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.

    Hmm, had me pay the full cost upfront. Perhaps because it was a restock and not an MTO?

    Probably right about the stock RTW models. I can vouch for the 50/50 for MTO, which is my only experience...

    G&G asks stockists for 50% non-refundable deposits with MTOs, according to Dean Girling. Strangely, my retailer asked I pay in full once the shoe is done, however.

    most likely. my RTW were paid in full upfront, as it should be.

    Been some Gaziano & Girlings factory visits published at various places lately, and I just did another one on my blog. Might interest some of you anyway, some interesting news that I think will be new to many of you, such as problems with Horween hatch grain which forced them to strip down and recolor every shoe they make out of the leather, revision of retailers, and plans about a possible new hand welted top line.

    Here it is: http://shoegazingpunktse.blogspot.se/2013/10/reportage-besok-hos-gaziano-girling.html

    The blog is in Swedish, but you can use the translation tool on the upper right of the web version of the page to translate it to your language.

    Great write up and photos, from the translation, so G&G's vendor will be only Bespoke England? So no more supplied to Bodileys and EoM etc?

    Fantastic!

    As an awesome personal sidenote, one of your pics showcases my current concept MTO pair, you can all thank me later.

    They look great, thank you for that pic... :)

    Nice article, indeed!



    I had to laugh out loud about this sentence in English translation:

    It might be different in Swedish, but in English "the smallest room" means only one room: the toilet!
    My commiserations to poor Daniel, who has to work in the loo. :D

    Thanks jhcam8.

    jingevaldsson - most excellent blog. That new "Galway" looks terrific.

    I had the chance to meet Dean Girling at the recent Leatherfoot trunk show - very knowledgeable guy who is very passionate about the craft.

    Interesting to see that they have now developed their own version of Edward Green's Galway boot. With Edward Green currently refusing to make the Galway on anything other than the 82 and 64 last this would be a good alternative for those who wanted it on the 888.

    Edit: D'oh! RogerP beat me to it.
