    Yes, and just some humble calf.

    From my humble experiences with shell, I don't care for it really. I know, blasphemous.

    Maybe time will change my mind...

    until you try on a pair in person, you will not fall in love. i never wanted shell until i tried on my first pair. now i love it.

    those shoes of yours are really fantastic.

    Congrats JS! Personally I only wear shell for more casual lasted boots. I think calf really matches better with sharper lasts.

    I didn't know they did G widths, I thought F was the limit. Is the G width only available for some models (like boots)? Or most models?

    Ah okay, thanks!

    I wonder if it counts when I make special orders (for F width) through Nick that take 3 months for delivery..

    I would check with Nick. If it's a simple RTW restock order, he has been known to carry F width. But, if you indeed places a MTO shoe with him (you would know by the price and leather choice options), you have access to their G width option (albeit, the website doesn't show G width as a MTO option).

    I just passed through Savile Row today, and these premises, 39 Savile Row, will become the new G&G's store:

    Although the shop is empty and the shop-fitters haven't started yet, there are a few G&G catalogues displayed in the window.

    So I conclude: "That must be it!"

    Yes, definitely.

    Altough I'm not from England but is there anyone who thinks of Ben Sherman when they think of Savile row?

    I love these loafers...the hatch grain works really well on them.
