it personal with a medallion on the toe and green leather lining. There were many questions back and forth, but Nick put up with me all the way through, with nary a complaint, and the end result was nothing short glorious.

    Pair #2 was very serendipitous for me. They are the Uppingham, also on the 73, in Vintage Rioja Calf. These shoes are the very first GGs I fell in love with, about 2 years ago or so. I saw them on the BE site and have wanted them from that first glance. I never picked them up because there were other needs in my shoe rotation that were more pressing, but as soon as these went on sale, I really had no choice in the matter.

    I cant thank Nick enough for his exemplary service, and I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who is looking for GGs, to make Nick your first stop, and hopefully, your only stop.


    That being said, here goes....
