    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.

    Thanks, unfortunately it looks like one or two aren't going to work for me.

    The deal of the century I had yesterday for the Hayes (£150) isn't going to work out for me. When I got home I noticed the heel creaks when walking and hazard a guess they may have been a return to G&G (hence the light wear on the soles).

    I assume they can be fixed but may look to sell them on.

    Can't believe I've gone this long without a pair of Thorpes in my weekend rotation.

    Lovely pair!
    Cannot agree more, and finally have a pair on order from our good friends at Skoak and really looking forward!

    They look fabulous.

    So you think these might be keepers then?

    I know I can't wait to get my pair later this year.

    They look great.

    Sorry to hear, wrong size?

    Absolutely - I think the biggest win for me (and potential risk to my wallet :lol:) has been the broadening of my G&G horizon from Deco-lasted lace-ups in smooth, highly polished calf, to more conservatively casual/rugged styles and leather textures. Given my sizing debacle a few years back (plug: I still have a number of pairs available, see signature below!), I'd not have taken another risk, let alone a double one with the Monaco and Thorpe, at full price.

    A whole new world! I might actually go back today to see what's left :)

    Glad to hear your finally finding options which you believe will work out you.

    Good luck at the sale, and I look forward to seeing a few more posts (kops) later in the day.

    Agreed, wish I'd picked up a pair yesterday too, tempted to go back this afternoon!

    Could someone let me know the current retail price of the G&G Wigmore, sans trees? I'l be selling a pair and need a starting point to figure out the asking price (don't know what I've done with the receipt from my pair).

    Thanks.
