    So you mean the JL City II? If so, all 3 very different shoes. I'm not a personal fan of single monks with the exception of the JL Jermyn II/III so I'm not in the Windsor camp. I just got my St. Tropez in mole suede and LOVE them. I also have a pair of JL City II's in parisian brown museum and they are one of my most versatile pairs. If I'm picking between those 2 G&G models and the JL model...I'll have to stick with the City II's. That said, there's plenty of G&G I'd take over the City II's in a heartbeat.

    But like Coldcava said...if it's a $10k question, then the only real answer is yes. :)

    I have these Biarritz and I love them, comfortable and beautiful colour and the leather gets better with age.

    I tried those on at Barneys in BH, but just didn't pull the trigger. Look great on you!

    A couple of days ago I was so proud of myself for showing some fiscal restraint and leaving Barney's with just the one pair of Fairmont's. But as the pictures roll in I have commenced kicking myself (but at least it's with the Fairmonts).

    Fairmont is from Barneys? no wonder I can't find it anymore

    Let me know if you want to sell the Fairmont , I think I remember you are 9E UK, i.e. same size as me :smarmy:

    Could one of the G&G experts point out the difference between the Antibes and the very similar looking version, that was for a short time produced for the RLPL line?
    I think it was called the Greenfield.
    Thanks in advance.
