    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.

    Great choices! How was the pricing on those, and in general?

    They were part of G&G's standard stock, not seconds - they were £500 each.

    There were quite a lot of one-off models and odd stock that were more aggressively priced, though, although I didn't see anything that leaped out at me (last time I got a pair of Deco Fairbanks, which was a major score).

    Nick from BE also had quite a lot of stock, but not in my size :(

    Also worth plugging is Justin's shoe stock downstairs, and an insane number of socks and pocket squares and the like.

    All in all, a very satisfying morning. Well worth the eye-rolling colleagues ("Late - and MORE shoes?!!?" :embar:)

    A great morning. Picked up a pair of Mole Suede Cambridge and Vintage Rioja Hayes.

    Cambridge were £500 as pretty much faultless. Hayes (w/ toe taps) were an absolute steal for £150 as they were pre-worn.

    Apart from the table that had pre-worn / minor faults, it looked a majority of shoes were £500.

    Holy smokes. You're right - grand larceny with the Hayes.

    Well done!

    No THAT is a DEAL! Interesting as the soles look pretty worn. My comment is related to how G&G came to possession shoes in that condition. Congrats! In honor of the G&G sale and Nick's joint venture. My first G&G obtained from Nick from BE: Wigmore. Two years with decent wear. [​IMG] Like G said... um, any proxy people? :slayer:

    I feel your pain, that is a serious blow - from my perspective, they looked really good on you this morning. But I know how it is when something looks great in the store but at home it's just no. Good luck with moving them on.
