    Fabulous shoes that break in beautifully....I hope you enjoy them. I do.

    Also, they look a little blah when new but a regime of Saphir Reno, cream and wax brings them to life.

    This is vintage cedar...I used cognac on the sides and top.....medium brown on the toes and the instep band...curious to see if I can get some kind of nice effect. The lighting really sucks but you should get some idea.

    Khaki's has repriced their G&G's. Prices also include the lasted and sized shoe trees. The prices are now comparable to the other dealers including shoe trees.

    By the way, don't G&G offer some of the best shoe trees? They are beautiful.

    Thanks for the heads up. Now they need to work on their AS pricing. Lol

    This is pretty big actually since AS has restricted UK merchants from selling outside the EU (i.e., US of A).

    Why big? This is one of AS US dealers, I presume.

    Just the AS prices on KoC are around a couple hundred more than other US distributors (e.g., Leffot). Anyway, I didn't mean to detract from G&G. :)

    Have to save up for another pair.

    Khaki's AS pricing also includes lasted shoe trees in the price.

    Good idea. It is absolutely beautiful along the coast right now. I just returned from camping in Big Sur. This, IMO, is the best time of year to be in the Carmel/Big Sur area. Mild weather and it isn't crowded. I stopped in at Khaki's. They have a ton of new things in for Spring and even more shoes arriving soon.
