    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.

    I echo the statements above. To me it's just 2 different worlds of formality. I wouldn't see a shoe I wore with jeans on a Friday night as the same shoe I would wear to an interview. But with the right tailored dark denim it could work but wouldn't be my first choice.

    Glad to hear all sides of the argument though

    ^^ This is what I'm talking about, looks perfectly fine with slimmer jeans. Would not look cool with worn out baggy dad jeans.

    I would add that a nice looking sport shirt always works as well.

    right here, for now
    when I look at my Vintage Oak Warwick, something keeps telling me it could benefit from alternating between oxblood and mid / dark brown. Anyone ever done this ?

    That is great to know. Tung didn't tell me about that yet. I've been telling him to consider GG and offered to show him mine first. I hope he sends an email out to tell everyone.

    Maybe we can meet up and get the SF crew from the philly area together!

    Who from GG will be coming?

    He will definitely be sending an email and announcing on social media. I asked who was coming and he said a sales team.

    I will be there and possibly another member so I am game to get the crew together.

    Way to go [​IMG]
    I was quite happy to say perhaps it was a cultural thing re denims but others have advised it's a case of taste, style correctness rather than fashion - errrmmm perhaps they are right and that we really shouldn't wear Oxfords with jeans - errrmmm stuff and nonsense.
    Of course style evolves with fashion - on this same forum I was advised that trousers with pleats are horrible and the devil's handiwork and should never be worn. When I pointed out that Fred Astaire seemed to have made the look rather elegant I was derided.
    The pictures posted on here of members with their G&G and jeans look great IMHO.
    The Italians, French and English invented style and the Americans inherited it. To me it is fine that Americans have adopted and amalgamated the various styles in to one of their own. Italian style for example is very different from English, but it would be a brave Englishman to criticize their fashion sense; they invented the deconstructed blazer which we all love but is hardly 'proper'. In the 1800's it was not considered 'proper' to wear brown shoes in town or after 6pm....of course fashion and style go hand in hand!
    One remarkable gentleman added here in this thread that as the people who sell them wear them (I presume suits) then it's good enough for him - when I go for an evening meal I eat their food but I don't dress like the waiter or the chef.
    I am sure that Mr Gaziano and Mr Girling would be delighted some of us have chosen this heinous way to display their lovely shoes...perhaps we should ask them because their staff have as yet to refuse to serve me whilst I'm wearing Levis.

    Is squeaking around the mid-sole fairly common for new GGs? I've been slowly breaking them and assume the sound will go away. Just wanted to double check.

    Is the squeaking from air being pushed around the inside as you walk? Or from the shoe itself?

    I met Tony last year and distinctly remember him wearing vintage cherry St James with jeans. [​IMG]
