The heels on my G&G's are squeaky as shit. Anybody else with this problem?
Which 12 pairs you like?
perhaps it was a slight overstated, and i am always willing to be corrected - we shall see come Sept 16th
but how else other than GY welting apart from glue, staples or nano robots can you improve on??
or should i say in your opinion apart from the above, how can any maker keep pushing and improving?
Good discussions right here.
We need to separate bespoke from benchmade, when DWF mentions he is not enamored with GY welting it needs to be highlighted that here we are talking about bespoke shoes. G&G only GY welt the RTW shoes, they can't handwelt those at the same price point.
ok lets see if i have pictures for all of the 12 let call the the dirty dozen BTW they are more the design than the color anyhow these styles might change like the wind but as it is today just these or slight veriations of edit found a picture of the hayes!!

If you have squeaky shit, you need to see a doctor, that's not right
What happens on my birthday?
Is this thread only about bespoke G&G? I didn't know that. I beg your pardon.
Handwelted G&G are almost without peer in my estimation...maybe Delos.
Oh, there's lots of little things. But my point was that, for me at least, the GY nullifies a good percentage of everything we admire about G&G and calls into question whether "improving" is really an objective.
No big deal. Like I said, IMO, G&G are among the best looking shoes being made...from any angle.
I've continued to be under the impression that this thread is about all G&G, bespoke or otherwise.
the idea was to centralize everything, from good or bad expirances to shoe porn or other information regardless of bespoke or their 2 RTW/ MTO ranges
DWF, I will merely saying Luk Cha's comments were bespoke related. Sorry i was not clear. I at least believe they were bespoke related when we was referring to their new seamless wholecut sample
what's going on then?
It's hard not to think of all G&G's as bespoke. They have a certain je ne sais quoi that sets even their RTW line apart from the pack.
That said...and not to diminish it one iota...it's still a "presentation."
Of course, presentation is everything even in bespoke. It is attention to detail, attention to finish, attention to harmony, line, colour, forme, to the most exacting standard. And G&G do that very well.
But "who knows what evil lurks...." I just think they'd be so much better if they weren't held together with glue and duct tape, so to speak.
